T-Systems has launched the first product powered by ngena, the global network alliance for enterprises.

Debuted at Mobile World Congress 2016, ngena is an alliance of operators and vendors that aims to eliminate the multiple, individual contracts that multinationals have to sign currently in order to get network connectivity where they need it.

ngena unveiled its first product, a SD-WAN-based hybrid VPN in July, and Deutsche Telekom’s enterprise arm has now signed up to offer it to its customer base.

The Germany-based operator was one of the founding members of ngena, alongside CenturyLink, Reliance Jio and SK Telecom.

T-Systems said the offering, which it has branded Smart SD-WAN, is available in three flavours depending on how the network access is configured and whether it is provided via the internet, Ethernet, or a combination of the two.

It also supports other services, such as secure regional gateways from the corporate network to the internet and traffic management.

ngena Managing Director Marcus Hacke said: “The launch of the Deutsche Telekom offering is an important milestone for our young company.

“We are ensuring that ngena is connecting up more and more telecommunications providers worldwide.

“To do so we are expanding our own network along with the access nodes worldwide.

“The first network nodes in Germany, the United States, China and South Korea are already active.

“By the end of the year there should be around 10, providing us with more comprehensive coverage of the regions of North and South America, Europe and Asia.”
