VEON is latest operator to join ngena

VEON will offer SD-WAN services to its enterprise customers in Russia, Georgia, Ukraine and Kazakhstan after joining ngena.

The operator becomes the sixteenth member of the alliance, which has built a shared global software-defined network to supply businesses with next-gen connectivity.

Deutsche Telekom’s enterprise arm T-Systems became the first telco to launch ngena’s inaugural product, an SD-WAN-based hybrid VPN, last September.

The Germany-based operator was one of the founding members of ngena, alongside CenturyLink, Reliance Jio and SK Telecom, when it launched in February 2016.

Eugene Viskovic, Chief Business Officer at VEON, said: “VEON is always on the lookout for innovative, secure and easily deployable network services for our multinational customers.

“Through the shared network of the Next Generation Enterprise Network Alliance, VEON will be in a position to provide SD-WAN globally.

“VEON is proud to join ngena and extend the reach of its shared network to VEON’s unique Eurasian geographical footprint.”

VEON follows fellow European operators Telekom Austria, who also signed up to join ngena earlier this month, Altice and KPN.

Franz Bader, Director, Wholesale, at Telekom Austria said: “By sharing the existing resources of partners on a global scale we can serve the ever more demanding requirements of our customers and we are going to compete with the largest international players.

“The combination of SDN-technology, full automation and the unique sharing business model of ngena is unmatched.

“It goes above and beyond other SD-WAN models.”
