Deutsche Telekom(DT) announced the launch of its Network Function Virtualization(NFV)-based Smart SD-WAN solution, a rapidly deployable network connections and services that is based on the Ngena network – the Next Generation Enterprise Network Alliance, for global enterprises 

Through the global alliance, which DT together with co-founders CenturyLink, Reliance Jio, and SK Telekom set up at the beginning of 2016, multinational corporate customers in particular can roll out corporate networks and data connections as virtual private networks(VPN) much faster than before, said the Operator. 

Deutsche Telekom subsidiary, T-Systems, is the first alliance partner to launch a network offering based on the Ngena platform.

DT's Smart SD-WAN is available in the access variants XS, S or M – depending on whether the network access is configured singly or redundantly, and whether it is provided via the Internet, Ethernet, or a combination of the two. 

With the standardized and automated 'Smart SD-WAN' offering, T-Systems is supplementing its existing classic IP VPN offering IntraSelect, which can be tailored to specific customer requirements. 

Patrick Molck-Ude, Network Business Lead for DT
With our global network offering we are striking a chord with multinational customers. Network services that are quickly deployable, more secure, more powerful and global are the engine for the industrial production of the future and a growth area for Deutsche Telekom.

Marcus Hacke, MD, ngena
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.
