The Next Generation Enterprise Network Alliance (ngena), a grouping of telcos launched at this year’s Mobile World Congress, has added Comarch to its ranks.

The Poland-based vendor will provide “comprehensive” BSS services to the alliance, which aims to offer network services to global businesses early next year.

ngena counts Deutsche Telekom, CenturyLink, Reliance, SK Telecom and Cisco as the founding members.

In February, it said 20 additional service providers would join the alliance “at full global deployment”.

The services ngena intends to provide, such as hybrid VPNs, will use technologies including software-defined networks and virtualisation.

The alliance is an independent legal entity with its own management and profit strategy.

Dr Marcus Hacke, Managing Director at ngena, said: “The decision to select Comarch as the provider of the BSS platform was based on their ability to deliver a fully integrated, highly-scalable solution with catalogue-driven processes and a centralised data model as part of an overall agile implementation.”

Marcin Dąbrowski, VP and Head of the Telecommunications Business Unit at Comarch, added: “In its goal to deliver digital services for enterprises on a scale comparable with the biggest OTT players, ngena is unique.

“We are proud to be a part of this project and committed to contributing to its success.”

Earlier this year, Comarch signed an M2M/IoT-focused technology partnership with Nokia.

The two partners said they planned to work together on connectivity management platforms and vertical applications services.
