Who we are

Recognized by Gartner as a Cool Vendor, Inmanta empowers telecom companies and communications service providers (CSPs) to deliver their services much faster, at scale and with more flexibility.

Through purpose-built multi-domain and truly intent-based orchestration we automate and streamline services and networks end to end, eliminating complexity and minimizing time to cash and total cost of ownership (TCO). Instead of months and years to release and deliver services, Inmanta reduces the process to a matter of weeks and minutes.

Leading telecom and communication service providers rely on Inmanta’s orchestration solutions to deliver mission-critical services, beef up their automation process, increase operational efficiency, and to guide them through their transformation journey.
