About Inmanta

Inmanta is the leading expert in end-to-end service orchestration of services and networks. 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.

We always strive for excellence in everything we do. We are committed to deliver the highest quality and to continuously improve our products and solutions.

We empower service providers to rapidly deliver and efficiently manage their services
