The firm’s Unity EdgeConnect solution enables enterprises to radically minimize the cost and intricacies of building a WAN by leveraging broadband, allowing customers to use broadband connections and enhance their current multiprotocol label switching (MPLS) networks. This solution increases application performance, improves customer responsiveness, and reduces capital and operational expenses of the enterprises across multiple paths in zero time delay. Silver Peaks’ Unity EdgeConnect aids customers to adapt to a broadband WAN at their convenience—be it site-by-site, or via a hybrid WAN approach, leveraging both broadband Internet connectivity (cable, DSL, LTE, etc.) and MPLS.
The solution helps enterprises deliver conventional application performance and qualified service across the WAN, by gaining granular visibility and control to recognize, reliable and fragment applications in placement with the current branch offices’ infrastructure and network services.
Unity EdgeConnect enables customers to move to a broadband WAN at their own level and pace
“With an ever-increasing number of applications delivered as a service via cloud infrastructure, it is important that enterprises be able to move at cloud speed,” explains Hughes. “Silver Peak Unity EdgeConnect is the premier solution for customers that want to leverage the internet more effectively in a secure, controlled, and automated manner while delivering consistent and reliable performance for users connecting to any application.”
As a corroboration of such prowess, Silver Peak assisted EarthLink Telecommunications, a broadband Internet Service Provider with their NX appliances to optimize WAN performance and reduce bandwidth costs. Silver Peak leveraged a wide range of real-time network optimization techniques to maximize application performance across the WAN while decreasing IT operational costs. The firm optimized all the applications that ran over IP, including file, email, SQL, web, Voice over IP (VoIP), streaming video, Citrix, Virtual Desktop Infrastructures (VDI), real-time data replication, and remote backup to provide the best Return on Investment (ROI) for WAN acceleration. “Silver Peak has enabled us to double our existing WAN capacity without requiring expensive bandwidth upgrades, which is critical for controlling ongoing operational costs,” says Sarmad Ahmed, GM at EarthLink Telecommunications.
With mega trends like virtualization and cloud computing placing new demands on the data center for WAN capacity and LAN connectivity, Silver Peak intends to expedite the pace of technological changes with its pragmatic WAN optimization product—considered as the next-generation data center.
