Silver Peak and Masergy partner to deliver managed SD-WAN service
Silver Peak, the global provider in broadband and hybrid WAN solutions, has announced a partnership agreement with Masergy to offer Silver Peak Unity EdgeConnect and Unity Boost managed SD-WAN services to its enterprise customers. The agreement expands Masergy’s Managed Network f(n) solution portfolio with high-performance Managed SD-WAN solutions.
Masergy, which operates the largest independent Software-Defined Platform in the world, selected the Silver Peak SD-WAN solution for its zero touch provisioning, centralised orchestration and Dynamic Path Control features, as well as Unity Boost for WAN optimisation, all in a single integrated solution. Collectively, the Silver Peak SD-WAN solution offers the enhanced performance and features that complement the company’s global high-performance, hybrid network solutions.
“After evaluating a range of SD-WAN solutions, we selected the Silver Peak EdgeConnect SD-WAN solution based on its advanced software, performance and security features and functionality.” said Tim Naramore, Masergy CTO. “When you combine our patented technology, hybrid networking and unmatched customer experience with Silver Peak’s ability to build simple-to-deploy and dynamic SD-WANs, we will deliver truly unique and differentiated service offerings to our customers.”
With the addition of Silver Peak to the Masergy Managed Network f(n) portfolio, enterprises will benefit from:
- The ability to non-disruptively deploy an SD-WAN within existing network environments
- Multiple options to automatically connect users to applications via high-quality links at all times, greatly enhancing the end-user experience and satisfaction
- Unique levels of reporting and analytics that provide customers with granular visibility into their legacy and cloud applications
- Zero-trust security and control for all connectivity options
“Masergy is the type of forward-thinking service provider that enterprises should look to as they evaluate and adopt SD-WAN solutions to support their evolving WAN and IT needs,” added David Hughes, founder and CEO of Silver Peak. “Masergy is leading the network services transformation by offering flexible and differentiated WAN and cloud connectivity solutions that support its vision for the programmable enterprise.”
The Masergy-Silver Peak collaboration underpins Masergy’s relentless commitment to intelligent hybrid networking and its debut into the fully managed SD-WAN services segment, a fast growing market that IDC estimates will reach $6 billion by 2020.
Unlike SD-WAN solution providers that focus simply on allowing enterprises to leverage Internet connectivity, Silver Peak delivers a level of broadband quality of service that increases the reliability and security customers expect from a private WAN.
With the Silver Peak Unity EdgeConnect SD-WAN solution, enterprises can improve the resiliency of their WANs, dynamically balance traffic across multiple paths and accelerate application performance over any source of connectivity. In addition, Silver Peak offers customers the option to add a WAN acceleration performance pack, Unity Boost, to further accelerate application performance over distances.
