Towards a business-driven SD-WAN – Ascend partners with Silver Peak
Nuernberg, February 2020 – Artificial intelligence is on everyone’s lips and is also revolutionizing the way corporate networks work. In order to expand its portfolio in a modern way and to cover the complete field of SD-WAN intelligently, the Nuremberg-based network specialist Ascend is now entering into a partnership with the market-leading SD-WAN manufacturer Silver Peak®.
Silver Peak is the world’s leading provider of business-driven SD-WAN solutions for cloud-first enterprises. The Silver Peak Unity EdgeConnect™ self-driving wide area network platform offers enterprises a modern alternative to legacy router-centric WAN approaches, enabling them to derive maximum value from their investments in cloud applications and services.
Advantages of a business-driven SD-WAN
Conventional router-centric WANs significantly limit the possibilities that the internet offers companies. Shifting to a business-first networking model supports business operations and its applications and thus enables organizations to achieve a multiplier effect on their investments in cloud applications and services.
The Unity EdgeConnect™ SD-WAN edge platform continuously adapts to changing network conditions to deliver the highest quality of experience to application users. EdgeConnect is centrally managed using Unity Orchestrator ™ and provides IT organizations with complete control of the WAN.
EdgeConnect is also the industry’s only SD-WAN edge platform to unify SD-WAN, firewall, segmentation, routing, WAN optimization and application visibility and control in a single centrally managed system.
Delivered as physical, virtual or cloud-based appliances, EdgeConnect provides cloud-first enterprises with the flexibility to use any combination of transport- MPLS, broadband, 4G LTE– and bond multiple links into virtual overlays, giving every application the resources needed to deliver the highest quality of experience to users.
We look forward to hearing from you!
