Collectively, the Silver Peak SD-WAN solution offers the enhanced performance and features that complement the company’s global high-performance, hybrid network solutions.

The Masergy managed SD-WAN service enables enhanced network designs that drive application performance and security while enhancing price-performance optimization. Performance and data resiliency features include:

“Masergy is an innovative and forward-thinking service provider that enterprises should look toward as they evaluate and adopt SD-WAN solutions to address their rapidly evolving WAN requirements,” added David Hughes, founder and CEO of Silver Peak. “Masergy is leading the network services transformation by offering flexible and differentiated managed SD-WAN service that fully supports its long-term 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.
Masergy owns and operates the largest independent Software Defined Platform in the world, delivering hybrid networking, managed security and cloud communication solutions to global enterprises. Our patented technology, customizable solutions and unmatched customer experience are why a growing number of leading organizations rely on Masergy to deliver performance beyond expectations.
