Gartner Recognizes Silver Peak as a Leader in Magic Quadrant for WAN Optimization
Silver Peak positioned furthest in completeness of vision
Singapore, May 26, 2016 — Silver Peak, the leader in building software-defined Wide Area Networks (SD-WANs), today announced its position as a Leader in Gartner’s May 2016 Magic Quadrant for WAN Optimization.
According to the report, Gartner now sees “enterprise network leaders moving their WAN strategies toward new WAN architectures” including, Hybrid WAN, SD-WAN and network function virtualization (NFV).
“We believe our being positioned furthest in completeness of vision for WAN Optimization is made possible by the strong WAN heritage Silver Peak has carried for the past decade.” said John Vincenzo, senior vice president and chief marketing officer of Silver Peak. “As demonstrated by our recent customer announcement, we’re quickly learning that all WAN solutions, particularly SD-WAN solutions, aren’t created equal. Performance matters and Silver Peak’s strength is improving application and network performance.”
Unlike other SD-WAN solutions that focus simply on allowing enterprises to leverage Internet connectivity, Silver Peak uniquely delivers a level of broadband quality of service that increases the performance, reliability and security customers expect from a private line. Additionally, Silver Peak offers an optional WAN optimization performance pack called Unity Boost that enables customers to reduce bandwidth requirements and deliver even higher levels of application performance over distance where and when they need it. With EdgeConnect as the foundation for an SD-WAN, enterprises can improve the resiliency of their WAN, dynamically balance traffic across multiple paths and increase application performance over any source of connectivity.
