Aryaka’s Global SD-WAN Awarded for Excellence by TMC Aug 2017

Solution helps modern global organizations overcome connectivity challenges due to MPLS

SAN MATEO, Calif., Aug. 02, 2017 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Aryaka® today announced it has been honored for its industry-leading global SD-WAN technology with the 2017 INTERNET TELEPHONY SDN Excellence Award from the Technology Marketing Corporation (TMC).

This is the third consecutive year that the integrated marketing and media company has recognized Aryaka’s global SD-WAN in its Software-Defined Networking (SDN) category. Aryaka’s solution was selected based on its exceptional end-to-end enterprise-grade connectivity, application acceleration, and network services to globally distributed enterprises.

“Multi-protocol label switching (MPLS) and Internet-based SD-WANs present today’s modern enterprises with a host of connectivity challenges,” said Gary Sevounts, Aryaka’s Chief Marketing Officer. “With 28 points of presence located within 30 milliseconds of 95 percent of the world’s business users, our global SD-WAN solution is changing the way organizations are doing business.”

Aryaka’s global SD-WAN combines a multi-tenant, private network with patented WAN optimization to guarantee latency, improve throughput and accelerate application performance. The world’s largest enterprises rely on Aryaka to accelerate their applications, while channel resellers like IT and telecom partners leverage the platform to increase their global footprint, decrease time-to-market, and offer competitive cloud and mobility solutions that drive more revenue.

“Aryaka’s dedication to advancing the connectivity needs of modern global enterprises continues to stand out,” said Rich Tehrani, CEO of TMC. “Users – and good businesses – demand fast and stable performance for not only mission-critical applications, but for all applications, anywhere in the world. Aryaka is helping set the pace for the evolution to tomorrow’s SD-WAN.”

This honor comes on the heels of Aryaka’s receipt of a Net Promoter Score (NPS) of 65, which is five times higher than the telecommunications industry average of 12.1. The outcome of the research highlights users’ frustrations with legacy technologies like MPLS.
