Join leading independent product assessment group, Miercom and technical experts from Silver Peak as they discuss the performance expectations of today’s networks and how the right SD-WAN solution can improve application availability across the WAN using any type of transport. They will disclose how Silver Peak’s SD-WAN solution, Unity EdgeConnect fared in their aggressive stress test environment and provide a live demo on its performance capabilities.
Modern business runs in the cloud. But traditional WAN routers weren’t made for that. Silver Peak Unity EdgeConnect is primed for the cloud. In fact, it’s the industry-leading SD-WAN solution that’s freeing businesses from their dependency on routers. Watch this video and meet Wayne - he loves everything from the '80s...except the technology.

Today’s cloud-connected enterprise demands a new WAN architecture, an SD-WAN, to meet the performance and security requirements for SaaS and IaaS. As SD-WAN technology evolves, new levels of automation, security and architectural simplification have emerged. First-packet application classification is an advanced capability that automatically steers trusted SaaS and web traffic directly to the internet and unknown or suspicious traffic to a next-generation firewall for additional security inspection.
Further advancements harness machine learning and AI to enable adaptive, application-centric traffic handling and pervasive security. With automation, machine learning, and AI, the Self-Driving WAN can be realized.
Strategic IT leaders are under pressure to balance the complexities of managing legacy infrastructure while accelerating the migration to the cloud which can compromise their effectiveness. Silver Peak offers a complete range of best-in-class hardware, software and cloud-based WAN solutions that provide secure and reliable virtual overlays to connect users to applications with the flexibility to use any combination of underlying transport without compromising application performance. This results in greater business agility and lower costs. Watch this video to see how your organization can leverage Silver Peak solutions.
The Interroll Group is a worldwide leading producer of high-quality key products and services for internal logistics. Interroll has deployed the Silver Peak Unity EdgeConnect SD-WAN solution to transition its WAN from MPLS to broadband, connecting 2,000+ global employees to applications around the world with the performance, security and cost efficiencies the business demands. The global firm manages its global WAN centrally, across 33 locations, using Unity Orchestrator, enabled by business intent overlays that classify applications in alignment with service level requirements, assuring continuous application performance and availability regardless of underlying network conditions. Unity Boost is applied to further accelerate application performance.
This is a demonstration of Silver Peak Dynamic Path Control capabilities as part of an SD-WAN deployment. We show a hybrid WAN environment with MPLS and Internet connectivity. Learn how different forms of traffic can be dynamically directed over each of the connections, and how Dynamic Path Control can load balance between the two links.
High-performance car maker Shelby American saves money and minimizes IT overhead by connecting employees to business applications with a high-performance Silver Peak Unity EdgeConnect SD-WAN solution. Deploying an IT infrastructure in a secure co-located data center connected with EdgeConnect delivers the performance users expect and the business demands. Performance, it’s the foundation of the business.
The WAN is evolving as applications move to the cloud and enterprises become frustrated with the high cost and complexity of MPLS. This animated video highlights the benefits of moving to an SD-WAN architecture that leverages broadband connectivity.
Not all SD-WANs are equal. Silver Peak Unity EdgeConnect SD-WAN solutions deliver broadband quality of service and give each business application the priority and performance it needs with the predictability that users expect. EdgeConnect SD-WAN solutions enable you to leverage broadband connectivity with the performance and reliability of private lines, while reducing connectivity and equipment costs by up to 90%. That’s the Silver Peak difference.
Combining a high-performance SD-WAN solution with routing, a stateful firewall and WAN optimization in a single “thin branch” solution liberates enterprises from the cost, complexity and headaches associated with legacy router-centric branch office infrastructure. In this webinar, learn how an application-driven SD-WAN simplifies the WAN edge architecture, delivers greater business agility and lowers costs.
Join us to hear how you can:
•Simplify the WAN edge infrastructure to reduce CAPEX and OPEX
•Streamline the management of branch WAN edge gear and transport services
•Make the transition to an SD-WAN without risk

SD-WANs enable enterprises to easily use multiple types of network services (MPLS, broadband, LTE) to simultaneously connect users to applications, quickly bring branch offices online and improve overall network and application performance.
But, finding the right SD-WAN solution for your business can take time. Many enterprises are looking towards managed SD-WAN as a solution to simplify branch network deployments and find the best fit for their business.
In this webinar, Frost & Sullivan analyst, Roopa Honnachari will share new industry data on managed SD-WAN and will host a discussion between Silver Peak and Masergy experts as they share insights on how managed services can enable enterprises to adopt SD-WAN in a seamless manner.

The Internet is notoriously insecure – we hear about security breaches nearly every day. Discover the multiple security features of a Silver Peak SD-WAN, architected to ensure that all traffic moving across broadband Internet is highly protected. Got compliance requirements? Learn how micro-segmentation using business intent overlays helps organizations meet compliance mandates.
This webinar will clear up a common misconception that SD-WANs obsolete the need for WAN optimization. All the bandwidth in the world doesn’t diminish physical distance and therefore the latency across long distances. WAN opt is all about improving application performance over distance and transporting large data sets efficiently. No longer is it necessary to have WAN opt deployed across the entire network – just selectively where and when you need it.
With the increasing use of SaaS and cloud-based apps, backhauling all internet-bound traffic from the branch to headquarters wastes bandwidth and degrades performance. Learn how first-packet application visibility enables intelligent breakout of trusted apps directly to the internet while still directing unknown or suspicious apps to corporate security services for further inspection.
