Ipanema Technologies has announced its new ip|engine40, available in two forms: ip|engine40so and ip|engine40ax. This new device enables companies to guarantee the performance of applications like Unified Communications and ERP, use the latest social media and cloud tools, and have application visibility and control across 100Mbps branch networks. With this new device, branch offices of various sizes can manage the growing performance demands of today’s applications across a variety of network technologies.
The ip|engine40 can manage mid-sized branch offices. The ip|engine40so is designed for branch offices of up to 100 users, and the ip|engine40ax is designed for branch offices of up to 300 users. Slotting between Ipanema’s already-existing device portfolio, the new ip|engine40 ensures that offices of all size, with complex and large networks, can guarantee application performance.
“We see increasing demand from enterprises and our service provider partners to deploy 100Mbps networks to branch offices, often using a variety of technology including Ethernet. Even sites with very high capacity networks need centralised control. The ability to guarantee their application performance is essential if companies are to manage traffic according to their business needs,” said Matthieu Silbermann, Director of Product Marketing.
Ipanema is rolling out its ip|engine40 as a response to the growing need of branch offices to manage and control the performance of their applications even across sites with high bandwidth capacity.
“Around 10% of our customers have already deployed 100Mbps networks. In three years’ time, we expect this number to approach 50%. The ability to monitor, prioritise, and control applications remains critical to ensuring business productivity, and that remains true when networks themselves have high standard capacity,” said Béatrice Piquer-Durand, Ipanema’s VP of Marketing.
