Silver Peak, a provider in broadband and hybrid WAN solutions, and TPx Communications, the managed services carrier, have entered a strategic long-term global agreement that adds the Unity EdgeConnect SD-WAN solution to TPx’s Managed SD-WAN delivery platform.

EdgeConnect provides TPx with the ability to serve multi-location enterprises with international scope, delivering a range of tiered managed SD-WAN services architected to efficiently connect users to applications and overcome traditional WAN performance challenges.

TPx evaluated multiple SD-WAN vendors and products as it sought to expand the set of offerings it brings to its enterprise customers with demanding requirements. The carrier was looking to build upon its SD-WAN expertise and leadership by adding a proven industry leader able to offer solutions for multi-national enterprises with sophisticated use cases and deployments of 50 or more sites. After rigorous evaluation, TPx selected Silver Peak to provide a key building block of its SD-WAN strategy, including international expansion.

As enterprises embrace the cloud, IT leaders are quickly realising the limits of conventional router-centric WAN architectures. TPx is leading the way forward with a simpler and more efficient application-driven WAN architecture. Together with Silver Peak, TPx will now offer tiered managed SD-WAN services as part of its Managed SD-WAN Delivery Platform to support the support the following sophisticated enterprise use cases:

“We look forward to continuing our success in leveraging SD-WAN to help businesses grow and compete, with Silver Peak playing a role supporting our Managed SD-WAN Delivery Platform,” said Jared Martin, vice president, TPx Communications. “Together with Silver Peak, we’ll alleviate WAN deployment headaches like multiple provider footprints, complex routing protocols, skyrocketing expenses and limited connectivity and redundancy. Now we can bring customers tiered managed SD-WAN services that offer cloud-delivered, guaranteed performance that maintains seamless connectedness for our enterprise clients with evolving global needs.”

“Innovative service provider partners like TPx are leading the way forward in enabling domestic, multi-national and global enterprises to move beyond the cost, complexity and inefficiency of conventional router-centric WAN architectures to fully embrace the cloud with a managed application-driven WAN edge,” said Shayne Stubbs, vice president of service provider and cloud for Silver Peak. “With the advanced features and capabilities of EdgeConnect, TPx can confidently deliver a robust set of tiered managed SD-WAN services that provide enterprises with flexible services to address both their core and advanced network requirements on demand.”
