Aryaka®, the leading WAN as-a-Service company, announced today that TMC, a global integrated media company, has namedAryaka ONE as a 2015 SDN Excellence Award winner, presented by TMCs INTERNET TELEPHONY magazineand SDN Zone.
Aryaka ONE (One Network for the Global Enterprise) is the worlds first and only global, private, optimized, secure, and on-demand network. Aryaka ONE serves as the foundation for Aryakas suite of network connectivity and application acceleration solutions, which are purpose-built for enterprise WAN connectivity and application acceleration needs, using Software Defined Networking principles on NFV-like hardware.
Were delighted that Aryaka ONE is recognized by TMC as an innovator in the Software Defined Networking space, said Ajit Gupta, Founder, President, and CEO of Aryaka. Ever since we were founded back in 2009, Aryaka has been invested in software-defined networking. We werent calling it SDN back then, but the principle was the same: move the intelligence off of hardware and into cloud-based software. That evolution allows enterprises to shift to a business-centric approach to networking that is far more agile, flexible, and scalable than legacy architectures allowed.
Compared to traditional network architectures that are slow to deploy and highly expensive to maintain, Aryaka ONE adds a layer of technology and intelligence to the enterprise WAN, making it far more reliable, resilient and agile.
Aryaka ONE has already helped global enterprises break down communications barriers, improving collaboration and boosting employee productivity, and this award further highlights its impact on the network solutions market, Gupta said.
To connect to Aryaka ONE, enterprise locations and remote users simply use business class Internet or Layer 2 links for first- and last-mile connectivity. Aryaka ONE enhancements turn those links into short, reliable on-ramps that connect users to a private fast lane that bypasses the congestion-plagued Internet middle-mile. Optimization and intelligence are built into the network itself, allowing enterprises to rapidly adapt to shifting business goals.
Recognizing leaders advancing SDN technologies, TMC is proud to announce Aryaka as a recipient of the 2015 SDN Excellence Award, said Rich Tehrani, CEO, TMC. Aryaka has demonstrated innovation and will help shape the face of the quickly evolving industry. It is our pleasure to honor Aryaka for their inspiring work.
