A lot of my customers, and especially the networking professionals get frustrated when they hear their business counterparts come to them and talk about how they should just move straight to Internet as a connectivity for all their locations.

But, when you are having conversations with different parts of the world, and you are having language barriers, and trying to understand that customers, understand your partners or your peers out there and having the phone calls been dropping packets, or long delays between conversations, will make a huge dramatic difference in the business and the relationships within the business itself.

The problem with the public Internet is that it’s unpredictable, and at the end of the day, ultimately there is no control over the middle mile.

I think the global internet is evolving all the time, so it’s sort of a wild wild west without a special governing body.

Essentially, the further away you are, the worst you are going to perform. Just as a nature of what the public Internet is.

ANDRE KINDNESS:

Using internet is not a bad thing for applications, but then we start to think about the bigger scheme of things, where global companies are looking at Internet and leveraging it.

Services can be congested, depends how you manage the routes. Mission critical business applications such as Salesforce, such as VoIP requires strong traffic management capability.

DAVID NUTI:
VP of Business Development, Strategic Account at Aryaka Networks

Aryaka has taken the best of breed of networking, connectivity reliability, application acceleration, optimization, content delivery and married it into a single platform and made it available on demand to the enterprise. We are doing in days what used to take months to do over old legacy infrastructure, but the best part is that the economies of scale play to the customers benefit on Aryaka and at the same time they are also getting a better performing network, included in the service. Internet is not an option anymore.

But north of 98% of our customers use their internet connectivity at the last mile to on and off ramp to our platform from just a handful of milliseconds away and from that point forward they are on a completely private network that eliminates the internet from the long haul transport.
