Aryaka SmartServices Enables High Performance for Fuze Global Cloud Communications
A few weeks back, Fuze, a leader in the global cloud communications space, designated Aryaka as a certified SD-WAN partner. Both companies are leaders in their respective fields, with Aryaka a Gartner MQ visionary as well as being recognized as a Voice of the Customer, while Fuze is a Gartner MQ visionary and a Forrester Wave leader.
Building on our current deployments with the likes of Microsoft Teams, WebEx, Zoom, BlueJeans, RingCentral, and our recent 8×8 announcement, Fuze is another example of a leading UCaaS/CCaaS company wishing to partner with Aryaka based on our global performance and ease of deployment.
Fuze highlights some of the advantages they bring to the collaboration space, including:
- 10+ Years of Enterprise Experience – Proven and validated implementation methodologies
- Global and Regional Coverage with Predictable Costs – Unmetered calling to 110+ countries with 50+ carrier relationships, powering uptime in countries that represent 98% of the GDP
- Intelligent Cloud-first Architecture – Full-stack voice, video, messaging, and screen sharing, deployed with redundancy across the globe
- Intuitive Single Application Experience for Users and Admins – Start calling, chatting, meeting, sharing content, and managing call queues with a few simple clicks
As with other collaboration vendors, the Aryaka service recognizes and marks UCaaS traffic, steers it optimally and dynamically across internet access links and through its layer 2 backbone, minimizing packet loss and latency, and delivering an optimized user experience. Fuze clients leverage Aryaka’s QoS-driven and resilient SmartLink capabilities to connect to the closest Aryaka PoP. Traffic then traverses Aryaka’s SLA-driven backbone to the nearest Fuze peering point, bypassing the jitter, latency, and packet loss endemic to the public internet while also offering a high-available and integrated services offering to MPLS.
The map above depicts initial Aryaka PoP to Fuze peering, to be expanded over time. The left of the diagram depicts a Fuze user in Boston connecting via the low-latency SmartLink path to the Aryaka PoP in Newark. Traffic then traverses the Aryaka backbone to the Ashburn PoP, where it is then handed over to the Fuze servers. Fuze leverages both Aryaka Virtual Office (VO) capabilities as well as direct Layer 2 peering, one of the first SaaS applications so enabled.
Over a much longer distance than Boston to Ashburn, the graphs below speak to the performance of the Aryaka core, now looking at Amsterdam to Ashburn. Aryaka’s ability to accelerate the connection setup time also of course has a positive impact on the quality of the UCaaS user experience.
