30th Anniversary of Interop
Interop is celebrating its 30th anniversary with the kickoff of its conference in Las Vegas (May 2-6), and Aryaka is excited to be here. It gives us another chance to connect with our customers, partners, press, and analysts, and we’re looking forward to discussing new developments in our software defined network platform, which delivers high-performance network connectivity to global businesses.

Here’s What We’re Up to at Interop 2016:

Our SVP of Business Development, Product, and Alliances, Nikesh Kalra, co-presented with Venkat Kankipati, VP and Head of IT, Infrastructure, and Customer Engineering from AUGMEDIX on Wednesday, May 4. The two of them discussed how SD-WANs represented a fundamental shift in how networks are architected and managed.

Venkat outlined how AUGMEDIX enhanced performance for their Internet of Things based application by deploying Aryaka’s SMART CONNECT solution suite, leveraging Aryaka’s private global network as an alternative to the public Internet. He also discussed the tangible business outcomes that AUGMEDIX realized.
