This case study of a S&P 500 electronics company is based on a February 2021 survey of Aryaka Networks customers by TechValidate, a 3rd-party research service. The profiled company asked to have their name blinded to protect their confidentiality.

Aryaka has enabled our Engineering workforce to effectively and efficiently work remotely and connect into a central pool of compute resources. It has also greatly improved network performance and connectivity reliability in China.

Aside from the technical benefits, Aryaka’s ability to monitor our network health and work directly with our ISP providers has significantly reduced the amount of time we spend on troubleshooting ISP-related issues.

Not only have we experienced great support from Aryaka customer support, but also from our account team.

The Challenge

Prior to deploying Aryaka, the surveyed company was experiencing the following issues with their costly MPLS network:

  • Application performance issues
  • Unreliable connectivity to China
  • Inability to adopt new technologies
  • Slow deployment times for new sites
Use Case

The key features and functionalities of Aryaka Networks that the surveyed
company uses:

  • Aryaka has helped them:
    • Enable digital transformation initiatives
    • Improve application performance/Accelerate applications
    • Enable multi-cloud connectivity
    • Enable or improve connectivity to China
    • Replace or augment existing MPLS network
    • Enable a hybrid workplace

After deploying Aryaka SmartServices, the surveyed company achieved the
following results:

  • Stable, reliable connectivity for end-users globally, including China-based
  • Faster application performance for end-users

Additionally, by adopting an SD-WAN solution, the company gained the ability to adopt emerging technologies as well as cloud-based and/or SaaS applications, accelerate digital transformation projects and enjoy quicker deployment timelines for new sites.

Finally, the company’s IT organization saved both valuable time and resources
by adopting a managed solution:

  • Saved an estimated 10-25% of IT resources’ time since deploying Aryaka, allowing the IT organization to focus on other priorities and evolve into more strategic partners to the business
  • Decreased network TCO by decreasing hardware costs and time spent on incident resolution
