Global specialty packaging market leader chooses Aryaka over MPLS for improved collaboration
Aryaka®, the leading WAN as-a-Service company, announced today that Essel Propack (NSE: ESSELPACK), the world’s premier manufacturer of packaging materials and plastic tubes, has deployed Aryaka’s software-defined, optimized, private WAN as-a-service to achieve enterprise-grade, stable connectivity, and improve the quality of video-conferencing between their global branch offices.
Prior to deploying Aryaka, the company was facing network and application performance issues especially for real-time video traffic, between their offices in India, Egypt, Poland, China and United States. The legacy Internet-based architecture, which was in place previously, failed to meet quality expectations, resulting in frequent disconnects during video-conferencing calls. The leadership team relies heavily on these video-conferencing calls for collaboration, thus making it a serious concern. There was an imperative need to address the loss in productivity.
When Essel Propack’s IT team decided to trial Aryaka’s WAN as-a-service, they witnessed dramatic improvements in video quality on all locations. Aryaka’s cloud-delivered solution, which comes with industry-leading QoS capabilities, transports high-priority video traffic over an enterprise-grade, stable, multi-tenant private network based on globally-distributed Points of Presence (POPs). Support for industry-standard QoS protects real-time traffic, ensuring predictable performance.
As an added bonus, the Aryaka deployment was incredibly quick and agile, and the cloud-based subscription model was preferable to other legacy options that involved a vendor lock-in.
Essel Propack experienced the following benefits on deploying Aryaka:
- Elimination of disconnects during video-conferencing
- Over 10x faster TCP Connection set up
- Down to less than 2% packet loss for real-time traffic
- Industry-leading QoS capabilities
- Incredibly fast deployment timelines
- Truly world-class 24×7 support and expertise
“Our senior management team routinely uses video-conferencing facilities to collaborate with our globally dispersed workforce. Internet just did not cut it in terms of performance. Frequent disconnects on calls were frustrating,” said Prakash Dharmani, CIO at Essel Propack. “When we evaluated Aryaka’s solution, we were pleasantly surprised with the superior quality and stability of video over their network, along with the business-class connectivity Aryaka provided to all our sites. We were also impressed with the exceptional agility during installation and the responsiveness of Aryaka’s support team, something that we’ve never seen before with other WAN providers.”
