SmartCONNECT speeds up CAD/CAM applications:

  • File integrity is maintained by using Aryaka’s private network with built-in WAN optimization that limits packet loss.
  • Service prioritization, traffic shaping, and bandwidth reservation algorithms provide guaranteed bandwidth.
  • Intelligent last mile optimization delivers Quality of Service (QoS) to all locations, including those with poor quality Internet links
  • MyAryaka visibility portal offers real-time, granular insight to your services so you can optimize performance for

Manufacturing companies rely on CAD/CAM (Computer Aided Design/Manufacturing) applications such as Autodesk AutoCAD and DS Solidworks for collaboration between design, engineering, and project teams. The more globalized the company is, the more distributed teams become: an architectural firm in California might be working on designs for a building to be constructed in Germany. Meanwhile, specialty parts will need to be acquired from an office in China.

These design applications function acceptably when everyone is in close proximity, however as distance increases so does performance degradation. Having the right network that delivers fast application performance for every global location and does not corrupt the integrity of data by the time it reaches remote locations is paramount.

“If an end user needed to order parts and our data transfers were not current, we could commit to ordering something we didn’t actually have, and cause delays in being able to service our customers.”

Average response time for a 200MB 3D CAD model to travel from Shanghai to San Jose or Frankfurt range from 68 to 135 minutes. Transfer times of this length not only slow down end user performance, but result in significant productivity loss.
