Real-time communications for enterprises can be tough. Using the best-efforts Internet often results in a poor experience and user frustration. There’s latency, inefficient bandwidth usage, and packet loss – all of which could impact an important meeting with a customer, partner, or just between teams. This experience can be frustrating and counter-productive. With globally distributed locations, the challenge becomes magnified even more.
Aryaka’s SmartConnect SD-WAN as a Service delivers predictable application performance for Cisco WebEx, offering enhanced productivity and improved collaboration for enterprises with distributed locations. SmartConnect is a turnkey solution that uses Aryaka’s software-defined, Layer 2 global private network with built-in WAN optimization. This gives your business-critical applications predictable performance and a consistent user experience without the need for MPLS.
Quality collaboration sessions using a private network with built-in WAN optimization to minimize jitter, latency, and packet loss.
QoS for real-time communications: service prioritization, traffic shaping, and bandwidth reservation algorithms.
Enterprise-grade connectivity to 8×8 data centers, through a private network eliminating service interruptions and dropped calls.
Reliable UCaaS performance
Intelligent last mile optimization ensures Quality of Service to all locations, including those with poor-quality Internet links.
SmartConnect also comes with a virtual cloud gateway where local POPs, within close proximity to SaaS clouds, can act as a client to those services. So if your Cisco WebEx is hosted in San Jose and you have users in Asia, their experience would be much like they were on a corporate LAN connected directly to WebEx Cloud. The Aryaka POP in San Jose essentially acts as a local client to the WebEx cloud and the global private network would accelerate the application using WAN optimization, providing LAN-speed access. With Aryaka’s Global SD-WAN, you get predictable performance for all your SaaS and IaaS from anywhere across the world.
