SD-WAN solution maintains peak performance during gruelling stress test
FYI, this story is more than a year old
Miercom, an independent network testing lab, has put Silver Peak’s Unity EdgeConnect SD-WAN solution to the test.
And not just any test – a series of grueling torture tests that included a real-world WAN transport congestion, brownout and blackout scenarios.
And Silver Peak’s Unity EdgeConnect excelled.
In each test scenario, real-time video streams were constantly monitored for interruptions and image artifacts and multiple scenarios were tested by injecting increasing levels of packet loss to simulate real-world WAN transport conditions across bonded links.
Key results from Miercom’s test include:
- The high availability link bonding policy continued to ensure connectivity during a blackout condition of an underlay
- Silver Peak high availability link bonding policy managed and adjusted to degrading link conditions and maintained application availability during a brownout condition
- Even if packets are dropped, bonded links in the high availability mode with forward error correction assured that no application data packets were lost over the connection
- Business intent overlays utilized tunnels, created by bonding multiple underlay links together to act as one, these overlays can perform micro-segmentation to apply security and QoS policies and to assist in meeting compliance requirements
The tests have been done, and the results are undeniable. Even under the most extreme packet-loss conditions, the tests show that Silver Peak’s SD-WAN solution addresses all underlying link performance issues to deliver a superior application experience.
Overall, Miercom’s tests prove that Silver Peak’s flagship SD-WAN solution is the best in class - a truly reliable solution built for maintaining network and application availability and performance – even in challenging, real-world network scenarios.
Where other organisations may claim the high-resiliency and performance of their solutions, Silver Peak Unity EdgeConnect has proved it – differentiating the company from all others in its league.
When deciding between SD-WAN vendor, Silver Peak’s Unity EdgeConnect makes the decision easy - it’s proven resiliency during these real-world tests eliminates any concerns of availability and performance you may have.
To get ahead, you need to get with the proven leader in SD-WAN solutions - Silver Peak.
