SD-WAN solution maintains peak performance during gruelling stress test

04 Sep 17

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.
