Silver Peak signs distribution agreement with BigTec Pacific to target distributed enterprise customers across ANZ with SD-WAN solutions

Targeting escalating demand for high performance Silver Peak Unity EdgeConnect Software-Defined (SD)-WAN solutions throughout ANZ

SYDNEY, November 3, 2016 — Silver Peak, the global leader in broadband and hybrid wide area network (WAN) solutions, today announced a distribution agreement with data centre transformation VAD BigTec Pacific to address the escalating demand for high-performance Silver Peak Unity EdgeConnect Software-Defined (SD)-WAN solutions throughout Australia and New Zealand. “We are delighted to partner with BigTec as their technical know-how, experience and marketing services are so highly regarded across the region,” said Graham Schultz, Silver Peak sales director for ANZ.

“With such an effective, innovative distribution partner alongside, we are confident we can address the escalating customer requirements for Silver Peak SD-WAN solutions. These provide secure and reliable virtual overlays to connect users to applications - with the flexibility to use any combination of underlying transport technologies, without compromising network or application performance.”

“Interest in Silver Peak EdgeConnect SD-WAN solutions is red hot, and we are confident that our new distribution agreement will ensure the success that such market-disruptive technology merits”, said Mark Ransom, National Sales and Operations Manager at BigTec. “We look forward to partnering with Silver Peak to expand their go-to-market initiatives and SD-WAN footprint across Australia and New Zealand.”

Jonathan Odria, sales director at Exclusive Networks and BigTec, added: “The very purpose of our BigTec business is to help local reseller partners take full advantage of infrastructure opportunities that facilitate the new breed of web-scale applications and address the necessities of dynamic scaling, orchestration and management within a next generation software-defined data centre (SDDC). Silver Peak’s SD-WAN solutions are an important part of, and fit perfectly into, that environment.”

Gartner, a leading industry analyst firm, predicts that by the end of 2019, 30 per cent of enterprises will use SD-WAN products in all their branches, up from less than one per cent today. With EdgeConnect, Silver Peak provides partners and their customers with a solution to rapidly and non-disruptively augment or replace their MPLS networks with any form of broadband connectivity.

EdgeConnect provides unprecedented levels of performance, including broadband quality of service (QoS), as well as visibility into both legacy and cloud applications.

With the Silver Peak SD-WAN solution, IT organisations gain the unique ability to centrally assign and maintain compliance with business intent policies and secure and control all WAN traffic over any source of connectivity. The solution improves end-user satisfaction with consistent and significantly enhanced application performance.

By filling this market gap, EdgeConnect enables partners to lower their customers’ connectivity, equipment and network administration costs by up to 90 per cent.

Silver Peak recently announced the launch of the company’s new Global Partner Program specifically designed to attract, educate and enable value-added channel partners such as Exclusive Networks to capitalise on burgeoning SD-WAN market opportunities.
