Silver Peak Eyes Strong SD-WAN Market Potential in Thailand

Expands and Extends Global Partnership Agreement with Westcon Group Inc.;
Targets Managed Service Provider Customers
THAILAND, December 2, 2016Silver Peak, the global leader in broadband and hybrid WAN solutions, today announced that more distributed enterprises and service providers across Thailand are evaluating Silver Peak Software-Defined WAN (SD-WAN) solutions to address the evolving organisational WAN requirement to connect employees to business applications whether they reside in the data center or in the cloud. The company also announced the global expansion of its partnership agreement with Westcon Group Inc. to target and enable service providers to deliver managed SD-WAN services to customers across the Asian market and beyond.
Silver Peak SD-WAN solutions help enterprises and service providers to flexibly and securely connect users to applications via the most cost-effective source of connectivity available, without compromising network or application performance, while reducing complexity and lowering WAN costs.  

Today in Thailand, many geographically distributed businesses with branch offices and data centers continue to rely on costly and complex Multiprotocol Label Switching (MPLS) connectivity to connect employees to applications. With the Silver Peak EdgeConnect SD-WAN solution, enterprises can now augment or replace MPLS networks with secure Internet connectivity at their own pace. They can move to a broadband SD-WAN solution whether site-by-site or deploy a hybrid WAN approach that combines MPLS and broadband Internet connectivity.
“Thailand is a fast-growing emerging market for Silver Peak in Asia. Globally, Silver Peak already has more than 230 new SD-WAN customers amongst the 2000+ enterprises that deploy our high-performance WAN solutions. We are confident about our market expansion and growth as enterprises and service providers are rapidly migrating key business applications to the cloud. We are the only vendor to offer a complete SD-WAN solution that provides unmatched performance, visibility and security, as well as the potential to reduce costs by up to 90 percent,” said Tricia Png, regional director of ASEAN, Silver Peak.
Silver Peak is fast emerging as the global leader in SD-WAN solutions, an emerging market that IDC predicts will reach $6 billion by 2020. For a large diverse country like Thailand, Silver Peak offers a great bridge to the cloud; a high-quality, low-cost solution to geographically distributed enterprises looking toward regional or overseas expansion,” said Shayne Stubbs, vice president of service provider and Cloud.

Silver Peak and Westcon Group Inc. Expand Global Partnership
To address the growing demand for SD-WAN solutions, Silver Peak has expanded its global partnership with Westcon Group Inc., a value-added technology distributor of category-leading security, collaboration, networking and data center solutions. The agreement enables service providers to expand into areas that were once not possible – access to Silver Peak SD-WAN solutions and global coverage from Westcon Group Inc. and for the first time serve their global customers in 172 countries with a single contract and supplier.
“Global enterprises constantly face the challenge of high costs and complexity getting WAN services as they are forced to work with many carriers to secure access outside of a carrier’s region. With the Silver Peak EdgeConnect high-performance SD-WAN solution, delivered by our global service providers, coupled by the support from Westcon, we are able to simplify network procurement, support and reduce costs for global enterprises, enabling service providers to deliver managed SD-WAN services in alignment with the Service Level Agreements (SLAs) that customers expect,” said Shayne Stubbs, vice president of service provider and Cloud. “Our collaboration with Westcon will serve as a key enabler to our global service providers looking to take full advantage of the potential future revenue from managed SD-WAN services.”
