We attended the 2018 Network Computing Awards ceremony at the Radisson Blu Edwardian, London, and were delighted to come away with not one, but two prestigious awards; ‘Product of the Year’ for our industry leading Unity EdgeConnect SD-WAN solution and ‘Network Project of the Year’ for our customer deployment with Nuffield Health. The Network Computing Awards celebrate the best organizations and products in the networking and IT space and recognize the industry’s innovative and inspirational people and projects of 2018.
The awards serve as a reflection of our unwavering commitment to deliver the industry’s most advanced SD-WAN solution, empowering our more than 600 global customers to re-architect their conventional router-centric WAN architectures in favor of a centrally orchestrated application-driven WAN edge. The fact that these awards are voted for by our customers is proof in the pudding that our technology is delivering real business value – Nuffield Health serving as a prime customer example.”
Nuffield Health Awarded Network Project of the Year
As a widely-distributed organization, with two data centers and around 20,000 employees across more than 260 sites throughout the UK – including 31 hospitals, 111 fitness and wellbeing gyms, and 121 corporate fitness and wellbeing centers – Nuffield Health found that its legacy multiprotocol label switching (MPLS) WAN was struggling to connect its users to business-critical cloud-based applications. Since deploying the Silver Peak Unity EdgeConnect SD-WAN solution, Nuffield Health has reduced WAN traffic by up to 75 percent and seen a 4-6x increase in bandwidth.
The combination of having the only complete solution for the New WAN Edge and accelerating customer acquisition, we believe the coming year will further extend our position as the global leader in broadband and hybrid WAN solutions.
