In order to enhance the functionality offered by our Smart Retail portfolio we are pleased to announce we have added Silver Peak as a partner. The Silver Peak Unity EdgeConnect™ SD-WAN edge platform is ideally suited to allow us to deliver high quality network and application performance across retail premises and business headquarters.
The focus is on connecting users and devices (like PoS) to applications using any combination of WAN transport (including MPLS, Internet, and 4G LTE). A key benefit is that the configuration and deployment is simplified since the EdgeConnect platform unifies core network functions including SD-WAN, firewall, routing and WAN optimization in a single system that is centrally managed with a single, graphical, management interface, Unity Orchestrator™. This ultimately allows us to lower the cost of our solution, while delivering the business agility our customers require to maintain a competitive edge.
“Retail businesses strive to operate at cloud speed to keep pace with increasing customer demand, however many are being held back by legacy router-centric networks,” said Kristian Thyregod, vice president of EMEA at Silver Peak. “With a business-first networking model, Silver Peak helps to empower retailers by ensuring business priorities are always reflected in the way the network behaves. JT Global’s experience in connecting retail businesses combined with the Silver Peak EdgeConnect SD-WAN edge platform, means the partnership is set to provide retailers with the highest quality of shopping experience, whether it’s online or in-store. Put simply, it will free retailers from bottoms-up technology constraints.”
