Easynet and Ipanema scoop Network Management Innovation award
Networking partners’ APM solution honoured at
2011 Global Telecoms Business Innovation Awards
London, 13 July 2011 – Easynet Global Services and Ipanema Technologies today announce their recent triumph in the Network Management Innovation category of the 2011 Global Telecoms Business Innovation Awards.
Recognised by judges for providing businesses with a clear and detailed view of their global networks since their launch in November 2010, the judges also highlighted that these solutions are a key factor, and are the best in this area, in enabling CIOs to gain efficiencies by ensuring that network consolidation and centralisation leads to an improved experience for end-users.
David Rowe, CEO, Easynet, said: “Our customers are very focussed on achieving more with less, by squeezing efficiencies from the network; consolidating IT infrastructure; and maximising application performance across the WAN to drive efficiencies within their own company and hence gain a significant competitive edge. Easynet and Ipanema work together to provide greater visibility into a company’s network so that we can play a crucial role in improving the end-user experience. This award clearly demonstrates that we are judged by our peers to be best in breed.”
Jean-Yves Leclerc, CEO, Ipanema Technologies, said: “This award is testament to the hard work of many individuals in both companies over the last year, and we are delighted that jointly with Easynet we have beaten such strong competition. We are committed to supporting our customers as they transform their WANs into a strategic asset that supports the complex demands of cloud computing, and guarantees efficient application performance.”
This suite of Application Performance products is ideal for global organisations looking to transition to the Cloud as it addresses the main issues found when the network gets loaded with more and more data. This enables companies to successfully minimise IT support costs as well as making standardisation easier to achieve. Easynet and Ipanema’s solution ensures the customer has full visibility of application traffic enabling them to offer internal application performance SLAs and plan for change. The solution also includes options to dynamically optimise the traffic flows ensuring that the user experience with each individual application experience meets the performance expectations.
As a result, the user experience is guaranteed, the business applications are accelerated, the hybrid network is unified, the costs are reduced, the WAN becomes coherent, predictable and aligned with business needs – driving higher levels of performance.
