Silver Peak, Ciena Tackle Enterprise SD-WAN Deployments

December 19, 2019 / Tobias Mann

Silver Peak and Ciena announced a team up that will pair the SD-WAN vendor’s software platform on the optical giant’s universal consumer premises equipment (uCPE). That combo is aimed at developing new service delivery models for communications service providers (CSPs) and greater flexibility for global enterprise customers. Silver Peak’s Unity EdgeConnect software combines SD-WAN, routing, segmentation, and WAN optimization into a single NFV instance that will run on Ciena’s 3906 and 3926 uCPE platforms. Those platforms have, respectively, been optimized for 1-gigabit and 10-gigabit Ethernet connectivity.
