EchoFirst Chooses Aryaka Over MPLS for Fast, Affordable VoIP Deployment

Maker of Revolutionary Solar Energy System Seamlessly Connects California Headquarters With Customer Care Teams in India

MILPITAS, CA -- (Marketwired) -- 05/29/14 -- Aryaka® (www.aryaka.com), the leading provider of WAN Optimization as-a-Service™, Network as-a-Service™, Application Delivery as-a-Service™ and Cloud Network as-a-Service™, today announced that EchoFirst, a manufacturer of next generation hybrid solar panels which produce electricity, hot water, home heating and cooling, selected Aryaka for seamless VoIP calls across oceans and speedy file transfers.

EchoFirst (now a part of SunEdison) is the creator of Echo, a revolutionary new solar energy system that delivers twice the energy of a basic solar electric system. The company reviewed solutions to connect their Fremont, California headquarters with their call center in Mumbai, India. As a startup, EchoFirst wanted to ensure smooth connectivity while protecting their precious capital to support their core business of making energy systems.

"We found a lot of issues with VoIP -- data packet loss, latency, echo and the quality of voice. MPLS would take 2-3 months to implement and the cost was something we did not want to take on," said Sasan Vossoughi, IT Director, EchoFirst. "Since going live with Aryaka, we haven't had any issues and the data packet exchange rates have been good. Also, with Aryaka, we basically avoided the cost and the long implementation time associated with MPLS. It's quite an impressive solution, and we've been very happy."

Aryaka benefits to EchoFirst include:

  • QoS for dedicated VoIP bandwidth

  • Speed of deployment -- minutes versus months with MPLS

  • Volume reduction for CIFS (28%) and HTTP (54%)

  • 3X bandwidth increase for SSH

Aryaka's solution for VoIP provides the insights needed to prevent network delays that can impact VoIP calls. Aryaka's Quality of Service (QoS) provides control over application layer performance and optimization with five classes of services and the ability to weight, prioritize and reserve bandwidth by application. Aryaka's backbone redundancy provides superior performance and availability for VoIP traffic. In addition, Aryaka can establish and enforce service levels for quality and availability, address latency and throughput issues, jitter and packet loss before they impact end users.
