Breweries of Cameroon Toast to Silver Peak WAN Optimization

Silver Peak Future-Proofs Optimization for All SABC Applications across Africa

PARIS, Calif., Jan. 11, 2012 — The Breweries of Cameroon (SABC), a leading food supplier in Cameroon and subsidiary of the French group Castel, has deployed Silver Peak Systems to optimize its wide area network (WAN) and improve the performance of its critical applications.  SABC selected Silver Peak data center class WAN optimization for the company’s unique network-layer optimization capabilities that improve the performance of all traffic and applications, including SABC’s Lawson M3 ERP, Lotus Notes, and IP telephony.

“Silver Peak’s WAN optimization is a perfect fit for our environment as it increases network capacity by almost 80%, optimizes the quality of our bandwidth, and gives us new levels of visibility into network and application performance,” said Jean-Michel Rubinelli with SABC.  “Silver Peak’s unique network approach optimizes all of our traffic, making the solution easy to deploy and flexible enough to accommodate future application demands.”

SABC’s WAN optimization needs were met by Diademys , Silver Peak’s first integrator of IT solutions to be Gold certified in France.  After analyzing the WAN requirements of SABC, Diademys worked with SABC to deploy a mix of Silver Peak NX-1000 appliances at the company’s remote sites, and NX-3000 appliances at the data centers.  The Silver Peak Global Management System (GMS) was selected to assist Diademys and SABC with several phases of the deployment and ensure a fast rollout with consistent policy configuration across all 32 locations.  The Silver Peak GMS also provides granular monitoring of network and application behavior on the WAN, and is an ideal platform for performing routine maintenance functions such as scheduled backups, automatic software updates, and other vital device management.

“Breweries of Cameroon is a perfect example of how Silver Peak cost-effectively solves WAN optimization needs across large, distributed enterprises,” said Mike Betz, vice president of Europe, the Middle East, and Africa (EMEA) for Silver Peak.  “As we continue to expand our global presence into key markets like Africa, Silver Peak is pleased to be working with industry leaders like SABC to support their most strategic IT initiatives.”
