SANTA CLARA, Calif., May 30, 2017 – Silver Peak, the global leader in broadband and hybrid WAN solutions, today announced a partnership with Hyundai HCN Co., Ltd. to deliver a new managed SD-WAN service based on Silver Peak Unity EdgeConnectSP and Unity Boost to business customers and service providers across South Korea. The new managed SD-WAN service expands Hyundai HCN’s residential consumer broadband and content services with a new business practice focused on attracting enterprise and service provider clients, making it the first service provider to offer a managed SD-WAN service to the South Korean business market.
Hyundai HCN will offer the new managed SD-WAN service directly to new business clients or as a turnkey offering to other service providers seeking to offer expanded services to their business clientele across the greater South Korean market.
Hyundai HCN and Silver Peak will work with global partner Weston-Comstor to offer fulfilment and integration services of the underlying Silver Peak EdgeConnectSP SD-WAN solution along with complementary security products from technology partner, Palo Alto Networks - enabling new business clients to quickly and easily deploy and consume managed network services that deliver the performance, security and service agility required by geographically distributed enterprises.
After evaluating a range of competitive SD-WAN offerings, Hyundai HCN selected Silver Peak EdgeConnectSP based on the maturity of the solution, the breadth of production deployments with more than 400 global customers and counting, and its easy-to-consume advanced security services and simple and scalable pricing and consumption models. An additional advantage of the Silver Peak SD-WAN solution is that it enables service providers such as Hyundai HCN to offer tiered managed SD-WAN services, including SLA-based performance for on-premise and cloud-hosted applications. With the Unity OrchestratorSP multi-tenant orchestration, Hyundai HCN will also have the ability to centrally manage and optimize network and application performance for thousands of business customer deployments.
“We are excited to expand our business with a new practice focused on the significant untapped business market in South Korea,” said Andy Kim, head of enterprise business and sales, Hyundai HCN Co., Ltd. “Partnering with an industry leader in SD-WAN, Silver Peak, we are confident we can quickly deliver a new managed SD-WAN service to business customers seeking the flexibility to leverage any form of WAN connectivity, including broadband, to connect employees to applications with the performance users expect and their businesses demand.”
“We look forward to partnering with Hyundai HCN and Silver Peak to bring a new managed SD-WAN service to distributed enterprises across South Korea,” said Geun Woo Yang, Korean country manager, Weston-Comstor. “By providing fulfillment, integration and value-added services with our joint partners, including Palo Alto Networks, to enterprise customers, we are enabling them to realize the full performance, security and cost savings potential of an advanced SD-WAN solution.”
“We are delighted to serve as a foundational partner with Hyundai HCN as they establish a new business practice focused on enterprises and service providers across South Korea and the APAC region,” said Shayne Stubbs, vice president service provider and cloud, Silver Peak. “Having Weston-Comstor at the ready to provide turnkey fulfillment and integration services will enable joint enterprise customers to bring up new managed SD-WAN services with the ease, efficiency and effectiveness they require to drive their businesses forward.”
