Silver Peak Ships NX-700 to Extend Low-Cost WAN Optimization to the Branch

New Platform is Smallest and Quietest of Silver Peak WAN Optimization Portfolio

SANTA CLARA, Calif., Dec. 10, 2014 – Silver Peak today announced the NX-700, a new low-cost, small form-factor WAN optimization platform for connecting the smallest of branch offices with data center and cloud applications.

The Silver Peak NX-700 is designed to optimize 2 megabits-per-second (Mbps) of WAN capacity in a form factor the size of a paperback novel.  The NX-700 is the physical equivalent to Silver Peak’s VX-500 virtual appliance, which also supports 2 Mbps of WAN bandwidth and 8,000 simultaneous connections. For smaller locations without existing virtual infrastructure, the NX-700 provides a plug-and-play physical option for extending WAN optimization to the branch.

“A major challenge for distributed enterprises is providing remote users with consistent application performance and reliability,” said Damon Ennis, SVP of products for Silver Peak. “With the NX-700, IT organizations can easily optimize branch connectivity with minimal space requirements. The Silver Peak NX-700 accelerates file transfers, improves communication quality, and with Silver Peak Dynamic Path Control, can deliver responsive access to cloud services without having to backhaul traffic through a central data center.”

Silver Peak delivers the industry's broadest portfolio of physical and virtual WAN optimization solutions. The products are sized for the smallest of branch offices to the world's largest data centers, supporting up to 10 gigabits-per-second (Gbps) of WAN capacity and 512,000 simultaneous flows. While the Silver Peak NX-700 is small and low-cost, it provides all of the same functionality of Silver Peak’s larger appliances for overcoming network bandwidth, distance and quality challenges when moving data over distance.

The Silver Peak NX-700 can be used to build out a Silver Peak Unity WAN fabric, which unifies the enterprise WAN with the Internet and public cloud. Unity gives IT the ability to monitor and control connectivity to the cloud while ensuring consistent performance for every enterprise and SaaS application. With Dynamic Path Control in the appliances, customers can maximize the use of Internet connectivity in the branch to spend less on branch office bandwidth.

The Silver Peak NX-700 is available for ordering today through Silver Peak’s global network of resale partners. List pricing for the NX-700 is $1,995.
