Bajaj Electricals has deployed Aryaka’s SD-WAN to achieve better connectivity between global locations and better performance for real-time applications.
By associating with the SD-WAN provider, Bajaj Electricals, a leading electrical manufacturing company, aims to deliver improved network connectivity between its headquarters in Mumbai, India, and branch offices in China and Dubai.
Earlier, customers of Bajaj Electricals in China experienced performance issues while using Voice-over-IP (VoIP) and web-conferencing applications.
“We considered MPLS but chose Aryaka as it demonstrated significantly better and more stable performance during trials. Also, the fast deployment, top-notch customer support, and overall cost-effectiveness was a huge sell for us,” said G Sowmiyanarayanan, general manager of IT Infrastructure at Bajaj Electricals.
Benefits from Aryaka
# Elimination of disconnects during VoIP calls and web-conferencing sessions
# Up to 2X faster connection setup times
# Less than 2 percent packet loss for real-time traffic
# Deployment within days, not months
# 24×7 CCIE-level customer support
Bajaj Electricals, prior to deploying Aryaka, has faced frequent disconnects during VoIP and web-conferencing sessions, due to the company’s legacy Internet-based wide-area-network (WAN) connectivity and failed to meet quality expectations.
Aryaka has assisted Bajaj Electricals to enhance collaboration among its employees and their productivity.
MPLS solution is an expensive investment, especially in the Asia-Pacific region. In addition, the long deployment timelines of MPLS, which can run into several months, rendered the solution incapable of supporting the company’s business expansion initiatives.
Aryaka’s SD-WAN ensured faster and more reliable network connectivity between China and India offices of Bajaj Electricals which also gained from application performance improvements.
Aryaka said its enterprise solution combines a global private network, WAN Optimization, SD-WAN functionality, 24×7 CCIE-grade customer support, and network and application visibility, to deliver superior global network connectivity that can be deployed in only a few days.
Bajaj Electricals first selected Aryaka for China. Aryaka later installed the SD-WAN at Bajaj’s Dubai site within 24 hours of their ISP (Internet Service Provider) provisioning an Internet link.
“Aryaka’s SD-WAN is the best MPLS alternative in the global network connectivity space,” said Ashwath Nagaraj, founder and CTO, Aryaka Networks.
Bajaj Electricals, founded in 1938, has 19 branch offices in India, a chain of 600 distributors, 3000 authorized dealers, over 250,000 retail outlets and over 230 service franchises spread across the country.
Aryaka’s services have over 10 million users across more than 4,500 sites. Leading brands such as Skullcandy, Air China, and ThoughtWorks, as well as partners such as Microsoft Azure, AWS, Intelisys, and SK Broadband, have chosen Aryaka for their networking needs.
