Since introducing EdgeConnect three years ago, Silver Peak innovation
has been shaped by working hand-in-hand with customers to shift from a
device-centric WAN model where the business is forced to conform to the
constraints of the network toward a business-first model where the
network empowers the business. The result, EdgeConnect is the industry's
most complete and advanced SD-WAN solution, automatically learning and
adapting to changing business requirements to assure the highest levels
of application performance and end user quality of experience.

J-U-B Engineers, Inc.

Headquartered in Boise, Idaho, J-U-B
is a leader in civil engineering, with a long list of
successful projects in transportation, water resources, land

Colorado. Additionally, subsidiary companies Gateway Mapping, Inc. and
The Langdon Group supplement J-U-B's expertise with world-class
Geographic Information Systems (GIS) services, and public involvement,
facilitation, mediation, and conflict management, respectively.

"Ultimately, we selected the Silver Peak Unity EdgeConnect SD-WAN
solution for its ability to meet the unique requirements of our
company," said Tory Adams, director of information technology at J-U-B
Engineers, Inc. "One of the things I appreciate about the EdgeConnect
solution is that you don't have to be a rocket scientist to configure
and operate it like a lot of competitive products. The gain in
application performance translates to a major time-saver for employees
and user complaints have all but gone away."

"Connecting branch employees securely and directly to the applications
that underpin our banking products and services is critical to achieving
our success criteria and reinforcing our pledge to delight customers,"
said Sean O'Mahoney senior vice president and managing director of
technology services at Republic Bank. "The Silver Peak Unity EdgeConnect
SD-WAN solution delivered the best performance, most functionality and
ease-of-management of the SD-WAN vendors we evaluated. With EdgeConnect,
we now have the flexibility to make full use of both our MPLS and
broadband connections, while assuring robust security and application
acceleration with integrated WAN optimization. This powerful combination
is enabling us to evolve beyond the cost and complexity of our
conventional ISRs with a centrally managed business-driven WAN edge."

and application performance and availability," said Rob Tuck, network
manager for SCA. "As we fully embrace the cloud, including Microsoft
Azure and Office 365, we needed an SD-WAN solution designed to
seamlessly connect our employees, across 61 branch locations, directly
to our IaaS and SaaS instances with the performance, security and ease
of management we required to maintain SLAs and provide a superior user
experience. The results have proven swift and compelling, EdgeConnect

pivotal role in enabling the practice to deliver critical oncology
