In just the fourth quarter of 2016 alone, InfoVista shipped the largest number of Ipanema appliances in its history, for a single quarter. Ipanema now supports an estimated 300,000 enterprise sites globally. Our momentum in 2016 was solid, and it's given us the foundation to continue growing and developing our software in 2017 and beyond.
In fact, our industry-leading Application-Aware SD-WAN solution has recently been updated, positioning Ipanema 9.1 as the perfect tool for SD-WAN deployment as the number of enterprises undergoing a digital transformation grows. Since 2002, we've shipped nearly 44,000 appliances, averaging 3000 units a year — a figure that's set to continue ballooning as we continue to enable digital enterprises to adapt to the Applications Era.
Over the next year, we expect to continue taking on new deployments new channel partners and accolades similar to our “Visionary” ranking in Gartner's 2016 “Magic Quadrant for WAN Optimization” — our sixth consecutive time earning this feat (Gartner, Inc. Magic Quadrant for WAN Optimization, Bjarne Munch, Neil Rickard, 16 May 2016).
What will drive this success is the suite of improved features and functions that make Ipanema 9.1 the stand-out SD-WAN solution for enterprises embracing a digital future. For instance, the software delivers a more granular view into application performance and user experience analytics, supported by statistics, filtering options and real-time plotting. This all leads to improved visualization that can help enable intelligent decision making, like the deployment of new or better business-critical applications that could improve internal collaboration, productivity, operational efficiency and customer experience
Along with helping enterprises intelligently monitor and grow their network capacity, Ipanema 9.1 also allows businesses to utilize a single screen for configuring global dynamic path selection rules for application performance profiles. This helps boost ease-of-use for business-critical apps, and also gives enterprise IT the ability to better define application SLAs and user experience policies with unprecedented ease.
In the end, this next iteration of Ipanema will drive improvement across the board in terms of consistent and positive user experience for important enterprise applications, including Skype for Business, Office 365, ERP, CRM, and other cloud-based apps.
