Infovista and EarthLink Partner on Application Performance Visibility and Control over the Hybrid WAN

EarthLink leverages Infovista’s application performance guarantee solutions to help enterprise IT improve customer experience and network ROI

PARIS, France and HERNDON, Virginia – October 20, 2015 – Infovista, the leading provider of network performance orchestration solutions for a better connected and collaborative world, today announced a partnership with EarthLink (NASDAQ: ELNK), a leading managed network, security and cloud solutions provider. EarthLink is leveraging Ipanema, Infovista’s application performance guarantee solution, to monitor and control WAN traffic and application performance as part of its recently announced Application Performance Optimization service portfolio. 

The new managed network service offering will enable EarthLink to better control, manage and guarantee the performance of business critical applications over enterprise customers’ WAN infrastructure, while helping them reduce their telecom costs. Like other EarthLink solutions, EarthLink Application Performance Optimization is available via the myLink® customer portal, providing customizable real-time dashboards for monitoring, troubleshooting and setting alarms and the ability to view quality of service score per location for jitter, latency, and packet loss.

A combination of increased business applications and new enterprise digitalization challenges has made it difficult for businesses to guarantee consistent network performance. As an example, in the retail industry alone, 78 percent of organizations are unable to guarantee application performance, meaning employee productivity and the customer experience could suffer as a result. Infovista and EarthLink’s partnership solves this problem, enabling enterprises to gain insight into how their bandwidth is being utilized and optimize application performance based on real network conditions, resulting in a more effective management of today’s increasingly complex IT environments. Equipped with reliable application performance, companies reap the benefits of increased productivity, customer acquisition and sales revenue, as well as an overall improvement on their bottom line.
