8x8 and Aryaka Partner to Enhance Cloud Communications for Global Enterprises

Strategic alliance will improve communications experience for business users worldwide

8x8, Inc. (NASDAQ:EGHT), the world’s first Communications Cloud provider, and Aryaka®, the leading global SD-WAN provider, today announced that they are entering a strategic partnership that will improve the performance and reliability of business-critical cloud unified communications. This will enable global mid-market and enterprise companies to enhance business communications, collaboration and customer engagement for their employees, customers and partners around the world.

Through this partnership, Aryaka’s global SD-WAN solution will provide enterprise-grade private connectivity to further enhance the superior voice and video quality delivered by the 8x8 Communications Cloud™. When tested against several leading Unified Communications as a Service (UCaaS) providers, 8x8 was recently found by the Tolly Group to deliver the highest voice quality across multiple client platforms and network impairment conditions. 8x8 was also recently named a Leader in the 2017 Gartner Magic Quadrant for Unified Communications as a Service, Worldwide1 for the sixth year in a row.

When 8x8 and Aryaka are deployed together, enterprise voice and video traffic is routed through Aryaka’s global private network instead of over the public Internet, thereby minimizing latencies, packet loss and jitter. As a result, organizations will benefit from increased employee productivity by reducing service interruptions and dropped calls.

“Our partnership with 8x8 enables enterprises to significantly enhance the performance of their voice and video communications globally regardless of changing network conditions,” said Shawn Farshchi, President and CEO of Aryaka. “This improves business execution and delivers the stable and high-quality experiences that employees, partners, and customers demand from communications, collaboration and customer engagement operations.”

“8x8 is committed to providing mid-market and enterprise companies with the highest levels of quality and reliability for cloud communications, collaboration and contact center services while simplifying service deployment and reducing costs,” said Mehdi Salour, Senior Vice President of Global Network and DevOps at 8x8. “The Aryaka partnership will enable us to further improve quality of service for voice, video and web conferencing, delivering a superior end-user experience for employees, partners and customers around the world, even in the face of adverse customer network conditions.”

Platform Specialty Products (PSP), a global, diversified producer of high technology specialty chemical products, has deployed 8x8-over-Aryaka to improve its UCaaS operations and provide high-quality communications and collaboration to its employees.
