WANworX™ Technology Honored for Innovation

MINNEAPOLIS, Minn.—April 18, 2014— Ecessa Corporation announced today that TMC, a global, integrated media company, has named WANworX™ as a 2014 Excellence in SDN Award winner presented by TMC’s INTERNET TELEPHONY Magazine and SDN Zone.

“Extending our networking technology development to SDN is a natural fit,” stated Ron Thomas, CEO of Ecessa. “We’re thrilled to be recognized with this award by TMC, INTERNET TELEPHONY Magazine and SDN Zone.”

Ecessa’s next-generation WANworX™ enterprise services deliver coordinated orchestration by creating a  WAN fabric of multiple connections (both public and private) and applying SDN-like network intelligence, thereby allowing applications to move seamlessly from one WAN layer to another, real-time. The technology takes intentional advantage of best performing, least disruptive (latency, packet loss, jitter) links/layers to give optimal Application Performance Predictability and Never Down™ Seamless Uptime end-to-end. All of which results in significant ROI.

“Recognizing leaders advancing SDN technologies, TMC is proud to announce Ecessa as a recipient of the annual Excellence in SDN Award,” said Rich Tehrani, CEO, TMC. “WANworX has demonstrated innovation and will help shape the face of the quickly evolving industry. It is our pleasure to honor Ecessa for their inspiring work.”

SDN architecture has already had a profound impact on the IT and Telecom industries and, as this technology continues to grow in popularity, the Excellence in SDN Awards recognizes the companies that are leading the way in SDN architecture and applications.

Winners of the Excellence in SDN Award are published in the May 2014 issue of INTERNET TELEPHONY Magazine.
