Ipanema Technologies, the leading provider of Application Performance Guarantee solutions over the WAN, today announces the latest version of its Autonomic Networking System (ANS), ANS 8, providing increased visibility and control for Microsoft Lync, Microsoft Office 365 and Google Apps.

“As enterprises adopt more cloud based, peer-to-peer and demanding applications, a more sophisticated approach to guaranteeing the performance of those applications is needed”, said Béatrice Piquer-Durand, VP Marketing of Ipanema Technologies. She continued, “With this release, through an integrated platform our customers can ensure each and every user of Microsoft Lync, Microsoft Office 365 or Google Apps sub-feature whether it be video-conferencing, voice, email, screen or file sharing, will receive expected quality of service for an excellent user experience.”

With this release of the Ipanema ANS version 8, enterprises can regain control of application usages and ensure adoption for Microsoft Lync (on-premise and on-line), Google Apps or Microsoft Office 365 thanks to a unique integrated platform that:

- Guarantees the performance of each and every individual critical application flow,
- Dynamically adapts to the real usage and conditions of the network such as congestion, quality of MPLS or Internet, number of employees and evolution of usage,
- Differentiates, prioritizes and delivers granular visibility for Microsoft Lync, Microsoft Office 365 and Google Apps sub-features according to their business criticality,
- Manages inbound internet traffic to protect critical SaaS applications from recreational Web traffic,
- Delivers ‘Zero touch’ installation of our appliances in branch-offices, and automatically updates network topology by self-learning new network subnets.

Owing to these new functionalities, enterprises can:

- Quickly and successfully migrate legacy applications to the cloud, using Internet local breakout as the shortest path,
- Deliver excellent end-user experience for voice, video calls and SaaS applications,
- Easily identify and manage business and recreational traffic over MPLS and Internet, ensuring business applications will be served first and protected,
- Understand the usage and performance for each sub-feature of Microsoft Lync, Microsoft Office 365 and Google Apps and communicate clear dashboards to the business units.

ANS 8 also reduces Ipanema partners’ cost of operations by simplifying on-site installation, reducing deployment & in-life operations workloads by around 50 per cent, cutting time to service enablement and avoiding configuration errors.

“Microsoft Lync, Microsoft Office 365 and Google Apps significantly increase pressure on the WAN and vastly complicate IT infrastructure”, said Béatrice Piquer-Durand. “In order to take full advantage of all the expected benefits of their application investment, from cost reduction, productivity increase to ease of management, IT organizations need to ensure widespread user adoption by ensuring their performance and end-user experience over MPLS and the Internet, prioritizing them over hungry and non-critical apps.”
