SANTA CLARA, Calif. -- January 30, 2013

Global corporations often rely on voice-over-IP (VoIP) communications to
collaborate across distributed offices. Sumifru Corporation, a leading
provider of high quality fresh fruits throughout Asia Pacific and the Middle
East, uses VoIP to connect more than 20 offices throughout the Philippines.
However, the company experienced problems with call quality between its
offices, which was adversely impacting productivity. Sumifru deployed Silver
Peak wide area network (WAN) optimization software to cost-effectively improve
call quality and significantly improve overall bandwidth utilization.

VoIP applications are highly-sensitive to WAN traffic quality. This includes
and is not limited to network jitter, latency and packet loss. Silver Peak
Virtual Acceleration Open Architecture (VXOA) software employs a variety of
tools to ensure toll-grade voice quality over the WAN, including advanced
quality-of-service (QoS) techniques, forward error correction, and traffic
shaping. The Silver Peak VXOA software also improves jitter over congested
WANs, reducing it to less than 1 millisecond (ms) on average. This enables
enterprises to deliver optimal VoIP performance using Silver Peak software.

“Our business relies heavily on real-time communication between our production
and sales offices in Asia Pacific, but when we extended the distance of our
conferencing solution, call quality and productivity became unpredictable,”
said Paul Ambas, CIO for Sumifru. “We saw immediate and tangible results in
voice quality the minute our Silver Peak implementation was operational.”

Silver Peak has eliminated more than 90% of the Sumifru’s packet loss
problems. In addition, Silver Peak’s QoS ensured that Sumifru’s voice traffic
is prioritized to receive the appropriate amount of network resources needed
for optimal performance. The company also benefits from optimized POP and SMTP
traffic, where the bandwidth utilization has been improved 90%. Similarly,
Silver Peak VXOA software improved bandwidth utilization for dozens of other
applications by more than 30% in total.
