A better way forward with Teneo’s Co-Managed SD-WAN
Although general network support was previously outsourced, the opportunity arose to improve network infrastructure when the decision was made to insource this function.
This prompted research into SD-WAN with combined WAN Optimization to help solve Argenta’s global visibility, performance, and connectivity challenges.
In seeking an SD-WAN service partner, Argenta assessed both fully managed and co-managed solutions, as well as MPLS (Multiprotocol Label Switching).
In the case of MPLS, many service providers couldn’t offer sufficient bandwidth, and quotes didn’t offer best value. This is where Teneo came in.
Michael Meredith, Argenta UK & US IT Operations Manager, explained: “We identified that our team’s main requirement was for assistance with the implementation of an SD-WAN solution, and for support around general SD-WAN knowledge.”
“Following a recommendation from Silver Peak, we selected a Co-Managed SD-WAN Service from Teneo. This enabled us to not only learn the solution ourselves, but also to obtain the support we needed to ensure that it was operated consistently.”
