MINNEAPOLIS, MN--(Marketwire - Oct 3, 2012) - Ecessa Corporation, a pioneer in WAN optimization and business continuity products for small and medium-sized companies, announced today that it will launch its new WANoptimization-as-a-Service (WaaS)™ -- WaaSWorlD™ -- at ITEXPO West, October 2-5, 2012, at the Austin Convention Center. The company will feature WaaSWorlD in booth #1008.

WaaSWorlD redefines WAN optimization by servicing SMBs beyond the traditional goal of online applications acceleration -- providing real-time visibility into Internet traffic, usage, congestion and connectivity. In addition, WaaSWorlD's monitoring capabilities provide automatic notifications, as well as data collection and analytics, enabling constant improvements in overall WAN performance.

"Like large enterprises, small and mid-sized companies are challenged when it comes to keeping up with and managing their Internet traffic. These companies view WAN infrastructure reliability and performance as critical to their long-term success," said Ron Thomas, CEO of Ecessa. "With WaaSWorlD, Ecessa has leveled the playing field, bringing optimal WAN performance capabilities to any size company, at an affordable cost."

WaaSWorlD is a subscription-based service available via a channel of VoIP providers, managed service providers (MSPs) and value-added resellers (VARs). End-users pay an affordable monthly fee, eliminating the high costs of upfront appliance purchases. Interested VoIP providers, MSPs and VARs can apply to become a WaaSWorlD Partner here.

"Ecessa's new service-based model dovetails perfectly into SymQuest's Managed Services practice," said Mark Jennings, director of virtual CIO services. "We definitely plan to evaluate the prospect of adding this dimension to our existing partnership with Ecessa."

Benefits to end-users include: unique visibility into all aspects of network performance via automatic monitoring and reporting capabilities; automatic traffic management, ensuring uptime of > 99.999 percent; bandwidth allocation to critical business applications; seamless failover of voice, video and data applications, moving from poorly performing or downed paths to healthy WANs; much more.

"WaaSWorlD is the result of Ecessa's nearly 45-year commitment to bringing sophisticated yet affordable networking and telecom solutions to the small and mid-markets," added Thomas.

Ecessa's award-winning family of WAN link controllers -- PowerLink, ShieldLink and ClariLink -- are cost-effective network devices that create a virtual WAN environment that delivers affordable, reliable and optimized Internet connectivity.
