SD-WAN update: Adaptiv Networks acquires LiveQoS

Cloud-native SD-WAN vendor Adaptiv Networks has acquired QoE vendor LiveQoS. Serving more than 250 customers across North America, Adaptiv Networks provides SD-WANs for the most challenging locations that require high availability for business-critical applications.

“Combining LiveQoS Internet acceleration technologies with Adaptiv Networks cloud-managed SD-WAN solutions will create more value for the Adaptiv Networks customers.” Salim Nensi, CEO of LiveQoS

The LiveQoS portfolio delivers a range of solutions that enable SaaS providers, computer and networking OEMs, and enterprise-class organisations to accelerate their Internet performance and to do so consistently. Its QoE assets will strengthen Adaptiv Networks’ offering for service-specific QoS/QoE improvement and edgeless SD-WAN – particularly for the demanding, real-time, and business critical applications that it targets. Such applications require high-quality, low-variability latency and bandwidth to deliver an acceptable performance and optimal user experience.
Adaptiv Networks is keen to point out that it gains more than just technology from the acquisition. “LiveQoS engineers are world class and we are delighted to have them join the Adaptiv Networks team,” said Bernard Breton, Adaptiv Networks’ CEO. “By strengthening our R&D capabilities and technological leadership, we will be able to jumpstart our aggressive growth plan to meet the accelerating opportunities in the global SD-WAN market.”
