ATLANTA, Feb. 21, 2017 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- EarthLink Holdings Corp. (NASDAQ:ELNK) today announced the company is experiencing growing momentum in the marketplace with EarthLink SD-WAN, which launched in September 2016. To date, 41 customers across 1,706 locations have implemented EarthLink’s software-defined wide area network (SD-WAN), a cloud-delivered network service that makes it easy for businesses to optimize their network to enhance customer experiences. 95% of these customers have opted for EarthLink SD-WAN Concierge™, which demonstrates customers’ growing interest in EarthLink’s fully-managed services built on personalized and proactive expert guidance.   

EarthLink’s clients require a strong network backbone to support engaging customer experiences and multi-location connectivity including industry leaders in Entertainment (672 locations), Restaurant (203 locations), and Building Materials (153 locations).   

“The rapid adoption of our SD-WAN network services clearly demonstrates the growing demand for intelligent, high performance networks that optimize the cloud and hybrid infrastructure  and affirms customers’confidence in EarthLink,” said Joe Eazor, Chief Executive Officer and President of EarthLink. “Our unique SD-WAN network services combine our strengths in network technology, client service and deep industry expertise to offer businesses a new approach to network management that enables our clients to deliver more value to their customers.”
