IT consolidation creates performance problems for branch and mobile users. Consolidated IT, along with new demands from video, web applications, virtualization and recreational traffic creates network contention that leads to poor performance, and continually drives up bandwidth costs.
What is WAN Optimization? With a combination of appliances and/or software installed on your network, you can utilize protocol acceleration and data reduction technologies like caching and compression to remove problems with application protocols and dramatically reduce the amount of data sent over the WAN or Internet.
WAN Optimization allows you to:
- Accelerate end user performance and IT processes
- Reduce current and future bandwidth
- Consolidate infrastructure without perforamnce compromise
- Enable key inititiaves that drives IT innovation: video, web, virtualization, Internet, cloud and mobility
