In today’s interconnected world, organisations heavily rely on wide area networks (WANs) to connect their centralised data centres with remote locations. However, the performance of applications operating across international links or cellular services often falls short of expectations, utilising only a fraction of the available bandwidth. Livewire Digital, a leader in innovative networking solutions, offers a game-changing technology called WAN Optimisation, which addresses this issue and unleashes the full potential of your network infrastructure.
WAN Optimisation, also known as WAN acceleration, is a suite of technologies and techniques designed to enhance the efficiency of data transfer over WANs. Livewire Digital’s RazorLink Smart Networking solution takes WAN Optimisation to new heights, providing a unique and comprehensive approach to Wide Area Networks. Whether you’re utilising cellular networks, satellite connections, or international links, RazorLink empowers your applications to fully utilise the available bandwidth, ensuring optimal performance and user experience.
To achieve the benefits of WAN Optimisation, it is crucial to have visibility into the underlying TCP and UDP traffic. Livewire Digital’s RazorLink solution enables seamless management of different protocols, ensuring that each network’s characteristics are treated independently. Whether you’re leveraging a single network service or a combination of services, RazorLink’s advanced algorithms adapt and optimise based on the specific requirements of each network.
One of the key advantages of RazorLink is its ability to create a true Hybrid WAN by combining multiple network services. This unique feature provides additional bandwidth and failover capabilities, giving your organisation unprecedented flexibility and reliability. Moreover, RazorLink ensures the security of your data by encrypting it regardless of the route the traffic takes. With Livewire Digital’s solution, you can confidently transmit sensitive information without compromising confidentiality.
RazorLink is a software-defined networking (SDN) solution that offers unparalleled flexibility in deployment. Whether you prefer a traditional hardware router, a virtualised environment, or embedded integration with system firmware, RazorLink can seamlessly integrate into your existing infrastructure. It can be installed on Mac or PC, providing a user-friendly experience and simplifying the implementation process. Furthermore, the counterpart can be run on dedicated hardware or virtualised on private or public cloud services, catering to your specific requirements.
WAN optimisation has been an integral part of enterprise wide area networking, improving data transfer efficiency and enhancing user experience. With the rise of software-defined WAN (SD-WAN), some may question the need for specific WAN optimisation appliances. However, Livewire Digital’s RazorLink Smart Networking demonstrates the ongoing importance of WAN optimisation in maximising network performance and reliability.
RazorLink leverages various optimisation techniques to overcome latency, minimise packet loss, and increase network throughput. These techniques include data caching, which stores frequently used information locally for faster access; data deduplication, which eliminates redundant copies of data to reduce WAN traffic; and data compression, which minimises bandwidth usage by shrinking data size. Additionally, RazorLink employs network monitoring to identify nonessential traffic, enabling prioritisation of critical applications. Protocol acceleration minimises the burden of chatty protocols on the WAN, while traffic shaping allows network administrators to prioritise applications and allocate bandwidth accordingly.
Livewire Digital’s RazorLink Smart Networking solution revolutionises WAN Optimisation, offering a comprehensive and flexible approach to network optimisation. By unlocking the full potential of your network infrastructure, RazorLink ensures optimal performance, enhanced user experience, and improved productivity for your organisation. Experience the power of Livewire Digital’s RazorLink and transform your WAN into a high-performing, efficient, and secure network.
