TCP Acceleration & WAN Optimisation
WAN Optimisation technology ensures the best use of existing infrastructure and the underlying network to allow applications to fully utilise the available bandwidth.
Applications operating across international links or cellular services often under perform by using only a proportion of the available bandwidth. WAN Optimisation addresses this issue by decoupling the application from the physical network limitations that cause the poor performance.
To unlock the benefits of WAN Optimisation there must be visibility on the underlying TCP and UDP traffic, as the appropriate management of the different protocols is essential. Similarly, if more than one network service is used, the WAN Optimisation algorithms must treat the characteristics of each network independently.
