Optimize your WAN by overcoming transport and link capacity limitations
Source: Cisco Press
IT organizations face pressure to increase productivity, improve application performance, support global collaboration, improve data protection, and minimize costs. And in today's WAN-centered environments, traditional LAN-oriented infrastructure approaches are insufficient to meet these goals. Fortunately, WAN optimization, when combined with other acceleration techniques and network control capabilities, can help to enable a globally distributed workforce with a centralized IT infrastructure, all the while minimizing the impact to the existing network and mitigating costly capacity upgrades.
In this chapter download from Application Acceleration and WAN Optimization Fundamentals, examine how WAN optimization capabilities can overcome performance barriers created by WAN conditions. Learn application-agnostic techniques for improving application performance and efficiency over the WAN through integration at the transport layer. Chapter coverage includes compression, data suppression, and transport protocol optimization.
