Source: F5 Networks
Graef, Anhalt, Schloemer & Associates GASAI's great success had led to rapid growth and a subsequent strain on the company's Wide Area Network (WAN). All applications are housed in the central Milwaukie, Wisconsin, data center, with all Internet traffic routed over T1 lines through a Milwaukie-based proxy server. The GASAI IT staff realized that it had two options for improving its WAN bandwidth: purchase application acceleration appliances or increase the bandwidth in each branch office. In the end, the company selected the F5 WANJet WAN optimization appliance because of its core TDR and TCP optimization feature set and price.
