Riverbed’s SteelHead WAN Optimisation solution reduces time taken to access mission critical applications and bring cost savings to law firm.




  • Poor application performance during deployment of centralised document management system


  • Riverbed’s SteelHead WAN Optimisation technology
  • Riverbed SteelCentral Controller for SteelHead
  • Riverbed Virtual Services Platform (VSP)
  • Riverbed SteelHead Mobile


  • Caching servers removed
  • 7x reduction in bandwidth utilisation resulting in bandwidth upgrade delay for at least 3 years
  • VSP enabled serverless branch offices


Not only have we seen a great return on investment with Riverbed but we’ve also been able to delay a bandwidth upgrade for more than three years, and delivered dramatic application performance improvements. This has made the decision to invest in Riverbed the right decision
