Constant change

I&O teams are constantly adding or upgrading applications, operating systems, and security devices, and are often modifying the network infrastructure, moving to cloud services, opening new offices, and adding new users.


Inconsistent performance

But what many don’t realize is that, even the smallest changes to the network or applications can impact the performance of a WAN Optimization environment.


Missed improvements

Sometimes it’s just not practical to keep a check on WAN Optimization performance metrics. But taking a ‘set and forget’ approach could mean you’re missing out on the opportunity for global WAN Optimization improvements.

Some teams are taking a different approach.

They know that their organization will continue to see optimum value from its WAN Optimization deployment, regardless of daily change.

About the WAN Optimization Audit

To carry out the WAN Optimization Audit, a certified Teneo engineer will review your Riverbed SteelHead WAN Optimization environment during a remote consultation and review a checklist of pre-determined items.

You’ll also have the chance to ask our engineer any burning questions you have about your WAN Optimization technology.

We’ll then document the results from the remote consultation and provide you with a report of our findings. The report conclusion will include our recommendation for any subsequent Professional Service work we feel could help you with WAN Optimization tuning, configuration, or problem remediation.
