WAN Optimization

WAN Optimization

Prove the value of your investment by delivering a successful WAN Optimization strategy with optimum results and business impact.

WAN Optimization challenges today

Proof of value

Most organizations have been utilizing WAN Optimization techniques to accelerate application delivery across the hybrid WAN for years.

Yet, more recently, they’ve begun to question its value and need a way to prove their investment is worthwhile.

Changing priorities

Many networking teams assume that WAN Optimization management is a case of ‘set and forget’. So long as the management console reports optimization levels that appear positive, they believe their solution must be performing well enough to negate the need for daily tuning.

However, in any complex, global network environment, user, data, and application priorities are changing every day. And so are new WAN Optimization features.

Outdated strategies

The optimization levels companies actually achieve often therefore relate to outdated strategies. But the issue of latency hasn’t gone away.

A global WAN Optimization strategy will fail unless the solution has constant attention from those qualified to know how to get the best out of it.
