WAN Optimisation

WAN optimisation is a collection of techniques for increasing data-transfer efficiencies across Wide Area Networks (such as your internet connection) or more efficiently utilising the existing network bandwidth.  This avoids the need to spend additional budget on extra bandwidth.


WAN optimisation includes:


  • Data and bandwidth compression
  • Elimination of transmission redundancy
  • Data prioritisation
  • Streamlining
  • Imposing Quality of Service (QoS)
  • Optimisation of protocols



WAN optimisation strategies can:


  • Accelerate performance
  • Facilitate high availability
  • Increase efficiencies and throughput levels
