Actually, the same thing holds true for the communication pipelines that drive today’s electronic commerce and business-to-business communications. Virtually every organization relies on the Internet, WANs and MPLS networks to sell, communicate socially and share information within a corporate environment. But when these networks become saturated, and cannot handle the amount of users and applications running over them, they become slow and unreliable. We all know the dire results when this happens.
Networks have become so vital to our society and our economy that we can’t afford to have them under-perform. That’s why WAN optimization solutions were developed. Below are five key areas to look for WAN optimization to play an important role in keeping networks running quickly and reliably.
If you are responsible for managing your organization’s network infrastructure, and remote users — or worse, management — are calling in to complain because your network is slow or unreliable, choosing a WAN optimizer with these five key capabilities will help to ease your heavy load.
