There are a billion reasons (okay, I may be exaggerating but you get my point) why you should choose Cisco WAAS as THE WAN optimization solution for your company. But today, I want to emphasize the following three:
#1. Not your ordinary WAN optimization
With Cisco WAAS, you’re not just getting WAN optimization but much more. WAAS is integrated into the industry leading branch routers – the ISRs – and this means the capabilities are not only limited to WAN optimization and application acceleration but to security, application visibility, QoS and much more. The Cisco Intelligent WAN is an entire package along with WAAS to provide an uncompromised user experience over any connection. Regardless of the type of connection that particular branch has, WAAS can reduce bandwidth usage and accelerate applications working alongside with Intelligent Path Control, Transport Independence, and Security.

In the second part of my blog series I want to cover one of the main concerns that Services Providers are facing as they explore moving to NFV and that is performance and scalability. Common concerns I hear center around latency, throughput, queuing capabilities and security. These are valid concerns since SP’s have service level agreement (SLA’s) with the their customers which lead to penalties if performance drops below the SLA. So will a virtualized network function perform at the same level as a purpose built networking device? Read More »
