Juniper Application Acceleration WXC series
Product DescriptionThe Juniper Networks® WXC Series Application Acceleration Platforms, members of a larger family of WAN optimization solutions from Juniper Networks, provide distributed enterprises with a cost-effective solution for accelerating mission-critical business applications, as well as voice, video and terminal services, over wide-area networks, maximizing WAN investments and improving application response times for branch office users.
The WXC Series improves application performance over the WAN by recognizing and eliminating redundant transmissions, accelerating TCP and application-specific protocols, prioritizing and allocating access to bandwidth, and ensuring high application availability at sites with multiple WAN links. On-board hard drives that provide the foundation for the Network Sequence Caching feature enables the WXC Series to store particularly large data patterns over long periods of time, allowing the devices to identify and remove repetitive traffic separated by gigabytes of data or last seen days or even weeks earlier, producing up to a 100-fold increase in effective WAN capacity.
The TCP-, application- and protocol-specific acceleration features help overcome the impacts of latency, dramatically improving response times for remote and branch-office users accessing centralized applications over the WAN. Quality of service (QoS) and bandwidth management tools allow IT to prioritize application traffic, ensuring mission-critical transactions always have sufficient bandwidth while preventing less important applications from consuming an inordinate amount of valuable WAN resources.
The WXC Series Application Acceleration Platforms coupled with WX Central Management System delivers:
