Opti-WAN from Black Box intelligently tweaks transmission control protocol (TCP) to provide optimal WAN throughput, resulting in 30-500% faster Web page displays.

Opti-WAN from Black Box (http://www.blackbox.com) intelligently tweaks transmission control protocol (TCP) to provide optimal WAN throughput, resulting in 30-500% faster Web page displays. It works without compression or caching. Three unique algorithms enable Opti-WAN to boost data speeds: FastStart™ accelerates TCP to compensate for delay-jitter, HyperBurst™ maximizes throughput by adjusting receiver windows, and FastTCP™ matches congestion levels by dynamically adjusting to data transfer rates.

Opti-WAN enhances speeds for anything that uses TCP/IP, including HTTP, HTTPS, streaming media, and FTP. It's suited to a wide range of applications, including dynamic Web site acceleration, content distribution acceleration, and desktop virtualization. Because Opti-WAN operates from the server side only, it's completely transparent
to end users and requires no client software or browser plug-ins.

"TCP was developed nearly 40 years ago. It simply cannot provide the maximum throughput to handle today's data needs," said Brian Kutchma, VP of Sales and Marketing for Black Box. "Our Opti-WAN WAN accelerator uses bandwidth more effectively by greatly enhancing the flow of TCP-based Internet traffic. More bandwidth is not always the answer to latency issues; using what you have more efficiently is a smarter approach. Our unique TCP algorithms help speed up Web sites dramatically, which results in significant productivity and efficiency gains for clients."
