Follow us on LinkedIn – Applications such as email, workflow automation, virtual desktops, and productivity enhancing solutions represent critical elements that influence survival and growth of organizations. Companies are therefore emphasizing on delivering the same to all employees, including those at branch offices and remote locations. Increasing dependence on Wide Area Network (WAN) for delivering and accessing these applications is bringing bandwidth under the crunch.
When bandwidth becomes an issue, application delivery and performance turns challenging for organizations. As a result, WAN Optimization has emerged as a critical part of network management as it helps organizations manage flow of data traffic across WAN and accelerate network performance in a manner that allows employees to connect and run a range of applications seamlessly over WAN as efficiently as can be done on a LAN. In addition to enhancing throughput and scalability of bandwidth and network, WAN optimization also helps organizations manage and accelerate application performance over WAN by reducing the risk of latency for most critical applications. Against this backdrop, WAN optimization solutions such as WAN optimization appliances and WAN optimization controllers (WOCs) are witnessing increased market adoption.
WOCs are typically focused on improving response time of mission critical applications and can address application performance issues created by latency and bandwidth challenges. WOC deployment also eliminates the need for costly bandwidth upgrades. By managing and prioritizing bandwidth delivery to mission critical applications, WAN optimization controllers helps organizations cut down expensive investments on new network bandwidth purchases. WOC is available in the market both as customer premise equipment and as software. As customer premise equipment (CPE) or a virtual appliance, a WOC is connected to WAN routers on LAN side. As a software application, WOC can also be integrated into customer devices such as routers and/or servers.
WAN acceleration controllers, on the other hand, are deployed at branch offices or data centres for enhancing network and application performance. The controllers employ optimization techniques like compression, shaping traffic, caching, and protocol acceleration to improve performance.
Expansion in branch office operations and subsequent rise in WAN deployments, and rise in number of remote users, which necessitate transfer of data or applications between multiple LANs will continue to drive demand for WAN optimization controllers in the coming years. Demand for WAN optimization controllers is strong among large organizations with geographically dispersed, media savvy, empowered, and mobile employees.
As stated by the new market research report on WAN Optimization Controllers, the United States represents the largest regional market worldwide. Asia-Pacific is forecast to emerge as the fastest growing market with a CAGR of 10.3% over the analysis period. Growth in the region is driven by strong economic development, increasing entrepreneurship and a parallel rise in business activity, rising investments in cutting edge enterprise IT technologies, mushrooming of small businesses, increase in mobile workforce and the subsequent need for establishing 24/7 communications between enterprises and employees in remote/branch offices.
