Share Article

Exinda Networks, a leading provider of wide area network (WAN) optimization solutions, today introduced its new Exinda 1710 appliance that boosts application performance for branch office employees accessing data center applications. The Exinda 1710 is the newest edition to Exinda’s x700 product family which classifies and prioritizes Web-based applications, provides monitoring and reporting at Layer 7 and provides control over recreational Internet traffic. The appliance helps companies make more efficient use of their Internet connections between branch offices and the data center and delays expensive bandwidth upgrades. Furthermore, it helps keep branch office employees productive by minimizing the time waiting for applications to respond.

The Exinda 1710 is ideally suited for the small office, home office (SOHO) environment accommodating up to 30 end users. The Exinda 1710 runs Exinda's new v5.0 firmware, which simplifies the installation process to 12 easy steps. The appliance can optimize and monitor up to 8,000 concurrent network traffic flows at either two or 10 Mbps. It also stores up to two weeks of network monitoring data on the appliance which can be used to fine tune network policies to further improve application performance. Longer term reports are available via Exinda's Service Delivery Point, industry's first software-as-a-service for centrally managing WAN optimization appliances distributed throughout the corporate WAN. The appliance's Ethernet bypass feature ensures network reliability. In the rare event that the appliance would fail, network traffic would not be blocked but would continue to pass through the appliance.

The appliance provides quality of service to prioritize applications and reserve bandwidth for critical applications such as Citrix sessions and voice over IP. It also has Exinda's distinctive ability to detect and control recreational Internet traffic, such as encrypted BitTorrent and Limewire, which can negatively impact not only branch office employees but all employees served by shared Internet service provider links.

"Most small branch office employees are connected to data center applications via low bandwidth or lower quality links," said Con Nikolouzakis, chief executive officer of Exinda Networks. "As a result, users suffer the worst delays of time waiting at screen. The Exinda 1710 provides an affordable, easy way around this problem. It's a simple solution that has a positive and instant impact with improved application performance and network traffic control."

Exinda's WAN optimization appliances have one of the industry's most advanced network monitoring capabilities to help IT staffs make informed decisions and gain a complete picture on how network bandwidth is being consumed. Application visibility is helpful for both network problem resolution and for capacity planning. The appliances also provide detailed application response measurement that helps the IT staff to know if application performance is degrading or improving.

General Availability

The Exinda 1710 appliance will be generally available as of June 16, 2008. For more information, visit the Exinda x700 products Web page.
