The Cisco Intelligent WAN (IWAN) solution provides design and implementation guidance for organizations looking to deploy wide area network (WAN) transport with a transport-independent design (TID), intelligent path control, application optimization, and secure encrypted communications between branch locations while reducing the operating cost of the WAN. IWAN takes full advantage of cost-effective transport services in order
to increase bandwidth capacity without compromising performance, reliability, or security of collaboration or
Driven by budget pressures and the growth of cloud-hosted applications, mobility, and bandwidth-hogging applications such as video, many IT organizations are actively considering direct Internet access (DIA) at their branches. DIA offers two compelling benefits: (1) it can substantially reduce operating costs by freeing up costly WAN bandwidth for mission-critical applications, and (2) it offers a better experience for users accessing applications hosted in the public cloud.
Getting the best user experience from your applications requires that you know what is on your WAN. Look for solutions that can identify applications passing over your WAN and allow you to prioritize your most mission-critical data and then optimize to save bandwidth.
The Cisco SD-WAN solution is a cloud-delivered overlay WAN architecture that enables digital and cloud transformation at enterprises. It significantly reduces WAN costs and time to deploy new services, and, builds a robust security architecture crucial for hybrid networks. Enterprises today face major user experience problems for SaaS applications on account of networking problems. The centralized Internet exit architecture is inefficient and results in poor SaaS performance. And branch sites are running out of capacity to handle Internet traffic which is a concern because more than 50% of branch traffic is destined to the cloud. More importantly there are many dynamic changes in Internet gateways and the SaaS hosting servers that lead to unpredictability in performance. The Cisco SD-WAN solution solves these problems by creating multiple Internet exit points, adding high bandwidth at branch locations, and dynamically steering around problems in real-time, resulting is an optimal SaaS

Does IT get a lot of questions from users these days? For starters, maybe they want to know why their applications don’t run faster, why they’re having downtime, why their favorite enhancements aren’t top priorities, on and on--why, why, why? Tough questions. You’d love to have the resources to give them positive answers. Of course, that would require beefing up bandwidth and modernizing the network architecture. But the truth is, your paltry budget barely keeps the lights on.
With the release of the new Windows Server 2008 R2 many IT professionals are plagued with questions about the new operating system and whether the upfront costs can really save organizations money in the end.
Today’s Wide Area Networks (WANs) are experiencing increased saturation with the deployment of bandwidth-intensive applications, increased numbers of users, and the need for reliable security transmissions. IT personnel responsible for these issues acknowledge the increased congestion and have strived to maintain high levels of network performance. At the same time, IT departments are tasked with the job of lowering the cost of network infrastructure and ongoing operations. Network administrators continually face the challenge of balancing the increased use of critical applications on the Internet, while eliminating downtime and congestion from affecting user quality and day-to-day business operations.
To achieve greater productivity, employees at headquarters, telecommuters, business partners and customers must all have unhindered access to critical applications. Any delay in delivering these applications can cause user productivity to suffer and adversely affect business profitability. WAN link controllers are an affordable solution for ensuring the optimum performance, reliable delivery and protection of applications. They optimize network bandwidth and ensure the delivery of critical applications. Download this white paper to learn how to achieve efficiencies and competitive advantages through the adoption of affordable, yet feature-rich WAN link controllers.

The cloud is impacting WAN architectures. IT leaders looking to use a cloud-based infrastructure and/or application services, especially high-bandwidth, real-time voice and video over Internet Protocol applications, should strategically locate communications hubs outside the enterprise data center.
This paper outlines the essential requirements for file sharing across a wide-area network (WAN), and briefly discusses the limitations of appliance-based WAN optimization when applied specifically to document collaboration. The paper uses a solution analysis to compare common business needs to required features, and explains how appliance-based optimization falls short of these needs. The paper then describes how Globalscape's software-only solution. (WAFS) provides file replication and collaboration across globally dispersed networks, securely and reliably, with the performance of local file sharing.

Wide areas networks (WANs) are essential to the majority of businesses, connecting remote locations and individuals back to centralized IT resources. But as the network is expected to handle more bandwidth intensive applications such as voice and video it is essential to ensure the WAN usage is well managed – eliminating unwanted traffic and accelerating business content.

How to effectively troubleshoot your VDI deployment Virtual desktop infrastructure has come a long way since the first steps were taken a decade ago to run desktop workloads in the data center.
While more pervasive today, VDI technologies are latency-sensitive, and wholly dependent on the network. Complaints of poor end-user experience persist, especially over the WAN at branch offices where bandwidth constraints and latency delays are common.
But there is a way to ensure consistent and reliable VDI performance to deliver:
