Although modern TCP stacks have become much more efficient at dealing with latency by adding TCP Window Scaling and selective acknowledgements, they are still acutely vulnerable to packet loss.
Packet loss is the Achilles heel of modern WANs and can have a dramatically negative effect on network performance.
Wanos Networks WAN optimization software is delivering impressive results and has been demonstrated to increase network throughput by up to ten fold in the field.
Antonie Henning MD of Wanos Networks had this to say about the critical importance of tackling the issue of packet loss:
“Packet loss can have a dramatic effect on network performance and it’s something we’ve set out to address with our Wanos software based WAN Optimization solutions.
WAN Optimization reduces network costs and accelerates network speeds through compression, byte-caching and related techniques.
Our solutions can be installed on dedicated physical appliances or can be quickly integrated by running the WAN Optimizer, as a virtual machine, on most popular hypervisors.
We specialize in packet loss recovery and our solutions have delivered dramatic improvements for our happy clients.
Apart from the disastrous effect packet loss can have on network performance, there are other considerations that feed into the packet loss discussion.
More and more businesses are connecting their offices using low cost virtual private networks. VPN links typically have a packet loss in the region of 1% which is 10 times higher than MPLS links and that’s a problem.
When it comes to SLA’s, many provide a false sense of security. A 3% loss for an hour per day means that providers can still meet a very low average monthly loss rate. However, the effect on your business can be dramatic.
Add to the mix that packet loss in emerging countries can be as much as 2% or more and you can clearly see that addressing packet loss is critical in delivering acceptable throughput on business networks.
Optimum network throughput is our mission in life and that’s precisely what we deliver for our customers.”
Wanos Networks are flexible and have a pricing plan that can be tailored to any business’s needs.
They even have a free option (Wanos Express) that smaller organizations can take advantage of to get their feet wet and test drive the product.
