Cisco Helps Businesses Improve Application Performance for Cloud Services, Virtual Desktops and Video with New WAN Optimization Appliances
Cisco Introduces a Set of WAAS WAN Optimization Appliances to Help Organizations Deliver Business Applications with a High-Quality Experience Across Corporate Networks
SAN JOSE, Calif. – October 5, 2011 – With the number of Internet-based applications expected to reach 1 million this decade, Cisco is focusing on helping its customers deliver more Web-based software applications and rich media content across networks at scale and with high quality to any user and device. To achieve this goal, the company today introduced the next generation of its Wide Area Application Services (WAAS) appliances - the Cisco family of WAN (wide area network) optimization solutions.
The new Cisco WAAS appliances help customers improve application performance and user experience for bandwidth-heavy applications such as virtual desktops, cloud services, video and mobile devices at branch locations. The new appliances also help organizations substantially improve application performance and user experience across their entire network infrastructure by providing up to five times the bandwidth and supporting up to three times the users than the previous generation.
As an example of the greater scalability of Cisco’s new WAN optimization line, a single new appliance can allow an organization of 150,000 employees to simultaneously use virtual desktops over Apple iPad or other tablets, while delivering the highest possible user experience to each one. A WAAS appliance can also reduce the time it takes to download a typical PowerPoint presentation to any tablet of any user in any branch office from 30 seconds to only one second, and also has the ability to simultaneously stream 400 high-definition videos to 150,000 employee devices.
These second-generation WAN optimization solutions improve IT efficiency and cut total cost of ownership by lowering an organization’s bandwidth usage and reducing the hardware required by 66 percent. They offer a consistent, flexible deployment model that avoids network redesigns and provides IT managers with greater visibility and manageability.

New Cisco WAAS Software
"Growing adoption of video, desktop virtualization and cloud often leads to application latency problems across wide area networks. Cisco WAAS improves application response times while reducing bandwidth consumption to enable enterprises to take advantage of new applications and rich media delivery without compromising employee productivity. The new Cisco WAAS appliances deliver the scale and simplified deployment to maintain user experience through these network-wide transitions. For rich media traffic such as video and virtualized desktops, the new WAAS solutions will improve throughput and performance by 2 to 3 times relative to current generation WAN optimization solutions."
"Today's enterprise networks are experiencing increased bandwidth-heavy applications such as video, virtual desktops and cloud services. The momentum behind this trend will only grow as cloud applications take center stage in the enterprise. WAN optimization and application delivery solutions like Cisco's WAAS appliances provide IT and network managers with a compelling solution that scales and improves application performance across the network."
