No More Communication Delays with WAN Optimization

January 3, 2018

As your business grows, you may want to take it to the next level by doing expansion, whether locally or internationally. Expansion is the most common strategy for business to grab more opportunities, but with many branches present after the expansion, maintaining good communication becomes a challenge, especially when involving a big amount of data.

A  WAN (Wide Area Network) can be utilized so that communications across boundaries can run smoothly. Freshfields Bruckhaus Deringer, a leading international law firm with more than 2,400 lawyers across the world, has deployed WAN to ease their operations. However, deploying WAN can result in a complex data flow, which in turn prolongs access to critical applications and information.  That is when a WAN optimizer emerges.

WAN optimizer is a technology and technique used to maximize the efficiency of data flow across a WAN to accelerate the speed of access to critical applications and information. The technology could also provide more reliable and faster data recovery due to easier remote backup of data, and increase network response time capabilities, which regain access to critical applications after a crash. Moreover, WAN optimization allows application consolidation that can drastically reduce the cost of equipment and software and also bandwidth expenses.

Deploying WAN optimization has real tangible benefits for companies. Thus, it is not surprising that a 2017 survey by MarketsandMarkets predicted that the network optimization market, which includes WAN optimization, would reach $9.08 billion in 2022 from $4.78 Billion in 2017 at a Compound Annual Growth Rate (CAGR) of 13.7%. Increasing adoption of WAN optimization and local network optimization by Small and Medium-sized Enterprises (SMEs) is expected to drive the growth.

Opening branches across regions is one of the goals of majority companies. To ensure operations across branches WAN optimization is a good solution to be implemented with your IT partner. As one of the largest IT solutions partners in Indonesia, CTI Group has a proven track record in helping companies like yours to have the best network system to improve your business communication and process.
