WASS on MPLS architecture

Unanswered Question
Jun 6th, 2008


We are having MPLS WAN network cloud. Our all offices connects to service provider MPLS cloud. We need to have WASS device install / or operate between our two offices where we have huge data transfer going on contnously . We dont want to invest for this device for all locations. Is is possible to do it ? Installing WASS devices particularly on only two office ocations on our MPLS cloud.

Thanks in advance

Hi Subodh,

What you mention is possible and it's done a lot I'm sure. For traffic to be accelerated there must be a WAAS device at both locations. Sites that don't have a WAAS device will ignore the TCP option bit that the WAE's use to identify each other and traffic will run unoptimized.

If you have more questions on WAAS I suggest posting your questions to the Application Networking form. There are some very bright WAAS people over there.
