speeding up WAN

hi experts,

we have 2 sites connected via BGP on a 10mb bandwidth link. both end can give 18ms average when ping.

On our side, is there a way to speed this up? or like LAN? What's a effective and practical way of doing this?

tnx

Re: speeding up WAN

Hello Robert,

you should compare and consider the following options:

- a link speed upgrade

- deploying a solution that uses WAN accelerators like WAAS

for WAAS see

the performance gains you can get with WAAS depend on actual traffic patterns in your company.

Hope to help

Re: speeding up WAN

As Giuseppe describes, WAAS(/WAFS) technology is the way to try to mimic LAN performance across a WAN. However, with 10 Mbps to work with and 18 ms latency, you might be able to improve user perceived performance via QoS. I.e. a QoS configuration that keeps interactive/transactional traffic from being adversely impacted by bandwidth demanding traffic.
