This BELTUG paper on WAN Optimization introduces the reader to the merits of this increasingly important technology. It outlines the key drivers behind the emergence of this technology, how it works, who the main players
in the market are, and offers some guidelines for potential buyers/users of this technology.
The paper is based on the conclusions formulated at the BELTUG X‐change on WAN Optimization held on the 11th of December 2008 and a review of
several white papers published by vendors in the market (see references).
To understand WAN optimization, one needs to understand that the network today is not about transporting data; it is about delivering applications across
multiple sites and locations. WAN Optimization, therefore, is not simply concerned with optimizing data transfer—it is concerned with the effective
delivery of applications to a distributed enterprise.
