Multi-Line WAN Optimization
A single connection WAN is susceptible to failure, leading to non-availability to the network. If the single line connection is down, no matter how good your acceleration techniques are, the line will not start. A vital part of multi-line WAN Optimization is having multiple connections to the WAN and the ability to failover in case of a line outage. FatPipe technology allows multiple connections to the WAN and thus eliminates unavailability of the WAN due to single-line failure.
Dynamic Load Balancing on Multiple Lines
An essential component of multi-line WAN Optimization is Fatpipe's dynamic load balancing. FatPipe's dynamic load balancing allows the load to be distributed on a WAN connection per a variety of algorithms ranging form simple round-robin load balancing to complex load balancing that determines the least number of hops from start to destination.
Multiline Quality of Service
This will ensure that VoIP calls have priority and the bandwidth needed to be completed.
FatPipe data compression technology has the potential of compressing data by a factor of up to 8x.
FatPipe's de-duplication technology looks for duplicates of data in data sets and eliminates them. By doing so, data is not transmitted multiple times, reducing the load on the network.
By caching local copies of transmitted data, FatPipe technology reduces the strain on network resources. When changes are made to the original data transmitted, the system only sends the differences.
Dynamic TCP Congestion Control and Acceleration
TCP acceleration is one of the most important components of WAN Optimization. TCP/IP is sensitive to latency. Higher latency causes slower data transfer because TCP assumes the slow acknowledgement of transmitted data by destination is due to congestion and dials back the transmission speed. In networks that have significant latency, data transfer is slow, not because of congestion, but because TCP assumes issues are from congestion.
Several algorithms have been developed to minimize the effects of latency. These algorithms have been developed for various network conditions. Most WAN acceleration technology in the market that accelerates a single connection, assumes a static latency and applies a single algorithm. This is fixed, thus when conditions change, the algorithm may not be optimal.
On the other hand, Multiline WAN Optimization introduced by FatPipe Networks is very different. FatPipe has combined WAN redundancy, and acceleration into a single device, and as a result has a comprehensive solution. This solution ensures that the WAN is always up, loads evenly and most importantly, this technology applies WAN Acceleration algorithms to each line by session. The technology determines the conditions prevailing at the initiation of each session and applies the correct algorithm on each line. This is true multi-line WAN Optimization. The rest should be defined as line acceleration.
How FatPipe Prevents Network Downtime
- Redundant connections mitigate last-mile vulnerabilities
- Diverse access hardware prevents hardware-related outages
- Multiple paths keep applications up during network maintenance
- Freedom to choose routing architecture that work for your business
FatPipe SD-WAN can solve unplanned network downtime.
The growth of network complexity has produced many more potential points of degradation and failure.
