Witch WAN Solution Mitigates the Fright of Latency and Packet Loss? PORTrockIT.
In Shakespeare’s play Macbeth, the first of the three witches say: “When shall we three meet again? In thunder, lightning or in rain?” They all remark, “Fair is foul, and foul is fair: Hover through the fog and filthy air.” In many respects latency, packet loss and egress (bandwidth utilisation issues) suffer from these kinds of problems. Latency is the fog and the filthy, slowing down Wide Area Network (WAN) performance and reducing organisations’ ability to make full use of their available bandwidth.
They can all cause a ‘rainy day’; the lightning and the thunder are the detrimental impact that latency, packet loss and egress cause. For example, when disasters – manmade or natural – occur, organisations need to have the ability to back up and restore data rapidly. Poor WAN performance can put service continuity and disaster recovery at risk – leading to an inability to deliver services.
In some circumstances downtime or poor database synchronisation could cause regulatory compliance issues – such as a failure to comply with the European Union’s General Data Protection Regulations, and lead to an organisation being heavily fined. Poor WAN performance can render big data analysis inaccurate, leading to the lightning of poor decision-making and sub-optimal strategies as well as ineffective corporate strategies.
Quite often, with big data analysis, real-time data is required to make instant decisions or, in the cause of e-commerce, to make accurate predictions of what customers really, really want to buy. Slow network performance could even be life-threatening. Autonomous vehicles are a case in point, they need accurate data to make decisions themselves, and to be able to react to different circumstances and road conditions. For safety reasons, automakers are designing connected and autonomous vehicles (CAVs) to operate even whenever there is no network connection.
However, there are many applications that rely heavily on having a fully functional and performant WAN – particularly as there is an increasing reliance on cloud computing for Infrastructure-as-a-Service, Platform-as-a-Service, Backup-as-a-Service, Software-as-a-Service, etc.
In the attempt to overcome latency, packet loss issues, an increasing number of organisations are turning to software-defined WANs (SD-WANs). While SD-WANs are a great technology, they can also significantly benefit from a boost with a Bridgeworks PORTrockIT WAN Acceleration overlay.
This patented technology uses artificial intelligence (AI) and machine learning (ML) to mitigate the effects of latency and packet loss, while significantly improving WAN bandwidth utilisation, in ways that SD-WAN WANs achieve. WAN Acceleration accelerates data transfer speeds up to 200x faster than traditional WAN Optimisation technologies, while enabling the transmission of encrypted data at speed – and that’s something that traditional WANop can’t do.
Increasing bandwidth utilisation
Bridgeworks can deliver 98% of your organisation’s achievable bandwidth regardless of distance and size of data. With our team’s help your organisation can achieve these dramatic results through revolutionary patented AI technology that optimises and self-configures to produce acceleration speeds not seen before. WAN Acceleration is therefore the only solution that can effectively and efficiently mitigate the effects of latency and packet loss, while significantly improving the performance and bandwidth utilisation of your organisation’s WAN.
