WAN Optimization as-a-Service allows businesses of all sizes to enjoy accelerated applications and improved network performance within minutes without having to invest in WAN optimization appliances or MPLS. Because it's offered as-a-Service, businesses can also scale up or down as their needs change. But what about those occasional traffic spikes or a one-time need for more bandwidth? That's where Network onDemand offerings come in. Whether a company needs to transfer a huge amount of files just once or experience predictable traffic trends each year, such as seasonal traffic surges, the occasional spike in enterprise WAN traffic often leads to unnecessary and costly investments in MPLS. Rather than reacting to a traffic spike by investing in a WAN appliance, companies now have an affordable, flexible alternative. Through Network onDemand, you can handle these occasional spikes with ease. There's no need to scramble to deploy MPLS -- which can take weeks or longer. Simply activate Network onDemand and get the bandwidth your company needs to accommodate the spike. Once network traffic returns to normal, deactivate the Network onDemand. Through Network OnDemand, you can handle these occasional spikes with ease. There's no need to scramble to deploy MPLS -- which can take weeks or longer. Simply activate Network OnDemand and get the bandwidth your company needs to accommodate the spike. The two solutions, WAN Optimization as-a-Service and Network OnDemand deliver the following benefits:
Performance - With WAN Optimization as-a-Service, performance improves dramatically across the global enterprise. Built-in diversity and redundancy ensure connectivity around the world for optimized, predictable, and reliable performance. Bandwidth Scaling - Bandwidth consumption is reduced by up to 98 percent resulting in 20 to 50 times bandwidth scaling. Accelerated Application
Performance - WAN Optimization as-a-Service has a profound effect on application performance, including bandwidth-intensive applications such as videoconferencing and IP applications.
No Capital Expenses - These solutions are subscription-based, moving you out of a capital expense model and into an operational one. Plus, you can deploy in mere minutes. Scalability - Not only can you scale your WAN Optimization as-a-Service plan up or down as your needs change, you can now add network capacity as needed with Network as-a-Service. Handle incidental and seasonal spikes as needed without having to invest in new WAN appliances or wait for your IT team to deploy a more complex solution. By the time your team gets around to deploying a solution, the spike may be over. Why suffer through it and deploy unnecessary solutions when you can increase capacity as needed to handle traffic spikes?
WAN Optimization as-a-Service subscribers can now receive immediate access to private WAN connectivity and optimization as needed with Network as-a-Service. The cost of Network as-a-Service is based on metered usage. You pay only for what you use beyond your subscription to handle temporary surges in traffic.
