Wide and wise makes WANs work
Bandwidth may not be the answer. Even though a growing number of devices access an increasing number of applications and all add an overhead to your networks, adding bandwidth alone may not be enough. For a distributed workforce, where applications run in multiple locations globally the greatest problem is often latency.
WAN Optimisation (or WAN Acceleration) can maximize the efficiency of data flow across a network, and that can mean increased speed of access to critical information and applications. Choosing the right solution is key, as the implications will be felt across the entire organisation.
If the improved network performance, and lower WAN costs are invariably worth the effort, a happier, less stressed workforce certainly is.
