Businesses increasingly depend on IT to access a broad range of critical applications, hosted centrally in private and public Cloud environments. Companies must also keep pace with the growing range of devices for connecting people quickly and reliably across diverse locations. For businesses this has created greater IT complexity and new operational challenges. In particular, existing bandwidth limits, as well as the network latency effects seen on remote, wireless and satellite-based VPN links and secondary/back-up connections, have led to reduced application performance and a degraded user experience.
To avoid disruptions, businesses, in partnership with satellite and terrestrial network service providers, need an effective way of delivering LAN-like performance to employees, regardless of location and network connection type.
