Minimises performance degradation associated with long round-trip times and packet loss over global channels
Electronics company Hitachi has unveiled WAN Accelerator Family for global data centres and for enterprises with global R&D, design and manufacturing operations.
Hitachi WAN Accelerator Family speeds up international transfers of large volumes of graphical design data and the like, by minimising the performance impact of packet losses and round-trip delays on global Wide Area Networks (WANs).
Hitachi WAN Accelerator Family makes the best use of the physical bandwidth of communication channels, reducing the time to access data updates, and thus improving productivity of global companies significantly.
By using a Hitachi algorithm for performance improvement, Hitachi WAN Accelerator Family minimises performance degradation associated with long round-trip times and packet loss over global channels and improves the throughput of TCP sessions.
Hitachi WAN Accelerator Family measures packet loss ratio in real time, estimates the available bandwidth and optimises data transfer speed on a real-time basis. The products can be installed at both ends of circuits in the existing systems, without changing network design or client terminal and server applications.
To realise high-speed data communication, Hitachi WAN Accelerator Family makes the most of the physical channel bandwidth.
