WAN testing

Posted in General by testing in London on July 22, 2008

From CRN

With that in mind, the CRN Test Center examined three offerings aimed at making WANs more efficient—so traffic can move and work can get done. While a number of WAN optimization appliance vendors declined to provide products for us to review comparatively against their peers, there were a couple of vendors that made their software-based WAN products available, as did an open-source community that is working on a Linux-based solution.

Our methodology was straightforward: Software was installed on a simulated WAN and examined for ease of deployment and use, performance, features and cost. In the performance testing phase, files were transferred between endpoints on a WAN both with and without the optimization software to gauge whether it improved transfer performance.
