Application Acceleration and WAN Optimization Fundamentals by Ted Grevers Jr., Joel Christner CCIE No. 15311

By Ted Grevers Jr., Joel Christner CCIE No. 15311

IT corporations face strain to extend productiveness, increase program functionality, help international collaboration, increase information security, and reduce bills. In today’s WAN-centered environments, conventional LAN-oriented infrastructure methods are inadequate to satisfy those ambitions. program Acceleration and WAN Optimization basics introduces a greater resolution: integrating today’s new iteration of accelerator recommendations to successfully and successfully scale networks past conventional functions whereas enhancing functionality and minimizing expenditures via consolidation.


Ted Grevers and Joel Christner start via reviewing the demanding situations community pros face in providing functions to globally disbursed workforces. You learn the way accelerators are reworking program company versions, permitting IT departments to centralize and consolidate assets whereas additionally providing constantly greater functionality.


Grevers and Christner express tips to establish community shoppers, prioritize site visitors, and warrantly acceptable throughput and reaction occasions to business-critical functions. You use caliber of provider ideas resembling packet category and staining and site visitors policing, queuing, scheduling, and shaping.


Next, you examine concepts for integrating accelerators and optimization providers into your community and for optimizing content material supply. The authors convey find out how to handle program protocol-related functionality difficulties that can not be resolved via compression or move optimization on my own. within the ultimate bankruptcy, the authors stroll you thru numerous real-world situations for using accelerator know-how.


Ted Grevers, Jr., is the answer supervisor for the Cisco® Video IPTV platforms attempt and structure (C-VISTA) group. He has broad event within the content material supply community (CDN) industry, concentrating on company and repair supplier content material supply and alertness optimization wishes.


Joel Christner, CCIE® No. 15311, is the chief of technical advertising and marketing for the Cisco program supply enterprise Unit (ADBU). He has broad event with program protocols, acceleration applied sciences, LAN/WAN infrastructure, and garage networking. Grevers and Christner are key participants to the layout and structure of Cisco software supply and alertness acceleration solutions.


  • Provide high-performance entry to distant information, content material, video, wealthy media, and applications
  • Understand how accelerators can enhance community functionality and reduce bandwidth consumption
  • Use NetFlow to baseline software requisites and community usage
  • Ensure community assets are allotted in response to company priorities
  • Identify functionality boundaries bobbing up from networks, protocols, working structures, undefined, dossier platforms, and applications
  • Employ application-specific acceleration parts to mitigate the unfavourable impression of latency and bandwidth consumption
  • Integrate content material supply networks (CDN) to centrally deal with the purchase, defense, and distribution of content material to distant locations
  • Leverage WAN optimization applied sciences to enhance software throughput, mitigate the impression of latency and loss, and reduce bandwidth intake
  • Optimize the functionality of WANs and business-critical WAN applications


This booklet is a part of the Cisco Press® basics sequence. Books during this sequence introduce networking execs to new networking applied sciences, protecting community topologies, pattern deployment suggestions, protocols, and administration techniques.

Because of the potentially wide variety of applications, this layer must provide a wealth of services, including establishing privacy mechanisms, authenticating the intended communication partners, and determining if adequate resources are present. Presentation (6)Provides data transformation and assimilation guidelines to provide a common interface for user applications, including services such as reformatting, data compression, and encryption. Session (5)Establishes, manages, and maintains connections between two nodes and manages the interaction between end systems.

When a segment reaches its capacity, the data that is trying to traverse that segment must be held in an interface queue until capacity on the next segment becomes available. Packet loss results in a lack of acknowledgment from the receiving node, causing the originating node to retransmit data from the retransmission buffer. The application might incur delay before continuing due to situations such as this. Packet loss and retransmission cause transport protocol throttling. Connection-oriented transport protocols such as the TCP are able to adapt to WAN conditions and throttle the application process according to the conditions encountered in the network.

Given the disparity in application and transport protocol reaction to congestion, this can create additional complications in terms of the amount of congestion in intermediary network devices. When a transport protocol throttles an application and contains its ability to transmit data, application performance is impacted because less data can be sent at a given time. Connectionless transport protocols rely on the higher-layer protocols to implement flow control and reliable delivery. Mechanisms and characteristics are built into the application process itself if guaranteed delivery is required.
