LG Electronics Deploys Riverbed's WAN Appliance

LG Electronics has deployed Riverbed Technology's wide-area data services (WDS) Steelhead appliances at several dozen sites in countries around the world to accelerate application performance over its globally distributed wide area network (WAN) and control bandwidth costs. LG Electronics has more than 100 offices outside its Korean headquarters. Its international network was marked by higher latency than intra-Korea bandwidth. Following the deployment of its appliances, Riverbed said LG Electronics saw significant bandwidth savings that delivered a payback period of five months.
