Cisco Introduces Integrated Branch-Office Solution

Cisco Systems introduced a branch- office solution that combines WAN Optimization, Application Acceleration and Wide-Area File Services (WAFS) capabilities. Cisco said its branch office solution combined with Cisco Application Networking Services could scale to support thousands of branch offices and up to millions of TCP connections with up to 16 Gbps performance in a fully load-balanced deployment.

Cisco also introduced a network module for running WAAS software on the Cisco integrated services router (ISR), of which more than one million units are deployed worldwide. The Cisco WAAS solution is also offered as a stand-alone appliance.

The WAAS solution is a part of Cisco's Application Networking Services, a portfolio of application-aware networking products, which includes:

  • the Application Control Engine (ACE), which integrates server load balancing, application security and unique virtual partitioning capabilities

  • the Application Velocity System (AVS), which accelerates and secures Internet-facing applications

  • the Application and Content Networking System (ACNS), which effectively delivers video to remote branches

Cisco WAAS solution includes the Cisco WAAS software and the Cisco Wide-Area Application Engine (WAE) appliance family as well as new network modules (WAE-NM) that integrate with Cisco's 2800, 3700 and 3800 Series Integrated Services Routers.
