Riverbed Enhances WAN Optimization with Inbound QoS

Riverbed introduced an inbound QoS capability to its Steelhead WAN optimization appliances.

The inbound QoS is increasingly needed to ensure the performance of public cloud services, such as SaaS, that may compete with recreational traffic such as Facebook and YouTube.

Riverbed said its Steelhead already offers advanced traffic classification and outbound QoS capabilities, so its appliance is the right place to ensure inbound QoS as well.

Riverbed developed advanced QoS capabilities that use a combination of proprietary classification methods, simplified configuration and unique scheduling techniques to efficiently allocate minimum and maximum bandwidths and prioritize latency-sensitive applications for both incoming and outgoing traffic.
