WAN Optimization uses a compression and caching technology to eliminate redundant transmissions; as a result it increases the apparent speed at which data is transmitted. It also improves the performance of many application-specific protocols, such as TCP, HTTP, MAPI and CIFS, by optimizing the protocol interaction between end-points and minimizing the natural slowing effects of latency on such applications.
