Winning on the WAN: How to Validate Network Applications Before You Deploy

Making sure that your applications run properly over private and public wide area networks (WANs) is particularly challenging for applications that are sensitive to network conditions. The only way to have confidence that a given application will operate with acceptable performance once it is deployed is to test it under expected (and maybe unexpected) production network conditions—prior to deployment.

Cloud Communications Services: Five Questions You Need to Address for Success

Many businesses have been successfully using cloud-based applications for years, but following this path for communications is much more recent. For some businesses cloud communications just means VoIP telephony, while others include applications such as video, text, chat, messaging, email, conferencing, etc. This guide addresses five key questions to help you determine how the cloud aligns with your business communications needs—including reasons to use the cloud, who the cloud is best for, whom you should partner with for cloud communications, when moving to the cloud is best, and how your business should deploy cloud communications—along with a frame of reference for identifying the right conditions for cloud adoption.

How to Boost Your WAN to Top Speed

While globalization can bridge distances and enhance communication, the story is a little different when it comes to wide area networks (WANs) and their effects on branch application performance. High-latency connections and chattiness cause slowed data transmission, and consequently, decreased user productivity. But there is light at the end of the tunnel: a fast branch office application delivery infrastructure.
