Array Networks Expands aCelera WAN Optimization Product Line with New WAN1100 Small Office Appliance
New aCelera WAN optimization appliance provides simple, compact and cost-effective application acceleration for small and remote office environments
Many small and remote offices share a similar profile: they are often serviced by smaller Internet connections and are unlikely to be staffed by a team of IT experts. Nonetheless, workers at these locations require applications to function seamlessly in order carry out their job functions and maximize productivity.
With the WAN1100, remote and small offices can benefit from the same application experience gained by workers located at headquarters and major branch office facilities. The compact new appliance ships easily and mounts on virtually any surface. Moreover, any office worker can easily plug in, connect and power on the appliance; from there, configuration can be pushed from a centralized management system or performed remotely by IT. Starting at a list price of less than $2,000 for 10Mbps throughput and 40 concurrent TCP connections, WAN1100 appliances enable ROI that makes WAN optimization economically justifiable for more locations than ever before.

In independent tests performed by Miercom – transferring a 1MB file over a 1.5Mbps connection using CIFS or HTTP – aCelera delivered 99% performance improvements, transferring files in mere seconds as compared to hours without aCelera.
