The WAN LAN Optimizer flow manager is a compact in-line appliance that manages network traffic flows to optimize and protect network and server infrastructures. Deployed in front of servers or network equipment, the WAN LAN Optimizer, flow manager is a non-intrusive solution for managing against bandwidth abuse or attacks against network infrastructure. Based on the new “RDX” technology, it supports monitoring network flows at 2Gbps throughput while maintaining line quality and low latency.
The WAN LAN Optimizer flow manager is configured using granular user-defined policies identifying thresholds for session creation, per flow bandwidth and aggregate bandwidth. With its compact form factor and low power characteristics, the WAN LAN Optimizer supports flexible deployment options that are traditionally limited by space and power restrictions.Using less than 15 Watts, the WAN LAN Optimizer flow manager reduces the cost of operation over traditional flow monitoring devices.
