WAN optimization

The Citrix SD-WAN WANOP appliance optimizes WAN links, ensuring maximum responsiveness and throughput. The Citrix SD-WAN WANOP appliances work in pairs, one at each end of a link, to accelerate traffic over the link. The following are some of the features of Citrix SD-WAN WANOP:

  • Compression, including cross-session tokenized compression

  • TCP protocol acceleration

  • Traffic management

  • Application acceleration

  • Citrix Virtual Apps and Desktops (HDX) acceleration and compression offload

  • Decryption of HDX traffic secured by SSL/TLS

  • Monitoring and management
