Virtela Intros WAN Service

Virtela announced its Accelerated WAN Service, a comprehensive managed suite of services that overcomes distance limitations

DENVER -- Virtela, the secure network solutions company, today announced its Accelerated WAN Service, the industry's first consultative approach toward managed WAN acceleration and optimization services capable of spanning multi-carrier environments on a global scale. Virtela's Accelerated WAN Service is a comprehensive managed suite of services that overcomes distance limitations by improving application and protocol performance over the WAN by a factor of two to three times on average, or as much as a factor of 30 times, depending on the application.

As a result, employees in remote offices can now experience the same application performance as their colleagues at headquarters. In addition, Virtela's Accelerated WAN Service enables enterprises and multinationals to maximize their current bandwidth costs (or avoid new costs) and move their operations and applications anywhere in the world without incurring the potential performance penalties typically associated with 'chatty' applications and large files traversing long distances across the WAN.

"High latency can slow applications to a crawl, and sending large files over the WAN can take far too long," said Bill Dodds, Virtela's vice president of sales and marketing. "Problems like these can have a significant impact on applications' usability and on overall productivity. Our Accelerated WAN Service greatly improves the user experience, making it seem as if remote applications are loading from the local site and slashing file transfer time."
