ROSELAND, N.J. -- Expand Networks www.expand.com, a leading provider of application acceleration solutions over the Wide Area Network (WAN) and recently positioned in the Gartners Leaders Quadrant for WAN Optimization Controllers 2006, today announced four new products in their Accelerator line in their hardware portfolio. The Accelerator 4830 and 4930 is targeted for small offices and/or branch offices, and the Accelerator 6830 and 6930 is designed for regional offices.

Coming off the heels of the recent announcement of their Compass 6.1 platform, Expand Networks’ four new products will ship with newly added features offering top level reliability and flexibility for network applications: flow optimized TCP acceleration control, dynamic bandwidth adjust and Wide Area File Services (WAFS) transparency.

“Expand Networks is redefining a successful product line to keep up with the flow of data and IP traffic over the corporate networks,” said Efi Gatmor, CTO, Expand Networks. “Consolidation in the branch office, server and data center continues to grow across the globe. By enabling more flexible WAFS implementations and adding features such as self-adjusting TCP acceleration and dynamic bandwidth adjustment, we are offering our customers the most robust and scalable options for their networks. For our customers this means an increase in concurrent optimized TCP sessions which now, at the low end, sit at 64,000 for the 4830 and 4930 and up to 128,000 for the 6830 and 6930.

“According to industry research, the typical branch office user has anywhere from 10-30 sessions open at the same time,” adds Gatmor. “By Expand Networks increasing the capabilities of the concurrent session, we are able to give our customers the opportunity to support more users who are working with intensive applications in a collaborative environment, no matter where they are located. So, from a cost perspective, we are providing a competitively priced device that supports real-life office requirements and day-to-day working scenarios.”
