BOSTON -- Worldwide sales of WAN optimization appliances jumped 71% from 2006 to 2007, to over $800 million, says Infonetics Research in its latest "Enterprise Routers and WAN Optimization Appliances" report.

"The WAN optimization market had a good year, as vendors ramped up shipments of new products, and Riverbed went into growth mode as a public company," said Matthias Machowinski, directing analyst for enterprise voice and data at Infonetics Research. "Things were a little quieter on the enterprise router front, due to deterioration in the low-end of the market. Cisco's recent announcement of the ASR 1000 should inject some excitement into the market in 2008, and keep the high-end router battle between Cisco and Juniper worth watching."
