• Eliminates 65% to 98% of TCP packets required to transfer data
• Accelerate encrypted (SSL) traffic like HTTPS
• Optimizes both low-bandwidth and high-bandwidth connections
Transport Streamlining improves the performance of TCP-based applications by improving the way transport protocols behave on WANs, reducing the number of TCP packets required to transfer data by 65% to 98%. Transport Streamlining overcomes the limitations of TCP by adapting transmission characteristics such as window scale, loss handling, congestion notification, and more.
Transport Streamlining now supports the acceleration of encrypted SSL traffic (like HTTPS), which means that even your secure business applications can benefit from Riverbed’s award-winning application acceleration.
For high-bandwidth WAN links (also known as “Long Fat Networks”, or “LFNs”) components of Transport Streamlining known as high speed TCP (HS-TCP) and Max-Speed TCP (MX-TCP) may be activated which enables greater bandwidth utilization, providing the capability to “fill the pipe” more effectively. MX-TCP also helps dealing with lossy network connections.
