WAN optimization, also known as WAN acceleration, is the category of technologies and techniques used to maximize the efficiency of data flow across a wide area network (WAN). In an enterprise WAN, the goal of optimization is to increase the speed of access to critical applications and information.
RemoteFX is optimized to deliver performance to users located on a local area network. A WAN Optimization solution extends the local performance experience to RemoteFX users located over a WAN. WAN optimization products allow the RemoteFX protocol to more fully utilize the available WAN bandwidth, and significantly increase the number of frames per second of a RemoteFX session, resulting in a smoother, higher fidelity user experience.
