Wireless Internet has moved from being a luxury to being an expected staple of life in hotels, conference venues, hospitals, university campuses and numerous places besides. With the proliferation of smart phones and tablet PCs the demand for wireless coverage in public spaces has increased dramatically.
One of the largest vendors in the US of WAN optimization and network bandwidth management solutions found this appliance perfect for their requirements. Their WAN optimization appliances provide network management functions covering: network optimization, application visibility, traffic control, and application acceleration. This enables organizations to see, control, accelerate, and optimize traffic on their WANs.
A strategically deployed application delivery controller (ADC) provides not only improved security, visibility and acceleration; it ensures the availability of mission-critical applications. One of the global leaders in ADCs approached Lanner when they were developing their latest product. As a global leader, they were not looking for a standard run-of-the-mill application networking appliance. They were looking for hardware suited for a next generation application delivery controller.
Firewalls started to become a commodity many years ago. One of the US-based companies that saw this trend early is one of Lanner’s customers today. It has taken 8 years, but today they are considered a leading company in universal threat management and next generation firewalls. Together with Lanner they’ve designed three generations of network security product lines and climbed up to their leadership position fueled by their advantages in both cost and technology.
