Established in 1971 by the National Association of Securities Dealers (NASD), NASDAQ is an automated quotation system that reports on :PKTR), the global leader in WAN application delivery, today announced that Henderson District Public Libraries, serving the city of Henderson, Nev., is deploying iShaper[TM] appliances at its main library and all branch locations to offer patrons high-performance access to both the Internet and its own online content, while balancing network In a hybrid set, hybrid coil, or resistance hybrid, balancing network is a circuit used to match, i.e., to balance, the impedance of a uniform transmission line, (e.g., a twisted metallic pair, coaxial cable, etc.) over a selected range of frequencies. bandwidth utilization to support business-critical library automation and voice-over-IP applications. The iShaper solution delivers an entirely new class of unified branch office capabilities by combining unprecedented application visibility, intelligent acceleration and compression, caching, secure application QoS, and native Microsoft Wide Area File Services Wide Area File Services (WAFS) products allow remote office users to access and share files globally at LAN speeds over the WAN. Distributed enterprises that deploy WAFS solutions are able to consolidate storage to corporate datacenters, eliminating the need to backup and manage (WAFS) in a single, easy-to-deploy appliance. The iShaper deployment will enable Henderson Libraries to eliminate servers in all remote branches without requiring WAN bandwidth upgrades.

Printed publications are still important, of course, but the library of the future will need to offer the full spectrum of available content to adequately serve the public's needs."
The challenge for Henderson Libraries was to prioritize and provide reliable delivery of Internet access, its own internal library automation applications and growing collection of online content, and video/VoIP communications cost-effectively at all locations. The centralization cen·tral·ize

2. of all IT services at the main branch would yield substantial cost savings, but would also place increased traffic on the remote branch WAN links that range in throughput from T1's 1.5 Mbps to MetroEthernet's 5 Mbps.
"We installed a PacketShaper system a few years ago when we began using videoconferencing, and that has really helped us keep our WAN bandwidth costs to a minimum," Hill explained. "But we have since grown and added a considerable amount of bandwidth-intensive online content, resulting in sluggish performance during peak periods, especially when users are attempting to download streaming video A one-way video transmission over a data network. It is widely used on the Web as well as company networks to play video clips and video broadcasts. Computers in home networks stream video to digital media hubs connected to a home theater. and music files."
Faced with a potential costly WAN upgrade, Hill investigated his options. Because the library had standardized on Microsoft to minimize software licensing fees, Hill required a natively compatible Microsoft WAFS solution to centralize cen·tral·ize

2. the libraries' servers. "When Packeteer introduced the iShaper, I knew it was the ideal solution for all our needs since the appliance is transparent to our network operations," Hill said. "It also provides us with the ability to intelligently monitor application traffic and 'dial down' bandwidth abusers so our business-critical voice, catalog search and library operations applications are always guaranteed top priority."
"Henderson District Public Libraries had been a long-time satisfied Packeteer PacketShaper([R]) customer when they approached Starnet about the integrated iShaper platform," said Steve Marks, president and general manager at Starnet Data Design (http://www.starnetdata.com), a Packeteer product integrator. "With iShaper, Henderson District Public Libraries found a simple, seamless and easy to install upgrade for its PacketShaper appliances in order to offer a broad range of file sharing Copying files from one computer to another. See peer-to-peer network, file sharing protocol and file and printer sharing. and acceleration features and Microsoft services."
The iShaper system combines the capabilities of Packeteer's PacketShaper and iShared([R]) product lines. PacketShaper features include network and application monitoring and analysis as well as application-intelligent traffic classification and acceleration and QoS shaping. iShared features include the WAFS distributed filesystem with native support for Windows Print, DNS/DHCP, Domain Controller functions, together with application-intelligent caching. The iShaper's design provides a more comprehensive growth path for customers upgrading from either the PacketShaper or iShared solutions, as well as a complete "Branch Office-in-a-Box" solution for new Packeteer customers.
