Exhibits Virtual and Mobile Acceleration for Advancing Army CommunicationsExpand Networks www.expand.com, the largest supplier of WAN Optimization products to US Government and Military agencies, will demonstrate the latest innovations in acceleration techniques for US Army communications, to include tactical cloud computing and comms-on-the move at LandWarNet 2009. As all military organizations seek to determine the best methods to deliver network services, advances in optimization techniques are enabling the delivery of high-performance distributed services in tactical environments over low bandwidth -- high latency links. These optimized mobile data centers can bring real-time network services closer to the forward edge of the battle area and accelerate the kill-chain. Jeffrey DeBarros, Senior Analyst, Aberdeen Group comments; "Increasing performance over low bandwidth-high latency links requires solutions that can effectively accelerate the performance of mission critical applications in that environment. Application delays and connectivity problems are inherent challenges on these networks and WAN optimization technologies deliver solution critical options to improve throughput and application response times over these low speed infrastructures." Since its initial 1999 rollout in the Defense Information Systems Agency (DISA), more than 11,000 Expand Networks Accelerators have been deployed throughout the US government and in all branches of the American Military and US Coast Guard. Expand Networks accelerators have been deployed with US Army and Marine Corps forces in Southwest Asia since the start of Operation Enduring Freedom, and the Expand Accelerator Operating System is also utilized within the US Army's WIN-T architecture. Expand Networks continued technology innovations have long inspired confidence in the delivery of military communications tools; "Expand Networks has been supporting US Army communications programs since 1999," said Howard Teicher, Vice President for Public Sector & Satellite Markets. "Operating enterprise-class applications over low bandwidth-high latency satellite links demands a dynamic, robust WAN Optimization capability to satisfy the soldiers' network performance requirements. Expand's flexible deployment options, including virtual appliances running on commodity hardware, and client software for individual workstations, provide the Army with an efficient optimization capability for every environment." Jeffrey DeBarros, Senior Analyst, Aberdeen Group said, "Virtual accelerators in this environment improve responsiveness of applications to the end-user, and deliver increased WAN capacity for applications. Mobile client software brings the increased performance to the end users mobile node providing application level acceleration, peer to peer QOS', while also delivering efficient TCP optimization at the networks edge. Mobile nodes connected can be easily managed from a central location." Positioned as delivering the fullest capability set by Aberdeen Group in its recent 'Optimizing Application Performance over the WAN 2009 Research Preview' Expands' complete WAN Optimization solution is being used by military services to increase throughput, accelerate application performance and interoperate with other communications nodes equipped with Space Communications Protocol Standard(SCPS- TP) Acceleration devices. Only Expand Networks' technology has the combined flexibility and scalability to deliver the holistic communication and application performance from the enterprise to the battlespace. Expand Networks provides the most reliable and dynamic WAN Optimization technology, including virtual appliances running on commodity hardware, vitally important in military deployments. Expand Networks will be demonstrating its Virtual Accelerator and Mobile Accelerator Client for optimizing tactical cloud computing and comms-on-the move at LandWarNet 2009, Broward County Convention Centre, Lauderdale, Fl. from August 18th- 20th.
