Packeteer Launches Intelligent WAN Application Optimization Best Practice and Free WAN Performance Evaluation.

eIIntelligent Lifecycle Process' Ensures Optimal Performance for All WAN Applications; Delivers Application Discovery and Detailed Performance Reporting

CUPERTINO, Calif. -- Packeteer([R]) (NASDAQ:PKTR), the global leader in WAN Application Optimization, today announced the launch of a new best practice process that will enable customers to intelligently optimize and accelerate the performance of every application at every location. The new "Intelligent Lifecycle Process" (ILP) provides enterprises with a methodology to pinpoint and resolve performance issues, determine the right WAN optimization and acceleration technologies to apply, support strategic application rollouts and successfully implement server and storage consolidation initiatives.

As part of the ILP rollout, Packeteer will offer enterprises a free WAN performance evaluation. Delivered by Packeteer or one of its qualified value-added resellers, the WAN Performance Evaluation Program will leverage PacketShaper[R] visibility and monitoring tools to automatically discover network applications, identify "top talkers," demonstrate how much bandwidth applications are consuming, and reveal response time characteristics and related network efficiency concerns for key applications. This evaluation provides the insight needed to resolve application delivery issues and intelligently deploy application acceleration technology. Prospective customers will be provided with unique views into their network traffic, to troubleshoot performance issues and determine the right tools to prioritize, accelerate and optimize specific applications. To find out more about the Intelligent Lifecycle Process and register for Packeteer's WAN Performance Evaluation, go to www.packeteer.com/freewanperfeval.

"As a Packeteer reseller for the past seven years, I've watched network managers stare in amazement when they finally see exactly what kind of traffic is running across their network after plugging in the PacketShaper," said Tim Hebert, CIO of Atrion Networking Corporation, a Packeteer service and solutions partner. "While the concept of network visibility isn't new per se, the ability to drill deeply into a client's network to help them understand why their applications behave the way they do is a revelation. That's why the rollout of the new ILP process and free WAN performance evaluation program will be hugely attractive to prospects who are trying to figure out how, when and where to apply the right WAN application optimization and acceleration technologies."

With the introduction of the ILP program, Packeteer will help enterprises determine the source of unknown network and application-based performance issues. It will also provide a proven methodology for ensuring successful IP telephony deployments and expansion, MPLS WAN service transitions and ERP rollouts and architecture changes. In addition, the ILP framework will take the guesswork out of XML-based web service application rollouts, pinpoint collaborative application performance issues and help identify and isolate infected hosts and rogue servers.

The ILP best practice process consists of four primary actions:

Assess: The prerequisite for discovering applications on the network, diagnosing application and network performance issues and determining the right tools to resolve and optimize network and data services.

Provision: Protect key application availability through prioritization and quality-of-service strategies and contain recreational and malicious traffic. This phase of the ILP also establishes compliance policies and aligns costs with business usage.

Accelerate: Maximize application response times by applying the right WAN optimization technologies to overcome latency issues, accelerate class-specific applications and preserve bandwidth capacity to resolve network-based performance constraints.

Extend: Deliver data center services, voice and network security out to the branch with centrally managed, distributed intelligence capabilities.

"When it comes to providing, high-performance WAN application delivery solutions, there is a huge distinction between eIbest practice' and eIbest guess,'" said Mark Urban, director of product marketing at Packeteer. "No other vendor can provide this deep insight into network traffic in order to apply intelligent application acceleration. With the introduction of the ILP framework and free WAN performance assessment, we're upping the ante on what it takes to fully realize WAN optimization."
