Wide-Area Network Optimization Controllers (WOCs)
WAN optimization controllers (WOCs) in the enterprise WAN enable application centralization by mitigating latency effects and reducing bandwidth costs through the use of bandwidth reduction algorithms, network-level optimization, and other application layer protocol spoofing and optimization techniques that may compensate for lossy links. SoftWOCs provide these benefits to individual devices. WOCs are used for data-center-to-data-center WAN links for data replication to support business continuity/disaster recovery (BC/DR) requirements.
