Dealing With Bandwidth Demand
The Internet is experiencing dramatic changes in usage patterns as users shift from fixed to mobile access and the volume of interactive and video content increases dramatically. Carriers, service providers, large enterprises and educational grids all face a similar problem: Exponential growth in bandwidth requirements that consume capacity as soon as they create it. Networks have to be able to keep up with volatile demand, avoiding network congestion while maintaining service functionality and profitability.
Take Back Control of the Network
The FortiCache range of appliances provides a combination of content caching, WAN acceleration, and filtering controls to ensure the content you want is delivered promptly, bandwidth overheads are minimized, and controls are in place to ensure bandwidth misuse is mitigated.
Content caching enables organizations to reuse popular content rather than download it every time a user requests it. WAN acceleration techniques minimize the overhead on transactions, lowering the per-user bandwidth cost and speeding up connectivity. The integrated FortiGuard web filtering allows network administrators to selectively control or block access to content by type, (e.g. adult, or malicious content) to protect users and offer them differentiated services.
|Enterprise Class Content Caching
||Increases network performance, improves user satisfaction and reduces bandwidth costs.
||Minimizes impact of viral video on network resource by caching common resource intensive web video formats including YouTube.
|FortiGuard Antivirus and Web Content Filtering
||Protects users from accessing unwanted content and secures network from malicious malware threats.
|Real-Time Content Analysis
||Detect and block adult content, even in “good” web sites.
||Lower network transaction overheads, improving speed and decreasing network utilization.
Bandwidth Reduction and Application Acceleration
The Internet is increasingly driven by short-term phenomena as news stories, sporting events, viral videos and games drive spikes in bandwidth demand. Interest in such content can spread within minutes, proliferate quickly and generate huge loads on the network. The result is congestion, latency and unplanned cost. By reducing the amount of bandwidth used, particularly during demand spikes, service providers and enterprises can deliver a higher quality of service to their customers, improve customer satisfaction, retain a larger customer base and ultimately drive profitability.
FortiCache Network Control
You may be battling against the continuous need to upgrade bandwidth and the associated costs. In some locations, it may not be possible to purchase additional bandwidth. In these situations, FortiCache can enable your organization to remove the need for costly upgrades and gain more performance from your existing investments.
FortiCache enables the network administrator to optimize and accelerate the network by keeping as much traffic as possible “on net” and thus decrease the utilization of valuable external connectivity. This allows upgrades to be planned strategically rather than reactively. FortiCache understands the delivery format of content delivery networks, enabling caching of dynamic, distributed and streaming video content, even if such video is padded with advertisements or the file is served from different locations within the Content Delivery Network.
