WarpEngine™ TCP Optimization Proxy Appliance
WarpEngine™ Carrier Edition is a scalable network optimization proxy appliance that can handle millions of TCP sessions simultaneously with little to no overhead. It can be deployed at the customer premise for Enterprise applications, in a Service Provider’s core network or in front of 100’s to 1000’s of servers in a data center.
Performance for WarpEngine™ depends on network variables such as round trip time (RTT), packet loss %, available bandwidth, size of content, and other factors. It is based on Badu’s WarpTCP™ technology, which was developed specifically to perform well in wireless networks.
WarpTCP™ — Smarter Congestion Control
TCP was invented 35+ years ago with guaranteed delivery of data in mind, it was never designed for use in massive cloud infrastructures or today’s overly crowded wireless networks. Given the jittery nature of today’s highly-shared wireless networks, TCP often overreacts to congestion and other network variations which results in a drastic drop in data throughput. This overreacting causes a reduction in utilized available bandwidth, which results in a generally poor user experience.
WarpTCP™ is a set of intelligent algorithms that maximize TCP throughput in the face of network variations such as delay, jitter, packet loss and random bandwidth fluctuation. It was especially designed to maintain high TCP throughput in wireless networks such as LTE and Wi-Fi. Compared to competing TCP acceleration solutions, WarpTCP™ does not overreact to temporary or false-alarm congestion, minimizes re-transmissions, and recovers faster from a congestion event.
WarpEngine™ is ideal for deployment in the use cases below:
- Mobile Operators core network to improve throughput for Mobile Last Mile
- Internet Service Provider core network to improve throughput for Last Mile
- Content Delivery Networks (CDNs)
- Enterprise hybrid cloud architecture application optimization
- Retail/eCommerce sites requiring fast web page loads
- Organizations requiring large file transfers over long network distances
- VOD (video on demand) and Video Streaming service optimization
The WarpEngine™ benchmarks presented below were measured on a live production LTE network. WarpEngine™ completes downloads in half the time compared to Standard TCP.
