WarpGateway™ Branch Office

Product Brief

WarpGateway™ Branch Office — TCP Optimization Proxy Appliance

The WarpGateway™ Branch Office solution is designed to improve application response time without the need for costly network equipment or end user device upgrades. It is a transparent optimization proxy that sits between your Internet connection and local Wi-Fi or Ethernet network.

WarpGateway™ Branch Office accelerates downloads and uploads by up to 100% depending on network conditions. Performance for WarpGateway™ Branch Office 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 protocol was invented 35+ years ago, however it was never designed for use in massive cloud infrastructures or wireless networks. It was architected with guaranteed delivery in mind, not speed. Given the jittery nature of wireless networks, TCP often overreacts to congestion and network variations. The result is a drastic drop in throughput, causing a 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 solutions, WarpTCP™ does not overreact to temporary or false- alarm congestion, minimizes re-transmissions, and recovers faster from a congestion event.

Benchmarks

The WarpGateway™ Branch Office benchmarks were measured on a production Enterprise network with remote locations across the world. Page Load times were measured with and without WarpTCP™ optimization and showed on average 63% improvement.
