Cisco Implementing and Configuring APPNAV and WAAS v6.2 is a five-day training course that teaches the student how to optimize the wide area network with Cisco’s product line so the end user thinks they are accessing data locally, not over slow wan links. This course covers all the standard functions such as TCP Optimization, Data Redundancy Elimination but also focuses on advanced topics such as APPNAV and Akamai Connect. Students will focus on common optimization methods and then do a deep dive on advanced content optimization for content including Youtube, Netflix and other dynamic multimedia content. Cisco’s vWAAS product line is focused on network optimization. Instead of always “buying more bandwidth”, Wide Area Application Acceleration Services focuses on how to optimize the data so your end users don’t waste as much bandwidth. TCP/IP was not designed for the large network infrastructures or the internet it is used on today. vWAAS allows IT professionals management and control capabilities to optimize, reduce and compress the data being sent across their wide area networks. It allows the IT department to “manage and optimize” the data, rather than “throw more bandwidth” at the problem and hope that solves it. One of the biggest issues on today's networks is video streaming. With Akamai Connect and APPNAV, the IT department can optimize this dynamic content and fine tune what happens with the data as it crosses the network.
