Comtech EF Data Announces New Durostream WAN Optimization Appliances with Packet Protection
Alternative solution to dedicated links; Maximize throughput over suboptimal existing network infrastructure
The Durostream WAN Optimization solution provides a resilient, full-duplex, point-to-point survivable tunnel that dynamically adapts to network conditions to maximize throughput and minimize latency. The products address the challenge of packet loss on unreliable networks when streaming video or transmitting time-sensitive data.
At just 1% packet loss on a 1 Gbps WAN link and 10ms round trip time, a normal unprotected link using TCP/IP will only achieve 2.8% of the theoretical throughput as opposed to 96.6% if the same link is protected with Durostream. Forward error correction technology and header compression are employed to ensure protocol overhead and latency due to retransmissions are minimized while retaining the ability to overcome sustained packet loss rates of 75%.
Durostream is particularly suited to protecting VoIP traffic, streaming video, live event broadcasts, public safety and critical infrastructure communications, business continuity and disaster recovery operations, remote backups, and general data transfer. By placing a Durostream appliance at both ends of a WAN link, data loss and decreased throughput due to suboptimal network infrastructure can be avoided.
“Our Durostream product line enables the use of unreliable existing network infrastructure for broadcasters, enterprise and government users,” stated
For nearly three decades, AHA has been the global leader in Lossless Data Compression and Forward Error Correction and now supports digital modem solutions and IP Packet Protection. Based in Moscow,
