PARIS -- Ipanema Technologies – a market visionary in WAN Optimisation Controllers (WOC) – today announces the immediate availability of the nano|engine family of low cost, ultracompact devices tailored for branch offices.

WOCs have traditionally focused on addressing high delay, low bandwidth and expensive access lines, concentrating their feature-set on extremely demanding compression and protocol acceleration. With price points from €5,800 to €14,500 these devices cannot address the high speed, low price branch office market. Priced at €433 and €724 and with an optimized feature-set, the new nano|engines from Ipanema Technologies perfectly fit the needs of the modern connected branch office.

Application delivery in branch offices is undergoing tremendous transformation: traffic originating from private data centers is combining with traffic from external public clouds; hybrid networks proliferate; Unified Communication is increasing branch-to-branch flows; bandwidth intensive usages like hosted virtual desktops and rich media delivery are emerging. Guaranteeing business critical application performance is now extremely challenging.

“The branch is becoming a focal point of the application delivery chain and the ability to control flows from that perspective is driving a new generation of QoS technologies,” said Joe Skorupa, Research Vice President, Datacenter Convergence, Gartner, Inc. “Application aware, policy driven dynamic QoS engines that cost-effectively support the complex multi-point traffic flows of the branch will drive WAN optimisation adoption over the next two years.”

The new nano|2 and nano|5 devices target branch offices with up to 20 and 50 users respectively and provide:

• Application aware, per connection control and dynamic QoS for public and private application flows to guarantee a good and stable Quality of Experience for each user;

• End-to-end Visibility of application performance of each flow with comprehensive KPIs and quality scores;

• Dynamic selection among up to 3 networks for optimised path control of multi-attached branches, local Internet breakouts and hybrid networks.

The nano|engine family fits particularly well in B2C sectors like retail, finance and hospitality. Slow response times to access customer data or delays in processing an order lead to customer dissatisfaction and loss of productivity. Nano|engines’ ability to guarantee application performance prevents key applications like Point of Sale and ERP systems from suffering network related delays.

As components of ANS (Autonomic Networking System) architecture and managed from the central SALSA platform, nano|engines are part of the Ipanema’s autonomic control plane that dynamically orchestrates each application flow end-to-end across the enterprise WAN. “For the first time, it is possible to guarantee application performance with a global solution that matches all the growing requirements for control including within high speed, low cost branch office situations,” said Frank Lyonnet, VP Product Marketing at Ipanema Technologies.

The nano|engine family is available now through VARs/VADs and Service Providers. Large enterprises as well as SMEs and SMBs can now guarantee their application performance and implement application SLAs for all branch offices and users accessing applications in those offices.
