WAN Optimization Through IP Payload Compression

Data compression reduces the size of data frames that are transmitted over a network link, thereby reducing the time required to transmit the frame across the network. IP payload compression is one of the key features of the WAN Wide Area Network. WAN is a telecommunications network or computer network that extends over a large geographical distance. bandwidth optimization solution, which is comprised of the following elements:

WAN Wide Area Network. WAN is a telecommunications network or computer network that extends over a large geographical distance. optimization through IP payload compression is not supported in a 7205 controller.

The managed device can send traffic to destinations other than the corporate headquarters on the same link, so payload compression is enabled on the IPsec Internet Protocol security. IPsec is a protocol suite for secure IP communications that authenticates and encrypts each IP packet in a communication session. tunnel between the managed device and Mobility Master. Dynamic compression is used for the IP payload to achieve a high compression ratio. No compression is applied to data such as an embedded image file that might already be in a compressed format. Such data does not compress well, and may even increase in size.

The following procedure describes how to enable payload compression:

  1. In the Managed Network node hierarchy, navigate to the Configuration > Services > WAN tab.
  2. Expand the WAN Optimization accordion.
  3. Select the Compression option.
  4. Click Submit.
  5. Click Pending Changes.
  6. In the Pending Changes window, select the check box and click Deploy Changes.
