Transmission Control Protocol (TCP) Acceleration is the technique that helps to achieve much better throughput and goodput of Internet connection link than TCP provides by default.
Almost every TCP Accelerator intercepts and transparently relays TCP connections inside the network. Both on-the-fly compression and transparent nature of such systems make it easy to save bandwidth resources and thus to increase network performance due to utilization of saved link capacity.
TCP Acceleration and Caching features of Traffic Engineering Server natively supports on-the-fly traffic compression that allows ISPs and Enterprises to achieve up to 30% overall bandwidth savings, both on the inbound and outbound circuits.
Among TCP acceleration capabilities of TES are:
- Integrated Performance Enhancing Proxy (PEP)
- On-the-fly TCP traffic compression
- Interception (or Transparent) Acceleration
- No necessity to change client settings
- Fail-over operation
