Increase WAN throughput and reliability while improving the application experience with Citrix NetScaler SD-WAN SDN. The traditional WAN was not designed to tackle today’s application traffic. The Citrix Software-Defined WAN solution, Citrix NetScaler SD-WAN, offers a more scalable, reliable, and cloud-ready approach. Combining the intelligence of SD-WAN technology, WAN optimization, routing and application management into one comprehensive solution, Citrix NetScaler SD-WAN ensures the user experience at the branch and mobile level are just as rich and seamless as at headquarters. The distributed enterprise requires a solution that ensure users remain connected at all times. One that strengthens security and that provides end-to-end visibility without adding complexity. Businesses rely on branch offices or remote employees to serve customers, to be near partners and suppliers and to expand into new markets.

As application and desktop virtualization increase or applications move to the cloud, IT managers face the challenge of providing these applications without a performance penalty to branch and mobile users. Citrix NetScaler SD-WAN can help you effectively and economically increase WAN throughput while accelerating enterprise applications and ensuring the performance and availability of mission critical applications. Maintain high performance for mission critical applications even when a network link fails. Improve the virtual desktop experience to branch office and mobile users and accelerate traditional enterprise applications. Expand WAN capacity with low-cost broadband connections, while maintaining MPLS-level quality and reliability. Support cloud migration with integrated security to protect enterprise data. Simplify IT with integrated routing and WAN Optimization to reduce network footprint. Secure data across the WAN and to the cloud with strong encryption, application level security policies and data segmentation.


Business Continuity And IT Disaster Recovery

While most business continuity and IT disaster recovery plans focus on protecting the data center, your plans should also ensure server availability and access to the business-critical apps, data, and collaboration tools that keep the business running. Remote access and WAN technologies are key, allowing people to work as usual, even during a natural emergency. Citrix networking solutions work together to form a complete business continuity and IT disaster recovery plan. They ensure service and resource availability, a seamless user experience, uninterrupted remote and branch access, and data replication. During a business continuity event, data and apps are delivered to users in the same way they’re accustomed to — whether it’s LAN, WAN, broadband, satellite, hotspot, or mobile — with the same inherent security, control, compliance monitoring, and tracking. Citrix NetScaler SD-WAN appliances continuously monitor every MPLS and broadband connection by tagging packets with sequence numbers.

Segmented And Secure Data Transmission

NetScaler SD-WAN creates a reliable WAN from diverse network links, continuously measuring and monitoring each link for loss, latency, jitter and congestion. Link outages and errors are mitigated by Citrix NetScaler SD WANs ability to move traffic off of poor performing links without impact to the applications. Mission critical applications are always routed across the paths with the fastest transit time, real-time application traffic can be duplicated to guarantee no loss and traffic from high bandwidth applications can be balanced across multiple links. With Citrix NetScaler SD-WAN, this results in a high bandwidth, low-cost WAN that is reliable and ensures high application quality. Citrix NetScaler SD-WAN appliances measure latency, jitter and loss to create a “map” of the network underlay. This map is used to direct each app to the best path and ensure that the user experience is high quality.

Citrix NetScaler SD-WAN

Citrix NetScaler SD-WAN identifies applications using the WAN and applies default or user defined rules to ensure that critical application receive priority and are routed across the highest-quality link. Lower quality links are used only as much as necessary, and then only for applications that can tolerate higher latency. Packet reordering and packet loss mitigation features reduce jitter and packet loss. Through features such as TCP flow control, data compression, de-duplication and protocol optimization, NetScaler SD-WAN can improve the end-user experience as well as provide a reduction in WAN bandwidth expenses. Citrix NetScaler SD-WAN can optimize video delivery within XenDesktop environments as well as for popular websites and internal video content repositories. Citrix NetScaler SD-WAN provides an alternative to the legacy branch router, enabling a simpler branch network with lower infrastructure and support costs. With dynamic routing, Citrix NetScaler SD-WAN can participate in your routing topology in overlay mode for easy network insertion.
