|IWAN Application Optimization|
Cisco Application Visibility and Control (AVC) and Cisco Wide Area Application Services (WAAS) provide application performance visibility and optimization over the WAN. With applications becoming increasingly opaque due to increase reuse of well-known ports such as HTTP (port 80), static port classification of application is no longer sufficient. Cisco AVC provides application awareness with deep packet inspection of traffic to identify and monitor applications' performance. Visibility and control at the application level (layer 7) is provided through AVC technologies such as Network-Based Application Recognition 2 (NBAR2), NetFlow, quality of service (QoS), Performance Monitoring, Medianet, and more. Cisco AVC allows IT to determine what traffic is running across the network, tune the network for business- critical services, and resolve network problems. With increased visibility into the applications on the network, better QoS and PfR policies can be enabled to help ensure that critical applications are properly prioritized across the network. Cisco WAAS provides application-specific acceleration capabilities that improve response times while reducing WAN bandwidth requirements.
