VNS - WAN Optimization

Protect your business easily and on the fly.

­­Supercharge your WAN with virtualized services.

Your WAN’s performance can be greatly affected by how fast your apps respond to remote and mobile users, not just those near your data center. So, you need a network that can deliver your apps quickly, and deliver an exceptional user experience, from every source—the internet, on and off premises and the cloud.

Virtual Network Services (VNS) - WAN Optimization fine-tunes your vital WAN links so app traffic can sail swiftly between your headquarters and remote locations. It’s easy to deploy and provides greater visibility into app and network performance, and the end user experience. And it’s all backed by more than 25 years of experience managing customer networks.

What is VNS - WAN Optimization?

VNS - WAN Optimization helps dynamically accelerate app delivery and performance across your WAN with network functions virtualization (NFV). It lets you deploy multiple functions on a single, universal customer premises equipment (uCPE) appliance, virtual CPE (vCPE) from Verizon Cloud, or a mix of the two.

How does VNS - WAN Optimization work?

Our VNS - WAN Optimization solutions use WAN accelerators to help expedite communications between the server and receiving device. They use data compression so more information can be sent; data scaling, which uses shorthand pointers for fast transmission; and predictive processes that can learn the receiver’s intentions and desired actions.

Network orchestration powers digital transformation.
