Silver Peak Application Performance Torture Test
A key benefit delivered by SD-WAN is the ability to actively utilize low-cost broadband services. However, even business-grade broadband connections often perform poorly due to packet loss when congestion occurs.
So Silver Peak decided to create an Application Performance ‘Torture’ Test. They created a bonded tunnel using two WAN services and injected various amounts of packet loss and introduced link failures.
With path conditioning and dynamic path control, applications still ran at peak performance, even during transport brownouts or outages. Read this white paper to examine the test, and its results, in greater detail.
