compress more than 155 Mbps

Hi,

 

Is it  possible to compress more than 155 Mbps of traffic ?

 

Is it planned tohave some WXC devices that can deal with such internet bandwidth ?

 

thanks.

Re: compress more than 155 Mbps

Well, actually the WXC line can compress more than 155 Mbps of traffic. The 155 is the output limit, so the actual amount of compressed data can be greater than that, and would depend on the compression ratios.

 

I don't work for Juniper (just a lowly reseller) but it is a known fact that they are working on a "big box" but it won't see the light for day for awhile.

Re: compress more than 155 Mbps

thanks muttbarker for your reply. 

 

Let's put the question differently.

 

Imagine I have an internet link with bandwidth 1Gbps.

 

What and when could I use a WX device to manage such a link with the whole bandwidth ?

Re: compress more than 155 Mbps

If you have a 1GB link that is saturated then you would have some real challenges using the WXC solution. However if you have a chunk of traffic on that link that you need to process then you can do using an off-path implementation.

 

I have worked on two customer implementations that involved very large circuits, OC12+ in size for data center to data center file transfers. An off-path solution works quite well in many cases for circuits like that.

 

It is also worth noting that in most cases when you are talking about circuits that large then your primary issues are latency, not compression. The WXC units will accelerate traffic over their compression limits without any issues. That is not something that is well known about the solution.
