Exinda Optimizes Network Bandwidth for Ryerson University Major Canadian University Chooses Exinda Appliance to Prioritize Applications

Exinda, a global provider of next generation WAN optimization solutions incorporating Unified Performance Management, today announced that Ryerson University of Toronto, Ontario, Canada has deployed is 10060 series WAN optimization appliance to monitor traffic, prioritize applications, and optimize bandwidth usage on its campus network.

“We had increased bandwidth on our network to more than 1 gigabit per second, but our legacy packet shaping appliance topped out at 600 megabits per second, so we really had no visibility or control over what was on our network,” said Ken Woo, assistant director for communications services at Ryerson University. “The Exinda appliance will allow us to manage up to 10 gigabits of traffic, so it gives us a lot of scalability for the future.”

EdgeWorx of Markham, Ontario supplied the Exinda appliance. With the Exinda solution in place, the university can prioritize critical applications such as student registration and learning management while limiting the bandwidth available to recreational applications such as BitTorrent. The Exinda solution reduced BitTorrent’s usage of bandwidth from 200 Mbps to 30 Mpbs within a minute after the appropriate policy was activated. In addition, Exinda’s graphical reporting capabilities make it easy to produce reports for upper management.
