Exinda's WAN Optimization Solutions Chosen by Pool Innovation

ANDOVER, MA – Exinda, a global provider of WAN optimization solutions, today announced that Pool Innovation Centre has selected Exinda’s solutions to support the delivery of its world-class business incubation and associated support services. The Pool Innovation Centre is a West-Cornwall, UK-based business incubation facility operated by the University of Plymouth Enterprise Ltd. The Exinda solutions have given Pool Innovation Centre improved visibility, reporting, and control of its network infrastructure, enabling it to improve the broadband services delivered to the more than 60 companies it supports.

Pool Innovation Centre selected Exinda’s 6060 series WAN optimization solution that supports up to 1 Gbps worth of traffic and up to 10,000 users, and incorporates ExOS 6.0, the latest generation of Exinda’s software. ExOS 6.0 is a key enhancement to Exinda’s Unified Performance Management (UPM) architecture, and delivers enhanced network visibility, bandwidth control, SSL Encrypted Application Acceleration and allows network managers to leverage Netflow v9 capabilities for centralised reporting.

“Exinda’s solutions offer a more granular level of network traffic management and reporting than the other options we examined, and we have found the management interface to be more intuitive, providing an immediate actionable view of what is happening within the network,” said Jonathan Harris, ICT Operations Manager at Tamar Science Park, delivery partner to Pool Innovation Centre. “We are now able to make more informed decisions on future network design enhancements. The Exinda solution has also helped us to save money by optimising our current network, and will help us ensure that we generate a rapid return on infrastructure investments.”

The integration of Exinda’s 6060 with the Pool Innovation Centre network was completed in less than two days, with the support of Microcomms Professional Services.
