Talk Abstract:
Today's enterprises are geographically dispersed, however data is increasingly centralized due to security and operational concerns such as backups.  As a result, application performance is highly dependent on the WAN characteristics such as latency, bandwidth, and error rates.  In this presentation, we will explore how network emulation can be used to accurately predict application performance, optimize the network equipment selection and configuration, and properly select appropriate network link
characteristics for optimizing cost and performance.
