Citrix SD-WAN Platforms

Citrix SD-WAN 4100 and 5100 WANOP Appliances

Citrix SD-WAN 4100,5100 WANOP appliances are high-performance WAN accelerators for busy datacenters. These appliances combine multiple virtual accelerator instances with a single virtual instance of the NetScaler load-balancer, providing the performance of multiple SD-WAN WANOP appliances in a single package.

Citrix SD-WAN 4100, 5100 WANOP WAN accelerators are the high end of the Citrix SD-WAN product line. They are designed to accelerate sites with WAN links with speeds more than 1 Gbps, especially busy datacenters that communicate with many branch and regional sites.

A single SD-WAN WANOP 4100, 5100 appliance can support WAN speeds of up to 2 Gbps and up to 5000 XenApp/XenDesktop users.

For datacenters needing even more performance, multiple SD-WAN WANOP 4100/5100 appliances can be deployed as a load-balanced array using the WCCP clustering feature.

Citrix SD-WAN WANOP 4100, 5100 is recommended at the hub of a hub-and-spoke deployment, where smaller appliances are used at the spokes, whenever the link speed or the number of XenApp/XenDesktop users is higher than can be supported by a smaller appliance.

DC to DC Replication

If you require a secondary data center, SD-WAN WANOP 4000, 5000 appliances can provide optimization for Data-Center to Data-Center replication. This optimization improves replication time and reduces bandwidth consumption.
