Public Sector — Providing Better Service to Internal Staff and the Public
Organisations operating in the public sector have to provide an efficient service, not only to their own staff but also to members of the public. This extends to their operation of the organisation's WAN, which has to deliver applications and data in an effective manner. Public sector organisations and government agencies increasingly have service level targets to meet and their performance is often judged by how well they meet those targets.
The problem is that public sector organisations are accountable to the public and have limited budgets, meaning they are unable to spend large sums of money on improving the performance of their network. This rules out upgrading the WAN to high speed, high capacity lines and requires that an alternative solution has to be sought.
Sangfor's range of proven WAN optimisation products and network management tools provides a cost-effective solution to a complex problem. Its WAN optimisation devices use compression and caching strategies to reduce network traffic and acceleration proxies to improve WAN performance even more. The company's web-based tools monitor and manage the network effectively, identifying applications that are too demanding of resources, setting policies to control and prioritise traffic, managing and fine-tuning bandwidth. This ensures that critical applications are allocated the necessary bandwidth to complete on time while non-essential traffic gets a lower priority.
The result is a WAN that operates at peak efficiency and delivers required information when required. This ensures not only that staff productivity is improved but also that a better service is provided to the public at minimum cost, with service level targets more likely to be achieved.
