Discover the Difference - WebMux Traffic Management Appliances

WebMux traffic management appliances play a critical role for mid- to enterprise-level unified communications (UC) environments by providing high-reliability and high-availability in the distribution of network traffic to their intended destinations. The role of WebMux with UC applications allows people to connect and stay connected regardless of their location for common services such as instant Messaging (IM), presence information, video conferencing, meetings or telephony services.

What is WebMux?

WebMux is a powerful traffic management appliance for managing and directing Layers 4-7 local network traffic. Other common names for traffic management products include load balancers (LB), hardware load balancers (HLB), network load balancers (NLB), local traffic managers (LTM), and application delivery controllers (ADC). WebMux provides high-reliability and high-availability traffic to intended destinations by means of placing development emphasis on intensive algorithms that are built on the powerful 64-bit processor platform providing feature-rich performance using the best in class server-grade hardware that offers up to 16-core CPU processing power and 10 Gigabit Ethernet interface options.  AVANU_graphic
