"This is a significant advancement in the WAN optimization space, because accurate response time data is essential to ensuring WAN optimization deployments are fully optimizing application performance for the end user, and no other WAN optimization solution offers this," said Dr. Cathy Fulton - co-founder and executive vice president as well as chief technology officer of NetQoS. "Current WAN optimization technologies obscure application response times through locally acknowledged TCP sessions, making it difficult to quantify the real benefits of a WAN optimization deployment." "NetQoS and Cisco have developed a truly end-to-end solution where application performance statistics are captured and reported from the end user to the data center."

"Cisco WAAS integrates transparently within customers’ networks, and the management interface we have developed with NetQoS extends that transparency to performance reporting data, giving our customers accurate insight into how to best leverage our technology to maximize application performance and remote user productivity," said Dr. Issy Ben-Shaul - CTO of the application delivery business unit at Cisco. Using NetQoS Performance Center modules with Cisco WAAS will help enable IT organizations to validate the results of WAN optimization deployments and: 1. Identify and prioritize the network segments and applications that will benefit from a WAN optimization deployment. 2. Obtain before and after measurements for pilot testing of optimization. 3. Determine the impact optimization has on application performance and data volume across WAN segments and in the data center. 4. Troubleshoot problems after rolling out optimization. 5. Calculate the ROI of WAN optimization deployments.

This initiative was driven by 75 enterprise customers who approached Cisco and NetQoS about integrating WAN optimization and performance reporting metrics. What do you think of this initiative?
