Maximize WAN performance with a smart software solution.

As software that is easily deployed on dedicated hardware, the SonicWALL® WAN Acceleration Live CD (WXA) 500 allows organizations with small offices of up to 20 users to enhance WAN application performance while leveraging existing infrastructure.

Businesses aiming to significantly enhance WAN application performance while using their own hardware can benefit from the SonicWALL WAN Acceleration Live CD (WXA) 500. Similar to traditional SonicWALL WXA hardware solutions, the WXA 500 reduces application latency, conserves network bandwidth, and improves the end user experience—only it’s delivered as software for use on a dedicated hardware platform.

Unlike standalone acceleration products, the SonicWALL WXA 500 seamlessly integrates with SonicWALL E-Class Network Security Appliance (NSA), NSA and TZ Series Next-Generation Firewall solutions to offer the unique combined benefit of both prioritizing and minimizing application traffic between sites, resulting in optimal network performance.

WXA 500 WAN Acceleration Software Live CD Features

Deployment

Designed for up to 20 users, the WXA 500 Live CD is a bootable image of the WXA software and can easily be deployed on dedicated hardware.

Bandwidth optimization

The WXA 500 remembers data that has been transferred previously, and through data de-duplication, replaces repeated byte sequences with an identifier to reduce application latency and conserve bandwidth.

Data compression

The WXA 500 increases network performance while reducing latency by compressing data sent across the WAN.

Data compression.

When deployed in conjunction with SonicWALL Application Intelligence and Control Service, WXA solutions offer the unique combined benefit of both prioritizing application traffic and minimizing traffic between sites, resulting in optimal network performance.

Greater control

Businesses retain the ability to access, make changes, or install other applications to their system. System administrators retain full control of the program and the installed software.

Reduced total

By improving the efficiency and overall utilization of existing WAN bandwidth, the WXA 500 helps businesses avoid incurring higher monthly expenses to increase WAN bandwidth capacity.
