SonicWALL WXA 4000

SonicWALL WXA 4000

Streamline performance and boost user experience. When used with select Dell firewalls, WXA 4000 prioritizes and minimizes app traffic between sites. Easily deployed to support 240 users, 1,200 connections.

Significantly enhance WAN performance and user experience.

Eliminate performance bottlenecks from data- and file-sharing applications. By only transmitting new or changed data, Dell WXA solutions optimize the bandwidth you already have. When integrated with select Dell firewalls, WXA minimizes and prioritizes app traffic between sites.

Overview

Speed your application performance

Eliminate bottlenecks from data- and file-sharing applications. The Dell SonicWALL WAN Acceleration Appliance (WXA) Series helps you efficiently manage your bandwidth, and significantly enhance WAN application performance for remote and branch office users, without compromising security.

Boost WAN application performance.

The WXA Series reduces application latency and conserves bandwidth, enabling you to significantly enhance WAN application performance and improve the end user experience for distributed organizations with remote and branch offices. Prioritize and minimize traffic between sits and optimize your network’s performance.

Conserve network bandwidth.

When integrated with a SonicWALL Next-Generation Firewall (NGFW), the WXA Series remembers data that has been previously transferred, and through data de-duplication, replaces repeated byte sequences with an identifier to reduce application latency and conserve bandwidth.

Wide range of acceleration techniques.

Advanced acceleration features enable the WXA to provide data caching, metadata caching, Web (HTTP) caching, data-in-flight compression and application traffic prioritization, using QoS, or bandwidth management, on the managing next-generation firewall.

Seamless integration.

Unlike standalone WAN acceleration products, SonicWALL WXA solutions are integrated add-ons to SonicWALL NGFWs. This integrated solution streamlines the placement, deployment, configuration, routing, management, and integration of WXA with other components, such as VPNs.

Flexible deployment.

The WXA supports a wide range of remote, branch and central office deployments, and is available as both a software- and hardware-based solution.
