waas mobile client ---------waas appliance---------wan---------waas appliance---------waas mobile server---------------applications/servers
What will happen in this topology? Who is going to perform the acceleration function?
Can waas mobile client/server talk to waas appliance?
Waas Mobile and WAAS are going to be both optimizing traffic in this case.
While WAAS mobile will tunneled all the traffic so Optimized data is transmitted over UDP port 1182 and session initiation and control uses TCP port 1182.
WAAS appliance will perform same transparent method, by applying option 33 (0x21) and changing the tcp sequence so both WAE's (dc and remote site) can see each other and apply optimization to the tcp flow.
Since WAAS mobile will have already compressed data initially, when the tcp flow hist WAAS appliance devices I expect that the optimization there will be minimum.
You might consider to have WAAS Mobile next to your VPN hubs, so remote desktop/laptops are able to get optimization when ingress in your network and won't waste WAAS appliances resources which will perform double optimization, first in waas mobile then in waas itself.
Hope the information helps.
Thank for taking time to answer my question Rubens!
In my previous email, i listed a second question - Can waas mobile client/server talk to waas appliance?
I guess it is not, am i right?
Yes you are right. WAAS Mobile Client / Server doesn't / can't talk to WAAS Appliance.
WAAS Mobile and WAAS Appliance are 2 different solutions and don't interoperate.
