IT infrastructure optimization requires centralized management. Citrix Branch Repeater, Enterprise Edition offers Windows Management Interface (WMI) providers for WAN optimization functionality that work in parallel with WMI providers for the operating system. The result is comprehensive, centralized management of branch service infrastructure. Using solutions such as Microsoft System Center Operation Manager, an entire enterprise network of Citrix Branch Repeaters can be centrally and seamlessly managed. Consummate management flexibility is available using WMI scripting under Windows PowerShell.
For deployment flexibility, Citrix Branch Repeater can join the branch network with in-line, policy-based routing or WCCP (Web Cache Communication Protocol) modes. Branch Repeater is transparent to both applications and the network. All accelerated application traffic flows traverse the WAN without intrusive tunneling technology, which can obscure vital IP and TCP header information. If inline deployment and high availability requirements demand it, Citrix Branch Repeater is available in configurations including a Bypass Network Interface Card (NIC) that provides continuous access to the WAN in the unlikely event of an appliance offline state.
