In Pictures: Top tools for WAN optimisation

Upstarts Exinda and Ipanema challenge network optimisation kingpin, Riverbed

There’s no question that Riverbed knows WAN optimization, and if you’re determined to get the last bit of performance out of every protocol on every network, Steelhead does a great job. However, Riverbed has failed to take the lead in other areas we care about, including traffic management and visibility. Riverbed is our Clear Choice Test winner and merits a spot on every network manager’s short list. But we’re a little concerned that Riverbed might be resting on its laurels rather than being out in front in some of these areas.

STYLISTIC Q702

First impression on unpacking the Q702 test unit was the solid feel and clean, minimalist styling.

STYLISTIC Q572

For work use, Microsoft Word and Excel programs pre-installed on the device are adequate for preparing short documents.

LIFEBOOK UH574

The Fujitsu LifeBook UH574 allowed for great mobility without being obnoxiously heavy or clunky. Its twelve hours of battery life did not disappoint.

STYLISTIC Q702

The screen was particularly good. It is bright and visible from most angles, however heat is an issue, particularly around the Windows button on the front, and on the back where the battery housing is located.

STYLISTIC Q702

My first impression after unboxing the Q702 is that it is a nice looking unit. Styling is somewhat minimalist but very effective. The tablet part, once detached, has a nice weight, and no buttons or switches are located in awkward or intrusive positions.
