The WXC Integrated Services Module (WXC ISM 200) provides WAN acceleration on a J Series Services Router running JUNOS Software. The integration of application acceleration with branch routing platforms provides a consolidated solution for the branch office. The WXC ISM 200 is a LAN-based network device that enhances the throughput of WAN circuits by addressing the three constraints on WAN performance—bandwidth, latency, and application contention—and provides reporting and visibility into WAN traffic and throughput.
The WXC ISM 200 is installed in a J Series chassis like a Physical Interface Module (PIM), but unlike a PIM, it does not provide any physical interfaces. The module is controlled by the WX operating system (WXOS) software rather than the JUNOS Software.
A WXC ISM 200 or WX/WXC device must be installed on each side of a WAN circuit.
