Cisco Intelligent WAN (IWAN) with Akamai Connect is a fully integrated solution from Cisco and Akamai that provides the next generation application and network optimization. It integrates the best-in-class advanced WAN optimization and intelligent caching techniques directly into the Cisco integrated services routers with application experience (ISR-AX) at the branch office. It effectively extends the Akamai Intelligent Platform across the last mile from the Internet directly into the branch office with edge caching, thus significantly offloading traffic from the WAN and providing an unparalleled user experience over bandwidth-constrained networks. Akamai Connect turbo charges the application optimization features of IWAN, providing faster content delivery regardless of device, connectivity, or cloud, including the corporate private cloud and the public Internet cloud, where most business traffic traverses.
