    10 tips for boosting network performance

    To keep your network humming, we've outlined 10 areas where tweaking and moderate investment can lead to significant performance gains.

    Performance tip No. 1: Speed up that WAN
    IT has long been caught in the web of leased lines and costly WAN charges.

    Cogent Communications is one of several providers boasting a significant fiber footprint around the United States. Tapping these outlets might mean a substantial increase in site-to-site bandwidth at a significant cost savings -- it's all a matter of location. Even bringing a few sites into a new WAN design can save enough money to increase bandwidth to the sites that aren't accessible by the same carrier.
    You may wind up running your own VPN between these sites, but if the carrier's SLA is strong enough and the network is as low-latency as it should be, this won't be an issue. Think of the benefits of 100Mbps across all your sites and a WAN bill downsized by half.
