Product Brief

WarpGateway™ — TCP Optimization Proxy Appliance

WarpGateway™ from Badu Networks is designed to optimize your existing wireless networks without costly network equipment or end user device upgrades. It is a transparent optimization proxy that sits between an Internet modem and local Wi-Fi network (see diagram below), available in a compact form factor that offers a simple plug-and-play installation.

Product Brief

WarpGateway™ is scalable and offered in three different models to match your networking needs:

  • WG-100          100Mbps throughput
  • WG-100V        100Mbps throughput and VLAN support
  • WG-100VB      100Mbps throughput, VLAN support, Failover/Bypass

Powered by Badu Networks’ core technology WarpTCP™, WarpGateway™ improves download and uploads by up to 100% depending on network conditions. Performance for WarpGateway™ depends on network variables like round trip time (RTT), packet loss %, available bandwidth, size of content, and other factors.

WarpTCP™ — Smarter Congestion Control

TCP was invented 35+ years ago with guaranteed delivery of data in mind, it was never designed for use in massive cloud infrastructures or today’s overly crowded wireless networks. Given the jittery nature of today’s highly-shared wireless networks, TCP often overreacts to congestion and other network variations which results in a drastic drop in data throughput. This overreacting causes a reduction in utilized available bandwidth, which results in a generally poor user experience.

WarpTCP™ is a set of intelligent algorithms that maximize TCP throughput in the face of network variations such as delay, jitter, packet loss and random bandwidth fluctuation. It was especially designed to maintain high TCP throughput in wireless networks such as LTE and Wi-Fi. Compared to competing TCP acceleration solutions, WarpTCP™ does not overreact to temporary or false-alarm congestion, minimizes re-transmissions, and recovers faster from a congestion event.


WarpGateway™ offers the following features:

  • TCP Optimization Proxy Appliance
  • Up to 100Mbps throughput
  • Improves downloads and uploads by 20% – 100%
  • Plug and play installation using WarpAdmin™ management tool
  • Scalable product family to serve SoHo, SMB, or Large Enterprises
  • VLAN support (WG-100Vx)
  • Failover Bypass Support (WG-100VB)


The WarpGateway™ benchmarks were measured across a variety of network conditions to quantify the benefit of WarpTCP™ technology for enterprise Wi-Fi networks.

Traffic passing through WarpGateway™ appliance showed up to 100% faster download and upload times compared to standard TCP, regardless of file size or network conditions.
