Must-Have Optimization For Today’s Networks And Applications

SMB Challenges

Wi-Fi networks are the most volatile because they’re subject to external factors that are the hardest to control. RF interference, fading, and channel access conflict driven by a sudden increase in users create jitter these networks treat as congestion, slowing traffic to prevent data loss until throughput collapses, even when plenty of bandwidth is available. Connections drop, videos pause and applications stall. Hotels, restaurants, cafes and other small businesses, as well as larger firms with branch offices all struggle with this. As more OTT 4K video content is consumed over Wi-Fi, it will only get worse.  In addition, local Wi-Fi jitter can cause throughput to collapse over the entire network path back to the application server.  The end result is poor employee productivity and unhappy customers.

Most network administrators try to address these challenges by installing faster, higher capacity 5GHz access points (APs) to provide better performance for more mobile devices in the same Wi-Fi network. While this creates more bandwidth, it doesn’t address the root problem of jitter. In fact, adding more high speed APs can make it worse. 5GHz signals are much shorter range than previous generation 2.4GHz signals, and they have a harder time penetrating walls and other obstacles, resulting in more fading.  Finally, not all end-user devices support 5GHz.


WarpGateway™ leverages Badu Networks’ patented technology to deliver up to 4X improvement in upload and download speeds on existing Wi-Fi networks for all types of traffic – encrypted, unencrypted or compressed.  It achieves this by eliminating throughput collapse due to jitter caused by RF interference, fading and other factors. WarpGateway is installed between the WAN gateway modem providing the internet connection, and the Wi-FI AP/Router. No changes to clients or servers are required.

As an option for larger businesses, WarpEngine™ can be deployed at on-premises data centers to eliminate the impact of jitter common with today’s streaming fast data and web applications, working in combination with WarpGateway at each branch office to filter out local Wi-Fi network jitter that can cause throughput to collapse over the entire network path.

Businesses struggling with poor cloud application performance can deploy WarpVM™ in any public or private cloud environment to filter out the impact of jitter due to VM crosstalk and hypervisor transfer delays. WarpVM works in conjunction with WarpGateway™ installed behind the firewall to filter out the negative impact of local Wi-Fi network jitter that can lead to throughput collapse over the entire network path to the cloud.

Use Cases

  • Hotels, restaurants, and cafes struggling with poor Wi-Fi performance, particularly when they have a sudden surge in customers using their Wi-Fi network
  • Small and medium sized businesses whose employees and customers use Wi-Fi
  • Larger enterprises with remote branch offices struggling with Wi-Fi performance issues. Left unchecked, Wi-Fi jitter can trigger a throughput reduction across the entire path back to the application server in the corporate data center, impacting productivity across the organization.
