What is WebMux Network Traffic Manager?

It is all about the user experience on your network and keeping everyone connected(SM)

WebMux plays an important role in the network infrastructure with a core function to manage and deliver securely and reliably local data traffic for applications and services to and from the internal network of servers or server farms (both physical and virtual).


The WebMux Network Traffic Manager is a high capacity and full-featured product that meets the most demanding network traffic load balancing performance needs for an extensive range of TCP and UDP Internet protocol (IP) based applications and services available as an appliance or software edition.   In 2005, Microsoft® chose WebMux as one of the first three hardware load balancer (HLB) to support its Unified Communications (UC) Live Communications Server (LCS)  platform (today’s Skype® for Business Server 2015), because of WebMux’s excellent features, performance, reliability, and affordability.  WebMux has evolved providing load balancing functions to many popular applications from other world-class companies including Cisco®, IBM®, and Oracle®.  The applications and services include Lync® Server, Exchange® Server, SharePoint®, Internet Information Services (IIS) for Windows® Serve, WebLogic®, WebSphere®, UC (unified messaging, IM presence, team collaboration, audio/web/video conferencing, mobility, and VoIP), databases, FTP, POP, terminal servers, and web servers to name a few.

WebMux features are developed on a series of powerful 64-bit processor platforms using intensive algorithms to deliver a full and sophisticated set of load balancing and security features providing high capacity, reliability, and availability to manage, control, and secure local network Layers 4-7 traffic. AVANU uses the best-in-class server-grade hardware with up to 16-core CPU processing power to build WebMux providing outstanding performance and durability.


AVANU adds value by being customer-centric by placing customers at the center of the product design, from the standpoint of the user’s interface, features, and customer support.  The WebMux intuitive setup and configuration wizards remove the need for any scripting and make the deployment of WebMux quick and easy.  The different WebMux models offer performance scalability supporting gigabit to 10-gigabit Ethernet Interfaces and come with a 2-year product warranty (parts and labor) with 1-year product technical support and firmware updates.

WeMux Network Traffic Manager, the affordable full-featured and high capacity performing solution that supports your demanding network traffic load balancing requirements.
