WebMux network traffic management appliances play a critical role for mid- to enterprise level unified communications (UC) environments by providing high-reliability and high-availability in the distribution of network traffic to their intended destinations. The role of WebMux with UC applications allows people to connect and stay connected regardless of their location for common services such as instant Messaging (IM), presence information, video conferencing, meetings or telephony services.

What is WebMux?
WebMux is a powerful traffic management appliance for managing and directing Layers 4-7 local network traffic. Other common names for traffic management products include load balancers (LB), hardware load balancers (HLB), network load balancers (NLB), local traffic managers (LTM), and application delivery controllers (ADC). WebMux provides high-reliability and high-availability traffic to intended destinations by means of placing development emphasis on intensive algorithms that are built on the powerful 64-bit processor platform providing feature-rich performance using the best in class server-grade hardware that offers up to 16-core CPU processing power and 10 Gigabit Ethernet interface options.

Why WebMux?
WebMux appliances are easily configured and added to a local network as a true plug-and-run appliance. With an easy graphical user interface (GUI) design setup, trouble-free high performance, low maintenance, and ongoing new feature additions and enhancements, WebMux meets the most demanding traffic load balancing needs for an extensive TCP-based range of applications and services.

WebMux is the best affordable 64-bit strength load balancing solution for managing, controlling, and securing local network traffic.
