Datapower WAXPN Core Functionality – Akamai

SureRoute for Performance: Choose the most effective route between edge and origin servers for optimum delivery performance

Prefetching: Reduces the number of long-haul round trips and total time required to retrieve embedded content, eliminating a major source of latency for page rendering

Transport Protocol Optimization: Tunes the parameter that govern communications between Akamai server and end users in order to increase the performance of those connections

Compression: Compress content before it is sent to the end-user is especially effective at reducing transfer times for HTML content to users on slower connections, because application pages are often light on graphics; this technique can be particularly effective for improving performance of transactional content.

Cache Optimization: Managed Services will provide a cache control feature to set the cacheability of content.
