WAN optimization, therefore, is crucial for the success of business applications to deliver proper application capabilities across multiple locations or topologies.

Executive Summary

•The Asia-Pacific (APAC) wide area network (WAN) optimization controller market registered a modest year-over-year (YOY) growth of X% in 2012. The market had a sluggish start in 2012, which left many vendors questioning the future of the WAN optimization controller market.
•With the prevalence of the Internet and Internet-based applications, the traditional WAN design was transformed, with the Internet often considered the new WAN. These changes prompted many key WAN optimization controller (WOC) vendors to extend their portfolios or incorporate complementary capabilities into the platform.
•WAN optimization, therefore, is crucial for the success of business applications to deliver proper application capabilities across multiple locations or topologies. For instance, with the enterprise mobility and bring-your-own-device (BYOD) trends in APAC, many WOC vendors introduced or enhanced the Internet or mobile acceleration functionalities in addition to their solutions.
•The service provider vertical continued to lead in spending in the APAC WAN optimization controller market in 2012, accounting for a total share of X%. With more service providers offering managed WOC services on top of traditional services, WOC spending responsibility is expected to fall on service providers.
•The WAN optimization controller market is transforming from hardware-heavy appliances to cloud services, with managed WOC services and cloud-based WOC services rising in popularity.
•The APAC WAN optimization controller market is expected to grow at a compound annual growth rate (CAGR) of X%, reaching a total revenue of $Xbillion in 2019. Moving forward, the strong association between the WOC solution and its ability to enable cloud infrastructure or cloud-based applications such as Microsoft Office 365 may ensure a stable demand for the WOC technology among APAC enterprises.
