Exinda, a global provider of next-generation WAN optimization and application assurance solutions, today announced the first solution specifically designed to assure the performance of the Learning Network – networks at schools, colleges, and universities that must meet the academic requirements of their institution as well as the social interaction of the students that study, live, and play within it.

With the introduction of the Education Application Pack for Exinda Edge designed specifically for the Learning Network, educational facilities can now balance both optimization and containment of the myriad types of traffic that cross their networks – whether that be academic (e.g., Blackboard), collaborative (e.g., Moodle), social (e.g., Facebook, Twitter), streaming (e.g., YouTube, Netflix) or administrative.

Exinda is the first and only company on the market to take this strategic application approach to WAN Optimization.
