What is Intelligent Compression?

Intelligent compression removes redundant patterns from a data stream to improve application performance. This technique is commonly used for Web applications to help reduce bandwidth needs and improve end-user response times.

The F5 BIG-IP® product family can target specific applications for compression to give the greatest possible benefit to end users. The BIG-IP system monitors TCP round-trip times to calculate user latency, allowing BIG-IP to devote more power to compressing traffic for those who need it most.
