GLOSSARY

Advanced Compression

Advanced compression increases application performance across a network. In contrast to packet-based compression, advanced compression operates at the session layer (layer 5 of the seven-layer OSI model), compressing homogenous data sets while addressing all application types. This approach generates higher system throughput and minimizes latency.

F5 BIG-IP® WAN Optimization Module™ combines advanced compression with a system architecture built for high performance. BIG-IP is specifically designed to address the needs of bandwidth-intensive networks.
