Your organization relies on critical applications, like ERP, CRM, email and web-based collaboration, for success. When your business is global, managing application performance is a huge challenge. Arcstar Universal One Application Acceleration allows you to meet the performance demands of branch offices, remote workers and mobile users without installing on-premises equipment.
Arcstar Universal One Cloud-based Application Performance Acceleration uses network function virtualization (NFV) technology to minimize end-user performance problems and reduce costs. It ensures application traffic is optimized to make full use of available network bandwidth and eliminates TCP slow start problems and application chattiness.
Cloud-Based Application Performance Acceleration Benefits
- 5 to 13X improvement in ERP and CRM applications like Oracle, SAP, Workday and Salesforce.
- 5 to 17X improvement in email (Microsoft Outlook).
- 7 to 25X improvement in file sharing applications like Microsoft Excel, Word and PowerPoint.
- 6 to 10X improvement in web-based collaboration applications like Cisco WebEx and Microsoft Office SharePoint.
- 10 to 25X improvement in backup and storage applications, including IBM, Google, Amazon, HP and Rackspace.
Arcstar Universal One Application Flow Monitoring supports your system optimization efforts by monitoring traffic, types of applications and destination IP addresses. With this information, we can help you assess the environment and actively prevent performance degradation.
The service is available in 160 countries worldwide.

Simple, 24/7 management access through a web-based portal.
A flexible low-cost solution that fits your budget.
Arcstar Universal One Internet VPN consolidates MPLS and Internet-based networks into a single, end-to-end, managed hybrid network. Corporate network traffic can use the MPLS, Internet VPN or both, simultaneously. For example, restricting critical data, ERP and financial application traffic to MPLS and using Internet VPN for email, web and non-critical data.
Interconnecting Cloud and Cloud-based Network Services
The Internet VPN hybrid network offers any-to-any communication, enabling you to interconnect multiple sites, including Enterprise Cloud hosted private clouds and third-party cloud services, like Amazon AWS and Microsoft Azure. It also provides seamless connectivity to our cloud-based, software defined networking (SDN) and network function virtualization (NFV) enabled network services.
Dynamic Multipoint Virtual Private Networking (DMVPN)
Arcstar Universal One Internet VPN uses Dynamic Multipoint Virtual Private Networking (DMVPN) technology, with globally distributed DMVPN controllers integrated into our MPLS backbone. DMVPN is a tunneling technology that brings flexibility, scalability and discoverability to any-to-any network connections. The technology can be combined with IPSEC encryption for increased security. DMVPN enables you to optimize performance, throughput and latency for any-to-any communication between any site (“site-to-site” traffic).
Arcstar Universal One Internet VPN turns the Internet into a cost-effective network transport. The technology supports any Internet access option, including Internet Service Providers (ISP) that use cost-effective dynamic IP addresses.
Arcstar Universal One Multi-Cloud Connect lets you connect enterprise networks to public cloud services, like Amazon AWS, Microsoft Azure and Microsoft Office 365, without sending network traffic over the public Internet.
Infrastructure-as-a-Service (IaaS) and Software-as-a-Service (SaaS) solutions, like AWS, Azure and Office 365, offer IT and business users compelling flexibility and agility. However, these solutions are often prohibited due to the high risk of exposing corporate network traffic to Internet-borne threats. Even in situations where access to public cloud services is permitted, application performance at remote offices is often inconsistent due to congestion and lack of traffic prioritization for communications flowing over the Internet.
Arcstar Universal One Multi-Cloud Connect establishes a direct connection from our Arcstar Universal One MPLS network to major cloud IaaS and SaaS providers. This enables enterprise network traffic to bypass the public Internet, avoiding security threats and providing consistently good performance.
