The RISC Networks Solution

By utilizing RISC Networks’ proprietary platform and Unified Correlation Engine Logic (UCEL), RISC Networks and SyCom Technologies quickly identified opportunities to improve performance, plan for smooth transitions in their network and optimize their IT infrastructure. Using the produced data also helped Luck Companies identify the WAN acceleration product that suited their needs.
