Last week, I blogged on 5 tech-related predictions for 2011. Prediction #4 concerned Internet TV on the tablet. The idea was that tablet users will want to run Internet TV on their tablets, which means massive traffic on 3 and 4G networks. This brings opportunities for vendors such as Citrix, which market soft-appliance-based ADCs (Citrix VPX).
Larry Chaffin over at Network World posted an interesting article on Cisco Subnet which also discusses WAN acceleration– for mobile phones (http://www.networkworld.com/community/blog/hoping-wan-acceleration-ces-mobile-phones-hea?source=NWWNLE_nlt_voices_networking_2011-01-10). Well worth reading if you’re interested in application performance.
