What's the difference between an 'X' and an 'O' in the above table?  Would be good for you to add a legend indicating this.

Chris Yoo 2017-07-11 12:41:41

Hi Ralph, my understanding is as follows:

 - X : not supported

 - O : supported

Nikhil Tambe 2017-09-06 01:51:06

Very nice summary, do you have details on the report ?

e.g - When you say WAN Optimization support what all does it iinclude ?Compression > De-Duplication ?
