Home Resource Center Glossary Application Delivery Networking

Application delivery networking is the practice of creating a framework of technologies that work together to provide the appropriate levels of availability, security, visibility, and acceleration to networked applications. These application delivery networking technologies feature their own proprietary CPUs and generally reside at the network endpoints. They enhance the delivery of applications across the Internet via a variety of optimization techniques.

A key to effective application delivery networking is the application delivery controller (ADC). This device resides in the data center and intelligently monitors and routes traffic based on a number of factors including data values, transport protocol, server availability, and other parameters designated by the client.

The A10 Networks product line of Application Delivery Controllers (ADCs) is designed to help organizations simplify and streamline their approach to application delivery networking.
