I'm surprised no one on the list is actually using them. Perhaps it's
just not suitable for satellite links.

The expand appliance is an advanced cache (and compression) engine in
which the data is cached on both ends.

I've heard 200%-400% increases when using Expand with the ICA
protocol...
But it, like everything else, can't help high latency connections.

Hello everyone
I'm looking at a problem where we'd like to get a remote site with a
128K satellite link to be able to host up to 15 users all on Citrix.
Taking the general rule of thumb to be 20k per session, I would need
300k of bandwidth. Upping the link isn't a solution.

The Expand accelerators (www.expand.com) seem too good to be true, the
sales docs suggest that they could easily get 15 Citrix users on a 128k
link. Does anyone have any real world experience with Expand, good or
bad?

Thanks

Russell
