Allot <http://www.allot.com> also makes a comparable product. I don't
know these systems in detail, because I don't use them. There are
probably others, but Allot and Packeteer and the two most popular that
I'm aware of.
On a side note, these boxes are increasingly popular in educational
environments. We've been (successfully so far) keeping them out of our
environment in the name of higher design ideals such as maintaining the
e2e principle and network simplicity. Its mostly paid off, but we
continue to fight for ways to avoid saturation at our border. We try to
continuously get more capacity and educate users, but its very difficult
to stay ahead of the game for very long . People talk about a bandwidth
glut, but I can't see it from where I'm sitting.
