Protocol Optimization Licensing Program

Microsoft has a variety of protocol licensing programs that permit licensees to create interoperable client and server products. However, in the case of WAN optimization controller devices, licensees may want to break interoperability to increase throughput between two points.

The Protocol Optimization Licensing Program (POLP) permits the modification of Microsoft standard protocol packets for such optimizations for the following protocol groups:

  • Windows Server and Windows clients

  • Microsoft Exchange Server

  • Microsoft Office SharePoint Server

  • 2007 Microsoft Office system

  • Microsoft SQL Server 2008
