Will my T1 WAN connection benefit from WAN optimization?

mangamonster asked
Last Modified: 2012-05-12

We recently moved most of our production servers to a data center, and our WAN is connected via a private T1. We are experiencing quite a bit of lag during peak hours with our file sharing and exchange servers. We have approximately 20-30 users on the network at any given time.

Will our tiny T1 pipe benefit from costly WAN optimization solutions? If so, what are some suggestions for optimizing our WAN on a small business budget? I'm thinking no more than $5k.

Thanks for your time~!
