man

Maori for SOVEREIGNTY.

MAN. A human being. This definition includes not only the adult male sex of the human species, but women and children; examples: "of offences against man, some are more immediately against the king, other's more immediately against the subject." Hawk. P. C. book 1, c. 2, s. 1. Offences against the life of man come under the general name of homicide, which in our law signifies the killing of a man by a man." Id. book 1, c. 8, s. 2.
     2. In a more confined sense, man means a person of the male sex; and sometimes it signifies a male of the human species above the age of puberty. Vide Rape. It was considered in the civil or Roman law, that although man and person are synonymous in grammar, they had a different acceptation in law; all persons were men, but all men, for example, slaves, were not persons, but things. Vide Barr. on the Stat. 216, note.

By mitigating the impact latency and eliminating up to 99 percent of information that would otherwise traverse the WAN, the NX-5500 dramatically reduces replication times for virtually all disaster recovery and backup applications.
Further, unlike the Juniper and Riverbed appliances, the Orbital 6000 does not create tunnels over the WAN between remote appliances to perform optimization.
The Digi Connect WAN IA is supported by the Digi Connectware(R) Manager, enterprise-class management software that runs on a customer's central server for managing Digi Connect WAN devices.
Featuring an embedded four-port Ethernet switch, two RS-232 serial ports and one USB port, the ConnectPort WAN enables many different kinds of devices to connect to a central site using a single wireless connection.
Acceleration of the TCP protocol by providing local acknowledgements and transparent WAN re-transmissions to reduce the impact of network latency and packet loss, as well as large window sizes to enable maximum throughput for broadband high-latency connections;
file download/upload, directory browsing and remote Microsoft file access) much more efficiently across a WAN.
The AutoOptimizer technology automatically and dynamically configures the TotalTransport software to select the best combination of acceleration technologies -- including flow control, compression, service class policies, and application-specific optimizations for CIFS or FTP -- and to ensure correct parameter tuning according to the characteristics of the application, the data or the WAN link.
The same operation could suffer a latency penalty of more than two minutes over a very fast 1MB WAN circuit that has an 80ms delay--a delay that most users would consider to be unacceptable.
It's clear from these findings that WAN outsourcing is part of the growing ASP trend," says Mike Janowiak, Senior Director of publications at the International Engineering Consortium.
By employing unique protocol acceleration techniques that address WAN latency, Packeteer's SkyX Accelerator 750 enables data transfers that fully utilize the available bandwidth on high performance OC12 WAN links to accelerate data at rates up to 622 Mbps.
