To improve your end user's experience with downloading web-based applications (such as accessing Microsoft SharePoint servers) from a remote office, you can deploy a pair of BIG-IP systems on which you have installed and provisioned both WAN Optimization Manager (WOM) and WebAccelerator. Deploying a WebAccelerator system in a remote location stages content closer to the end user, resulting in faster downloads for both web pages and documents. You can use this implementation for Internet, intranet, and extranet applications.
You must set up WOM symmetrically, that is, you must configure it on both sides of the WAN. You can configure the WebAccelerator module symmetrically or asymmetrically, depending on your network needs.
To configure WebAccelerator asymmetrically, follow the instructions only for the data center BIG-IP system.
