The Windows Server 2008 R2 and Windows® 7 operating systems include networking enhancements that make it easier for users to get connected and stay connected regardless, of their location or type of network. These enhancements also enable IT professionals to meet the needs of their business in a secure, reliable, and flexible way.
You can find information about new networking features for Windows Server 2008 R2 and Windows® 7 in What’s New in Networking, in the Windows Server TechCenter Library: New networking features covered in the topic include:
  • DirectAccess, which enables users to access an enterprise network without the extra step of initiating a virtual private network (VPN) connection.
  • VPN Reconnect, which automatically reestablishes a VPN connection as soon as Internet connectivity is restored, saving users from reentering their credentials and re-creating the VPN connection.
  • BranchCache, which enables updated content from file and Web servers on a wide area network (WAN) to be cached on computers at a local branch office, increasing application response time and reducing WAN traffic.
  • URL-based Quality of Service (QoS), which enables you to assign a priority level to traffic based on the URL from which the traffic originates.
  • Mobile broadband device support, which provides a driver-based model for devices that are used to access a mobile broadband network.
