BranchCache is a wide area network (WAN) bandwidth optimization technology that is included in some editions of the Windows Server 2008 R2 and Windows 7 operating systems. To optimize WAN bandwidth, BranchCache copies content from your main office content servers and caches the content at branch office locations, allowing client computers at branch offices to access the content locally rather than over the WAN.

This learning roadmap provides you with links to prerequisite information you need to understand and deploy BranchCache, and also provides links to BranchCache information from level 100 to level 300.

In addition there are links to optional information that will enhance your ability to expand and manage your BranchCache deployment.

"If you'e new to BranchCache, this [documentation] can help you identify what you need to learn to fully understand how to deploy and troubleshoot BranchCache," Microsoft notes.

"It includes prerequisite topics that cover a variety of networking and IT infrastructure fundamentals. You must understand the prerequisite technologies first, because BranchCache builds upon them and assumes an understanding of them.

Afterwards, you can begin learning about BranchCache through the resources in the Level 100, 200, and 300 sections."
