We have been doing some testing using the Silverlight map in a degraded network environment and found that when running on a network with higher latency and lower bandwidth, eg 512k or worse (eg cellular data networks), the map definitely preforms poorly. This is expected, however, I was looking for ways to potentially improve performance when running on a degraded network.
I am looking for any ideas that might help.
One thing that occurred to me was a way to have layers persistently client side cash tiles, which would help improve performance over time.
Thanks for any suggestions..
