Bandwidth Management and Traffic Shaping for Windows

Overview

Bandwidth Controller is a complete bandwidth management solution for IP based networks. It provides network administrators with traffic shaping and flow control capabilities, including automated components for internet allocation and provision.

After installing the product on any gateway or server, access is gained to all internet bandwidth being used by the network. Each traffic stream can be controlled using a combination of prioritization, guaranteed service levels and speed limiting. The classification system allows full shaping for all types of traffic such as VoIP, games, video, web and email.

Architecture

The product consists of a core processor within the IP stack that performs low level bandwidth services like traffic monitoring and speed limiting. Incoming network packets are inspected and queued based on class. The data is later processed by user-defined and automated systems before being returned to the operating system for normal processing.
