For larger networks, a single point of installation gives adminstrators centralized management and control of network resource allocation, providing greater flexibility and security over client-side solutions.
The server runs on the gateway computer and controls all user traffic between the internet and intranet. No client software or configuration is needed except for the manager application which can be installed on any machine for remote management of the server.
The product can also be deployed in server-free mode which is suitable for networks that use a hardware modem or router instead of a gateway computer. All traffic is processed by a thin client application that spreads bandwidth evenly across active clients.
In the diagram on the left, each client receives 33% of total internet speed. When one of the clients finishes using the network resource the remaining two computers are given 50% each.
