Internet Congestion Manager
- Responsive Internet even during saturation.
LucidView’s Internet Congestion Manager allows you to ensure responsive Internet without having to purchase additional bandwidth. This solution works optimally with a 1:1 content ratio.
We provide the tools to shape your bandwidth so that streaming services, updates and other bandwidth intensive applications are able to function without latency, while not negatively impacting business critical applications that require responsive connectivity, even during times of line saturation.
The amount of bandwidth these streaming services utilise is significant and cause the Internet to become saturated. If left unmanaged they can create huge latency for other Internet related activity. If you’re ISP you are likely getting complaints about response times. Increasing bandwidth is costly an unlikely to solve the problem.
Congestion Management is a feature of both the MikroTik Portal Pro and the Guardian Proxy server (South Africa only)
Turn your MikroTik Router into an effective Congestion Manager. This feature works ideally where you have a 1:1 contention ratio.
This feature gives service providers the ability to manage streaming so that it does not impact more important Internet activity. You, the service provider can determine how much bandwidth streaming services are using during congestion times. Where bandwidth is unmanaged, typically one needs to increase the available bandwidth when existing line reaches 60% to 70%, this is costly and does little to resolve the issue. Having the tools to manage the saturated links is a much more effective way to deal with congestion.
For example: Allocate 5% of available bandwidth to streaming services. When the line is saturated, streaming will still function without latency, however the resolution will be automatically lowered. When the line is not being used by more critical applications, the resolution will automatically increase.
With the LucidView Congestion Manager you can decide what categories are the most important and allow them to take priority during times of saturation. Using this tool, the Internet will always remain responsive, even when congested.
LucidView has a number of categories you can select and shape……..read more
LucidView has a database of some 40 million sites already categorised and our web crawler adds new sites everyday.
Using our Congestion Manager you can prioritise or completely block all of the above. You can also set time based rules that allow certain categories to be accessible at certain times.
