Shape up your WAN traffic
Traffic across WAN connections always seems to grow faster than available bandwidth. Tools to help optimize application usage of available bandwidth continue to increase in capability and sophistication. Both 8e6 Technologies' TurboPipe NP T100 and Packeteer's PacketShaper 9500 appliances offer traffic monitoring and control, using a sophisticated variety of possible criteria for shaping traffic. They can control traffic based on source, destination, type of application, and more, giving the administrator plenty of flexibility in prioritizing the most important traffic and restricting unwanted traffic such as peer-to-peer file sharing or network gaming.
