Bandwidth / Traffic Flow Solution Hardware

Hi Guys,

We are looking for some advice on a bandwidth management solution that we can implement on our WAN network in some form of 'Pass Through' mode to split bandwidth of a leased line into multiple subnets.
Ideally we would be looking at a hardware solution that will give us the ability to do the above, it doesn't need to do any form of protocol prioritisation.

We currently use a piece of software AstroFlow Guard by Netsoft, and this has worked perfectly well for us but support is limited and we are coming to the limits of the software.

Any help or guidance on solutions for this would be greatly appreciated.

Cheers

In Short we are a small ISP that has a 100MB leased line that we split up into various differing bandwidth options all around subnets as we have a /23 subnet to work with in total.

What options would we be looking at with Riverbed??

Why not just implementing shaping or rate-limiting on your routers, on the ports towards customers?

Ideally, the router on the uplink side of the 100M leased line should do it, but if you do not control that, your can do it on your own router towards customers.

Hello yellowbus,

I quickly surfed packet controller and it is the same as experts adviced above..its an optimizer\accelerator..thus I don't think any reason for deletion.

You might get the right product for your requirement however logical advice given by experts is correct.
