Traffic Shaping

Typical use cases for traffic shaping

  • Enforcing usage policies and SLAs by limiting the bandwidth of certain types of traffic, or by guaranteeing priority access to specific network application flows like data replication, VoIP, NAS, VPN, streaming media, mobile broadband devices, or Web servers.
  • Eliminating packet loss due to microbursts(*1 which are brief sub-millisecond spikes of very high bandwidth utilization that may overrun the ingress buffer of a receiving device, resulting in a substantial decrease in throughput or an undesirable increase in application response times.
  • Providing a tiered or measured service level model to regulate incremental Internet access speeds for virtual hosting, co-location, hotels, entertainment venues, or WiFi/WiMAX providers.

*1 Microburst
An unusually large amount of packets output intermittently in an extremely short period of time that saturates your network and adds to latency.
