Stop the endless cycle of bandwidth upgrades. PacketShaper maximizes application throughput across your existing network infrastructure. Get more done in less time, with fewer performance-related complaints and a higher Quality of Service (QoS) for all networked users.
Capitalize on Server Consolidation
Consolidating servers from remote sites to centralized data centers makes sense, yet the additional traffic loads require accurate classification, monitoring and shaping before any benefits can be realized. PacketShaper identifies and controls common traffic-including CIFS, VoIP, CRM, Web and P2P-while also tracking Microsoft®'s underlying CIFS changes in R2.
Realize True QoS for IP Telephony and VoIP
IP Telephony (IPT) and Voice/Video over IP (VoIP) implementation vary between an enterprise and its employees, impacting each network differently. Successful deployment hinges on guaranteed bandwidth and QoS, as well as fitting more calls onto a limited WAN resource. PacketShaper effectively manages critical IPT protocols, delivering WAN capacity and true QoS functionality to ensure the highest quality end-to-end communication for each call.
Deliver and Extend on MPLS Promise
PLS and IP VPNs are useful for connecting distributed locations, but benefits can't be realized if applications are oversubscribed, traffic stalls in bottlenecks and critical applications are improperly assigned to best-effort classes. PacketShaper makes good on the MPLS promise, assessing performance and identifying and marking application traffic with special handling needs so traffic can move smoothly to the enterprise edge.
Enhance Network Security
Internal threats from worm infections, unsanctioned recreational traffic and rogue servers can severely impact network capacity and bring down critical applications. PacketShaper helps identify infected PCs and unsanctioned traffic as well as protect performance of key applications and the network during attack-all while delivering hard ROI from bandwidth savings, increased WAN capacity and accelerated application performance.
