Control your network bandwidth

Apple is at it again this time with its free OSX mavericks. Free is the key word here. As soon as the os update became available, apple users on the wireless network went straight to iTunes to download it. This is what our Allot ac1440 bandwidth management device was working against.

What’s nice about the netEnforcer is that I have a rule to limit certain applications solely on the wireless network. This helps in reducing oversubscription on our wireless AP’s. During peak usage, we can have over 50 users on one access point. Throttling their bandwidth helps alleviate airtime congestion.
