Bandwidth Controller descriptionAllows you to filter certain types of network trafficBandwidth Controller has many features to help you stay in charge of your network flow. Below is a list of ways in which it can help you control your traffic.
Each network adapter can be individually controlled. This is useful, for instance, if you wish to limit internet traffic without bothering with internal network traffic.
Data rates can be set anywhere between zero and one gigabyte per second giving precise control over the amount of bandwidth used.
Send and receive data rates can be set independently of each other.
Limit data rates by protocol. This allows you to filter certain types of network traffic. For example, you can limit the bandwidth of TCP traffic without affecting UDP or IPX.
No need for any software to be installed on client machines. They don't even need any extra configuration. Bandwidth Controller works at the driver level on the server machine so that the whole process is transparent to end users.
statistics show the amount of data used for each filter and the current bandwidth. A graphical bandwidth usage history gives a quick overview of the current bandwidth utilization.
Management of filters is centralized in an intuitive management interface. New filters can be configured with a few clicks of the mouse.
Limit traffic from specific IP addresses. Both source and destination addresses can be set.
Traffic can also be controlled for specific ports. This is useful for controlling certain applications while giving others full bandwidth.
For example, you can limit peer to peer file sharing software to 5 kilobytes per second without affecting HTTP or FTP flows.
Bandwidth Controller is one of the smartest solution for bandwidth management, due to the advanced features it offers beside the usual transfer rate limitations: custom settings for one or more IP classes, address groups or MAC addresses .
Its very simple interface makes Bandwidth Controller the best choice on
the market for both advanced and novice users who want to control and monitor their network traffic.
Give applications a boost using traffic prioritization. This feature delivers maximum throughput for time-sensitive network software including games, VoIP and video.
Speed limits allow you to cap the transfer rate for high bandwidth applications such as web downloads, peer-to-peer applications and FTP. Because the product operates at layer 3 in the TCP/IP stack, speed limits are protected from users and cannot be altered or exceeded in any way.
Internet usage is viewed using the built-in traffic monitor. It displays the amount of bandwidth being used, and the protocol, direction, user, port and traffic statistics.
