PacketController specializes in high-end solutions for ISPs, which are dissatisfied with the limited scalability, complexity and functionality of current bandwidth management solutions offered on the market. Our product is an integrated, modular resolution that provides unsurpassed control over network quality management.

Congestion Management

PacketController removes all congestion, drops and retransmission from the network. It does this by effectively pacing traffic of all types to the link speed and unlike the competitors, it does this without the need to queue traffic.

PacketController emulates separate links per user, controlling bidirectional throughput to the bit and TCP rate limiting across these to further control congestion. This is the natural way to reduce the number of packets on the network at any given time and therefore reduce congestion allowing higher priority traffic a free passage through the network.

The fastest way for an IP packet to traverse any link is when there is zero congestion between the client and host, by entering the WAN link speed into the PacketController its bandwidth management algorithms will automatically and fairly split bandwidth amongst the users. Through controlling client requests, higher priority traffic always has a free path through the network and never gets delayed in a queue, as a result it paces all traffic to the speed of the WAN link so that there is no congestion at all along the traffic path.

High performance system

PacketController has the fine-tuned multi-core support for fast parallel packet processing. It uses some well known performance-boosting techniques, such as memory-mapping the card's packet buffers, I/O batching and multiqueue to spread the load across multicores. Those technologies allow PacketController to achieve almost straight line performance gains to cores.

Automatic P2P bandwidth usage throttling

The automatic P2P bandwidth usage throttling technology brings policy enforcement improvement and user experience enhancement. It monitors bandwidth usage of each and every online subscriber, and it differentiates P2P usage and other applications like web surfing.

Integrated With External Cache

A web cache is a mechanism for the temporary storage (caching) of web documents, such as HTML pages and images, to reduce bandwidth usage, server load, and perceived lag. A web cache stores copies of documents passing through it; subsequent requests may be satisfied from the cache if certain conditions are met.

it is quite common for us to find that an organization already has a firewall and/or proxy in place and we have made sure that PacketController will be compatible with them. PacketController sits behind the Web Proxy, and it is web cache aware which means that PacketController will automatically identify cache and non-cache traffic, this is significant for bandwidth management.
