Traffic shaping for the Web manages bandwidth for allocating,
prioritizing and protecting the network.
Most often with firewall QoS bandwidth management, it means
choosing between one extreme or the other either completely allowing
or eliminating a certain type of traffic such as streaming media.
With so many valid online applications and content that are critical
to organizations today, this approach is no longer reasonable.
Compounding this issue is that the Web no longer is contained
to a single port or protocol, meaning that bandwidth management must
have the intelligence and ability to enable network administrators
to manage bandwidth granularly, by application, user, port,
protocol, to be in control of Web usage and network resources.
DeepNines Bandwidth Manager monitors and manages network traffic
across all ports and protocols.
By providing complete user visibility, Bandwidth Manager
allows you to make informed decisions on access and control through
traffic shaping, regulating applications, and consumption
Bandwidth Manager enables organizations to enforce security
policies, increase user productivity, guarantee network performance,
and decrease networking costs associated with excessive bandwidth
consumption and latency.
Bandwidth Manager regulates Web traffic by individual, group or
traffic type, providing total command of the Web for on-demand
blocking, limiting and prioritization.
As part of DeepNines Secure Web Gateway solution,
Bandwidth Manger interprets raw data from the system into useful
information for traffic shaping.
DeepNines Bandwidth Manger performs a comprehensive inspection of
all network traffic on every port and protocol and manages traffic
in order to prevent excessive bandwidth consumption.
Bandwidth controls can be set based on numerous criteria
including type of traffic (i.e. streaming media), specific
application (i.e. YouTube), user group, subnet, port and more.
Overall bandwidth limits can also be set and once the threshold is
reached, offending traffic is throttled while critical applications
are given priority to provide complete traffic shaping for all Web
content and applications.

Manage and Prioritize Bandwidth.
Bandwidth Manager allows you to make informed
decisions on access and control through traffic shaping,
regulating applications and consumption prioritization.
With DeepNines Bandwidth Manger, offending
traffic is automatically throttled, while critical
applications are given priority.
Bandwidth Manager can apply different controls to
any traffic, content or application.
available for managing bandwidth are the following:
- Identity-based decisions
- Allow for approved bandwidth
- Block for unwanted or inappropriate bandwidth
- Limit for bandwidth-intensive content and applications
- Prioritize for mission critical bandwidth
- Customizable Criteria.
Bandwidth Manager's allow, block, limit and
prioritize controls can be applied to any content or
applications based on a wide variety of criteria. These
controls can be set based on a variety of criteria
- Application: Bandwidth
Manager can identify specific applications and apply a
variety of controls by application, so that mission-critical
applications specific to your organization are always
accessible while unwanted applications are eliminated.
Individual Users and/or User Groups: After setting up ID
Manager, bandwidth can be managed by individual user or user
groups. Bandwidth can
- Time-of-Day: Controls can be set for specific time periods
in order prevent bandwidth saturation during high traffic
example, traffic can be throttled first thing in the morning
when everyone is logging on and checking email all at the
- Port: Bandwidth
can be managed by port to give ports with the highest
priority the most bandwidth.
Traditional ports such as port 80 for Web traffic can
be prioritized, while less active ports can be limited in
order to ensure that bandwidth is being consumed
- Protocol: Although Bandwidth Manger can control traffic based on any
protocol, the most common protocols are TCP for stateful
traffic such as Web pages and UDP for sessionless traffic
such as streaming media.
Bandwidth Manager applies true rate shaping for TCP
traffic, as opposed to a simple packet drop, which improves
network efficiency by eliminating retransmissions. On UDP
traffic, Bandwidth Manger uses adaptive rate control to
manage bandwidth while still keeping the session active.
