Finally a Bandwidth Control appliance for under $1500


Lafayette Colorado April 9th 2009

APconnections today Announced a small business bandwidth control device that  lists at $1499. (for single unit orders)

This new offer  handles up to 10 megabits and 100 users with room to spare for some expansion. It comes complete with all the standard features of the NetEqualizer, but in a smaller  low power format  with Power over Ethernet.

Demand for this new offer came from two sources

1) There was huge demand for an affordable traffic shaping device to  help small business run their VOIP concurrent with their data traffic over their internet link.

2) There was also a need  for a low end unit, with POE,  for the WISP market .

In  a large wireless network, congestion often occurs at tower locations.  With a low cost POE version of the NetEqualizer,  wireless providers can  now afford to have advanced bandwidth control at or near their Access distribution points.

According to Joe DeSopo from NetEqualizer, “About half of wireless network slowness comes from p2p (bittorrent)  and video users overloading the access points. We have had great success with our  NE2000 series  but the price point of $2500 was a bit too high to duplicate all over the network.”

For a small or medium sized office with a hosted VOIP PBX solution the NetEqualizer works like a genie in a bottle. It is one of the few products on the market that can provide QOS for voip over an Internet link. And now, with volume pricing approaching $1000,  it will help revolutions the way offices use their Internet connection.

The NetEqualizer is a plug-and-play bandwidth control and WAN/Internet optimization appliance that is flexible and scalable. When the network is congested, NetEqualizer’s unique “behavior shaping” technology gives priority to latency-sensitive applications, such as VoIP and email. It does it all dynamically and automatically, improving on other available bandwidth shaping technology. It controls network flow for the best WAN optimization.

APconnections is a privately held company founded in 2003 and is based in Lafayette, Colorado.
