  NetEqualizer User-Quota API Taking Off
Since being introduced earlier this month, interest in the NetEqualizer User-Quota API programmer’s toolkit has quickly been picking up steam.
This new toolkit allows NetEqualizer users to generate custom configurations to better handle bandwidth quotas as well as keep their customers informed of their individual bandwidth usage.
The NetEqualizer User-Quota API programmer’s toolkit features include:
  • Tracking user data by IP and MAC address (MAC address tracking will be out in the second release)
  • Specifying quotas and bandwidth limits by IP or a subnet block
  • Monitoring real-time bandwidth utilization
  • Notification alarms when users exceed a bandwidth limit
  • Access to API programming interface
  • Allow individual customers to see monthly bandwidth consumption
In addition to providing the option to create separate bandwidth quotas for individual customers and reduce a customer’s Internet pipe when they have reached their set limit, customers themselves can be notified when a limit is reached and even have access to an interface to monitor current monthly usage.

Ten Things To Consider When Choosing A Bandwidth Shaper

This article is intended as an objective guide for anyone trying to narrow down their options in the bandwidth controller market. Organizations today have a plethora of product options to choose from. To further complicate your choices, not only are there specialized bandwidth controllers, you’ll also find that most firewall and router products today contain some form of bandwidth shaping and QoS features.
What follows is an all-encompassing list of questions that will help you to quickly organize your priorities with regard to choosing a bandwidth shaper.
1) What is the cost of increasing your bandwidth?
Although this question may be a bit obvious, it must be asked. We assume that anybody in the market for a bandwidth controller also has the option of increasing their bandwidth. The costs of purchasing and operating a bandwidth controller should ultimately be compared with the cost of increasing bandwidth on your network.
2) How much savings should you expect from your bandwidth controller?
  A Special Thanks

If you did not see your name on this list, let us know and we’ll be sure to mention you in our next edition.
