Configuring Bandwidth Limitations
Limiting the data rate allocated per user can help to prevent bandwidth hogging. However, sometimes limiting data rates for all users downloads is unnecessary and contributes to a poorer user experience.
With Splash Access you can set automated user limits per hour and dynamically allocate a Group policy to restrict speeds to say 500kb and add layer rules at the same time to block download’s.
Improved Experience on the network
This ensures that users do not consume more bandwidth than they should, have the best network experience, particularly when downloading small files, while still preventing individual clients from consistently utilizing large amounts of the available bandwidth.
