Which product can control speed internet with client?

Dear All,

I would like to ask all of you some question about hardware control speed internet with client access internet?

Re: Which product can control speed internet with client?

This can be done using different types of hardwares

However if you are using cisco router on the Internet edge and you know the source IP such as the manager PC ip then you can you MQC policies with policing

Other option proxy server can do it but require re design to your Internet access

Hope this help

You can achieve that on most Cisco routers and many Cisco L3 switches, fairly easily for outbound traffic.  Inbound traffic, although you can also fairly easily control the amount of traffic that reaches your users, controlling ther actual inbound bandwidth utilization isn't so easy.

Bandwidth management may be tricky in your situation. Specifically since you don't have a lot of bandwidth to spare. 

Depending on your budget, take a visit to Riverbed - their appliances are really amazing and can do everything you want.

You'll need to create bandwidth pools and assign users to a pool, assuming there's more than one manager and more than one user, etc, all managers in the manager pool would share 1mb of bandwdith, all users in the user pool would share 256k of bandwidth, etc.  Now the problem with this is simple: 256k doesn't divide well between more than a few people before it's virtually unusable, deploying a caching proxy/bandwidth management appliance along side of your bandwidth pools would make the most effective use of what you have available (but it's not cheap)
