Uncommon Thinking for the Common Good™Stay
We have traditionally been a Packetshaper shop for a very long time. I’ve grown a bit dis-satisfied with a number of things over the years, and it looks like we will need to make some fairly expensive upgrades in the not too distant future to one of my shapers.
Plus, my confidence in the deep packet inspection abilities of the shaper is not as high as it once was.
I’m also looking at a next generation firewall and my confidence is much higher in the dpi capabilities of that device for denying stuff like p2p.
So, that all said, I’ve been looking at a product to equalize my bandwidth more than shape it. I have seen people on this list mention the NetEqualizer quite often, and would be interested in your experiences with the product.
Please let me know how long you’ve had the appliance.
How much bandwidth you are equalizing over.
How many students you are equalizing bandwidth for.
Your experience with the support. How easy to reach, replacement hardware, etc.
Do you miss the automatic bypass of the shaper (if you had one)?
And just your overall satisfaction with the unit and APConnection.
