NetEnforcer for LAN/Internet
NetEnforcer® family of bandwidth management LAN appliances
offers best-of-class traffic shaping technology for QoS/SLA
enforcement and real-time traffic monitoring on carrier (AC-1000
Series), service provider and enterprise networks. Individual
models are optimized to support a variety of bandwidths and
policy enforcement devices offer service providers a complete
suite of bandwidth management tools for better managing network
resources, enabling over-subscription, and enforcing service
level agreemetns (SLAs). The NetEnforcer lets service
providers immediately identify and limit excessive bandwidth
consumers and put "recovered" bandwidth to profitable
on a service provider network.
to Policy-Powered Networking
Policy-Powered Networking lets you efficiently manage
subscriber traffic accessing the service provider network.
The process of implementing a Policy-Powered Networking solution
includes three steps:
Use the NetEnforcer to retrieve customer information
from your Customer Care and Billing system (CCB) or text-based
customer list. This process automatically retrieves the subscriber's
SLA type and defines the minimum and maximum bandwidth limits
on the NetEnforcer.
Upon matching a traffic session with a subscriber,
NetEnforcer forwards the packets according to the bandwidth
parameters outlined in its SLA.
The NetEnforcer sends detailed traffic information
to the billing/reporting systems, including addresses, applications
used, and the quantity of traffic sent. This allows you to
create advanced invoicing schemes such as usage-based billing.
