Bandwidth Management (BW) and Control

The variety of bandwidth management tools provided by Nomadix enables network operators and system integrators to maximize their Return on Investment (ROI) from available internet bandwidth capacity. This means that internet bandwidth circuits do not need to be upgraded as frequently, even as the perceived demand for bandwidth continues to grow. Nomadix's Bandwidth Management and Access Gateway appliances support BW management per device or per group. Bandwidth capping allows for control on a granular level for the operator to sell in tiered levels to groups.
