Per application control of bandwidth involves managing the traffic level – in other words, what are the devices accessing the network doing? What sites are they visiting? Are they surfing the Web or streaming movies? All these questions affect bandwidth.

Nomadix’s Alloc8 - X Series is a family of four enterprise-grade layer 7 platforms that combine real-time monitoring, interactive analytics, purpose-built reports and an intelligent recommendation engine to give network operators the ability to pinpoint the source of congestion and manage bandwidth demand, not just capacity. The series features Deep Packet Inspection (DPI) technology to give network managers and administrators a better understanding of network traffic, applications and performance.

What is the problem? Who is causing it?

The first step to solving congestion problems is determining the cause. With the Alloc8 – X Series, network managers get insight into which applications are operating on the network, how applications are performing and the amount of bandwidth being consumed by guests, devices, applications and locations across the network. Once understood, policies can be implemented to limit or prevent bandwidth allocation. Plus, administrators can prioritize how and when individual users, groups, applications and websites consume bandwidth on the network.

What’s going on in your network?

Once network managers know the cause of network congestion, the Alloc8 – X Series provides a suite of analytical tools that allows them to implement solutions for their network demand challenges. It provides clear, easy-to-read interactive analytics, purpose-built reports, a recommendation engine and policy-based, traffic-shaping technology tools. This combination of information and tools enables network managers to assess patterns and trends within the network so that potential congestion problems can be addressed before they occur. The Alloc8 – X Series also makes suggestions for policy changes, which enables network teams to diagnose and resolve problems faster thus improving network performance and guest users’ internet experiences.
