This is how the internet works – the short version
When we are connected to the internet, we download a lot of data. Some activities on the internet are very data demanding, for example downloading movies or updating operating systems. Other activities like reading our e-mails, are less data demanding.
The internet works like this: The user who uses the highest amount of bandwidth, is also assigned the highest bandwidth. As a result, one single user gobbling up bandwidth, will produce a slow and uneven internet connection for other users, even if their bandwidth demands are modest. Work effeciency decreases, users are frustrated, and important tasks may be delayed.
Bandwidth for everyone – but how?
SmartShare StraightShaper 4000 Satellite is designed to manage bandwidth on satellite connections with low bandwidth.
With a StraightShaper Satellite connected to your VSAT, users may spend time on the internet as they please. Now all active users are guaranteed bandwidth because the StraightShaper Satellite will provide User Load Balancing™.
What is User Load Balancing™?
User Load Balancing™, unique to the SmartShare StraightShaper products, distributes the available bandwidth dynamically and evenly among those users who are active on the internet.
”SmartShare StraightShaper – available bandwidth at any time!”
Morten Brørup, CTO hos SmartShare Systems
When the amount of data constantly is distributed evenly among the users who are connected to the internet, the internet appears stable, because there no longer can be single users, who periodically use all the bandwidth and clog the connection. The StraightShaper Satellite automatically ensures an even distribution of the available bandwidth, and you don’t have to configure anything.
Get the internet that suits your needs
Besides a unique way of approaching bandwidth management, you also have the possibility of individualizing your StraightShaper Satellite configuration.
Satellite bandwidth is expensive, and therefore there is rarely plenty of it available. It might be important to you, that some groups of employees are secured more bandwidth than others.
From the StraightShaper Satellite user interface, you can easily prioritize certain groups of users or devices, as well as set up filters to avoid software updates of iPads and the like.
By installing StraightShaper Satellite you get:
- Guaranteeed bandwidth for all active users, independent of applications and protocols
- A stabilized internet connection, that the users experience as faster, because they can not be slowed down by other users’ bandwidth consumption
- The option of customizing settings, if you have a demand for e.g. prioritizing groups of professionals or for filtration
- The option of extracting reports e.g. describing minimum available bandwidth per user, or the load on the connection
- More effeciency and less spent time on IT administration
