Packetshaping

12/5/06

Part of my job of being the technology director for WeAVE is making sure our Internet connection out of school is funtioning properly so our students can get the functionality they require.

Working w/ Bruce Thoren of Copper Mountain Consulting, who has a contract w/ Wyo to manage the WEN, we have been able to limit all iTunes, WinMedia, Quicktime, Real, and Gnutella traffic to only 56K of our 3 Mb pipe. That is awesome. I love it!!

He installed a Packeteer Packetshaper.

The packetshaper combined with our iPrism filtering appliance is giving us much more control over what type of traffic comes into and out of our network.

I love it!!
