Allot Networks Solutions: EducationBroadband Traffic Management Solutions for Intelligent Networks
Educational institutions of all kinds have become Internet Service Providers for their communities of faculty, students, alumni, and administration personnel. As a result, they are constantly struggling to manage the growing use of high-bandwidth applications (namely P2P, streaming video) that compete with their revenue-generating and mission-critical applications (namely distance learning and research) - without resorting to the costly and futile soflution of simply increasing bandwidth on the backbone network.
With the granular visibility, network intelligence, and QoS policy control provided by Allot solutions, these operators can eliminate congestion, reduce bandwidth costs, guarantee the performance of mission-critical applications, and provide a quality experience for everyone on the network.
Allot's comprehensive portfolio of products is based on cutting-edge Layer-7 Deep Packet Inspection (DPI) technology . Looking deep into each and every packet and into packet flows traversing the network, they identify and prioritize applications according to defined policies and ensure network protection against attacks such as denial of service, SYN and spam.
Allot solutions optimize the performance and Quality of Experience provided by
core campus networks, remote learning links and Internet links
Allot solutions for education networks include:
- Network Visibility solutions help network operators understand the applications and users that are driving bandwidth usage on their Internet link, core campus network and remote campus sites, so that they can manage growing demand and bandwidth capacity cost-effectively.
- Sophisticated Bandwidth Management: Instead of buying more bandwidth to solve congestion issues, Allot bandwidth management solutions allow educational institutions to save money and optimize network performance by efficiently managing the utilization of existing bandwidth resources. Allot’s full complement of policy provisioning and bandwidth management tools enable the creation of dynamic QoS policies especially to control P2P abuse; to prioritize the delivery of mission-critical applications, and to to ensure the quality of experience (QoE) for users of real-time, delay-sensitive applications like VoIP and video conferencing.
- Highly scalable WAN Optimization: Many university networks are composed of multiple sites distributed geographically across wide areas. Allot solutions apply a proactive, policy-powered approach to allow network operators to manage the entire network centrally, and create different traffic policies for different WAN links.
- DDoS and Bot/Zombie Protection solutions ensure service continuity and guard education networks integrity against known and unknown threats. Through immediate identification of Denial of Service (DoS/DDoS) attacks, Zero Day attacks, worms, zombie and spambot behavior, Allot enables fast, surgical mitigation of offending traffic while allowing legitimate traffic to flow.
