For all the schools out there who are connected to the internet/
internet2 @ 1Gbps or greater, I am curious how you are accomplishing
traffic shaping. Specifically, how do you ensure your enterprise
applications receive dedicated bandwidth over things like p2p or
other bandwidth intensive applications?
We currently connect @ 80Mbps and have been very successful with the
packeteer product line. However, we are about to connect at 1Gbps
and the cost for packet shaping at these speeds grows tremendously.
Has anyone found a creative way to accomplish traffic shaping while
keeping costs contained?
