NetReality WiseWAN is a combination of hardware and software to control the priority of application traffic flowing across your WAN links. It can be used by large companies to ensure required bandwidth for their important applications. The solution consists of three components, a hardware box, a data collection server, and a desktop monitoring and control software. The hardware box sits on your WAN link and compares traffic flowing through it against the QoS policies you’ve defined. The data collection server stores all the data being collected by the hardware box, and the desktop monitoring software can use this data to display the WAN link status as well as define policies to control the traffic.

It ensures required bandwidth for important applications

Price: This is based on the amount of bandwidth you want to control. So a solution to control 512 kbps costs between 5.5 to 6 lakh, while a solution for 2 Mbps costs 7.5 to 8 lakh.

WiseWan can distinguish more than 450 different types of known applications. It also has an option for controlling unidentified or proprietary applications. It only starts prioritizing application traffic when it detects congestion. After this it compares the traffic against the policies you’ve defined and balances applications accordingly. Policies can be defined based on the type of application, time of day, or even the type of user. The monitoring features in WiseWan display the overall network status, and real-time status of traffic. There are service-level management tools to ensure that your links are up and running. The solution’s reporting capabilities let you view which applications and protocols are being used and by whom. Alarms can also be set for the network administrator.
