Bandwidth Management and QoS
w e believe that a killer benefit of the DrayTek is its quality of service management. Quality of service management can be used for MULTI Internet connection or one connection too, providing substantial benefits by ensuring that low-priority traffic does not swamp higher-priority traffic and degrade performance of services such as Skype and high-definition video streaming.
With one or two Internet connections, the DrayTek allows you to prioritize certain users (e.g. particular IP addresses) and/or services (e.g. Skype VoIP or audio or video streaming) to maximize performance for critical users and/or applications. Equally, the DrayTek allows you to reduce the priority of non-time-critical traffic (for example, email and non-critical file downloads).
For many broadband users, we believe that most broadband issues that are blamed on a slow Internet connection are actually due to the fact that multiple devices and applications are attempting to use the Internet connection at the same time. So, for example, the quality of a Skype voice call may be affected by a file download or the sending/receiving of email at the same time. If the demands on the Internet connection can be managed better, then the Internet connection (even with relatively low speeds) will be much less of a bottleneck, even with a single connection.
DrayTek provides several mechanisms for quality of service management, which can be used separately, or in combination. These include:
