Enterprises are increasingly dependent on critical applications to operate their businesses. Today, it is unacceptable for any businesses to suffer from conference call lags, website downtime and poor VPN transfer speeds. In order to remain competitive, the broadband infrastructure must be free from congestion, application delays and slow transfer speeds.

AscenFlow delivers the most comprehensive WAN traffic management solution. It accurately analyzes bandwidth usage, monitors network traffic patterns, and intelligently categorizes all traffic flowing between the LAN and WAN. AscenFlow uses Deep Packet Inspection (DPI) technology to identify Layer 7 application traffic with pinpoint precision. The identified traffic is then categorized and given priority based on predefined Quality of Service (QoS) and traffic management policies. For example, applications can be given a guaranteed minimum amount of bandwidth and/or can be limited to the use of a maximum amount of bandwidth. This form of policy-based management is aimed at preventing network congestion while ensuring critical business applications receive sufficient bandwidth for peak performance.

AscenFlow’s DPI technology solves network congestion by identifying and restricting bandwidth to recreational applications such as P2P, iTunes, YouTube, Facebook and online gaming. Performance of mission-critical applications is assured by designating and minimum guaranteed bandwidth based on traffic management policies. AscenFlow’s revolutionary string matching technology accurately identifies Layer 7 protocols, enabling fast and precise data analysis to enhance application delivery by filtering out unwanted bandwidth-abusing applications.

Flexible traffic management portfolios can be established on all inbound and outbound traffic to avoid application delays, connection failures, and to prevent bandwidth misuse. AscenFlow enforces the policies to deliver optimized traffic flow as well as providing unmatched visibility into bandwidth usage and subscriber behavior for businesses to confidently run their applications.

AscenFlow Solves:
Bandwidth Congestion
AscenFlow categorizes and arranges traffic based on policies. Certain traffic can be prioritized over others and peak hour usage can also be controlled, by guaranteeing minimum bandwidth availability or limiting maximum usable bandwidth.

Bandwidth Misuse
Limits bandwidth-abusing and non-business related applications such as P2P, YouTube and social networking.

Lack of Network Visibility
DPI technology penetrates deep into Layer 7 protocols to analyze traffic patterns and enhance network monitoring.

Poor Application Performance
With bandwidth management, business–critical applications such as VPN, ERP, VoIP and Video Conferencing are guaranteed sufficient throughput to deliver optimal performance.

Management of Bandwidth
All traffic between the WAN and LAN is categorized and filtered based on traffic shaping policies to ensure business policies are properly enforced.

Management of Users
Accounts can be individually or collectively managed to control bandwidth usage, network access time and transfer speeds.
