Quality of Service and bandwidth management added via software update
Today we’re introducing TRIAX EoC software 2.6.1.r145, available for all TRIAX EoC controllers.
With QoS and extended bandwidth management functionality, the update adds even more professional networking features to our Ethernet over Coax solution, benefitting administrators and end users alike.
Partners and customers can download the new software by logging in My TRIAX on your local TRIAX website, then navigating to an EoC controller in the Products area.
Quality of Service (QoS)
Certain online activities are more dependent on a good, stable internet connection and high throughput in order to ensure a good user experience.
An example is Voice over IP (VoIP), where data needs to be transmitted in real-time with no delays.
By implementing QoS, VoIP – or associated applications like Zoom or Microsoft Teams – is treated as priority data, ensuring the best possible experience for end users given the overall bandwidth available.
Software 2.6.1.r145 introduces QoS traffic priority based on DSCP for all EoC devices.
TRIAX EoC already offers Dynamic Bandwidth Management (DBM), which automatically allocates the best available bandwidth to any given user depending on their usage requirements.
It allows the full capacity of your internet connection to be distributed most fairly, without compromising a minimum throughput at each end point and with no further administration required on your part.
Software 2.6.1.r145 now adds the possibility to manage bandwidth in the ‘classic’ sense – i.e. by specifying a maximum bandwidth capacity at each end point or end point group.
In some installations like hotels, this might be used as an opportunity for upselling extra throughput if the guest requires it.
