University Dorms and Army Barracks

Offer Internet services that are differentiated by speed, time, and volume to university dorms and army barracks

For IT administrators at college and university dorms, army barracks, and other grouped environments, being able to offer a satisfying Internet experience to each individual is critical. But to do so, administrators must find effective solutions to two challenges:

  • How to best divide a shared and finite Internet connection between dozens or hundreds of people
  • How to be flexible enough to deliver a handful of service options, rather than a one-size-fits-all approach 

Policy control offers a solution to both of these challenges, as the technology provides administrators with powerful traffic management techniques to optimize the shared connection, while at the same time allowing administrators to define separate tiers of service.

With Sandvine’s Cloud Services Policy Controller, college and university dorms and army barracks can deliver:

  • Easy-to-use traffic management capabilities to define exactly how they want their shared Internet connection to be used—for instance, the administrator could prioritize web browsing and real-time communications services ahead of bulk downloads
  • Tools to quickly craft a range of service options that incorporate speed, volume, and time variables, so that they can offer their end users a choice of services
  • Detailed usage reporting, to understand exactly how the services are being used and to spot opportunities for optimizations
  • Real-time diagnostics tools to help quickly get to the root of any problems
  • Built-in security capabilities to identify users infected with botnets, serving spam, or otherwise making malicious use of the connection
