The network performance technology, developed by CirrusWorks, Inc., is radically different from traditional bandwidth optimization tools. The lightweight appliance uses mathematical algorithms to optimize Internet traffic during peak congestion periods, capturing maximum available capacity and ensuring fair and efficient bandwidth allocation among competing users on a school's network.
"Schools, libraries and public facilities are seeking next generation technologies to help them cope with the explosion of video and heavy data streams on their WiFi networks, said Ed Floyd, Director of Marketing and Business Development at En-Net Services. "After extensive review, we are proud to include CirrusWorks on our roster of network performance equipment for WiFi infrastructure."
"At CirrusWorks, our mission is to improve the online learning experience through better, smarter and faster Internet performance," said David Giannini, CEO of CirrusWorks. "Web-based learning and one-to-one initiatives are pushing school bandwidth to its limit during peak usage periods, when it matters the most. CirrusWorks helps smooth out those spikes in Internet traffic, ultimately controlling costs and improving performance on a school's WiFi network."
