This is the blog of Ronald Bartels that wanders on and off the subject of problem management (that is how it started), but it is best described by Ray who says this is Daddy's thoughts! Like the best music is from the Eighties and a wee dram helps in solving most inconveniences.
Combining SDWAN and the throttling technology used in ISPs
In my days at iBurst we using a number of Cisco P-cubes
to prevent congestion on the wireless towers. The iBurst connection was
able to squeeze approximately a measly 1 Mb/s out of a modem and any
excessive use of P2P, especially bittorrent,
on the towers would kill the user experience. The solution was manged
by someone we called the ninja, so called because one moment he would be
at his desk and the next gone. We always thought he has secret routes
through the air conditioning ducts of the building. Like many Cisco
products the P-cubes have been flushed into the abyss of Cisco
acquisition discards with the current market leader in the sector being Sandvine.
