GoS Agent for enhanced broadband user experience
What is GoS Agent?
GoS Agent is a portable software module that can be deployed on any client device. It provides service providers with full visibility of traffic and the means to control traffic flows beyond the boundary of the network.
GoS Agent ensures that available bandwidth to the user is utilised efficiently and to the maximum capacity. It provides the visibility and control necessary to ensure that multiple parallel real-time applications can attain optimum performance.
How does this benefit service providers?
GoS Agent is a modular solution that identifies, shapes and prioritises traffic, measures link rate and offers clear visibility of user traffic. The data can be used for detailed statistical reporting and improving customer support.
Additionally, the data captured can be used to intelligently control traffic and implement effective policies, via the remote GoS Manager and integration with the network policy architecture and OSS/BSS infrastructure. With GoS Agent, service providers benefit from an enhanced broadband user experience.
- DPI & Application Awareness
- LAN Connectivity & Diagnostics
- QoS Performance and Enforcement
- Link Rate & Bandwidth Performance
- Service Monitoring
By enabling an enhanced broadband user experience, service providers can reduce and manage CAPEX, avoiding costly over-provisioning and make significant OPEX savings. Clear visibility of user data creates new revenue opportunities for delivering targeted services and building policy profiles.
How does it work and what does it do?
A unique capability is Application Awareness. GoS Agent can determine the applications that are in service and provide automatic reconfiguration of settings to ensure traffic is optimised. Rules-based Deep Packet Inspection and statistical flow analysis techniques are used to achieve this.
Traffic is divided into individual flows and a GoS class or Best Effort policy is applied, ensuring that all bandwidth is utilised efficiently, avoiding costly over-provisioning. With GoS Agent and the unique QoS software module, fully optimised traffic is delivered consistently and reliably.
GoS Agent includes a unique QoS software module and performs a number of key tasks:
- Measure Link Performance
- End-to-End or End-to-Network
- Upload/download, loss, delay, jitter
- Monitor Link Utilisation
- Overall and for each traffic type
- Control Link Utilisation
- Using GoS
- Management Agent
- Service Level Management
- Connects to centralised GoS Management System
- Authentication between device and manager
- Periodic and on demand statistics and reports
- Reconfiguration based on current demands
