Leipzig, Germany (PressExposure) September 03, 2008 -- Such conditions are usually found in hotels that provide WiFi coverage, Internet cafes, company branch offices and even ships with satellite Internet access. The integrated quality-of-service (QoS) management allows prioritization of business-critical applications while limiting the impact of bandwidth-intensive applications on the overall network performance. For example, bandwidth reservations and a higher priority can be assigned to Voice over IP (VoIP) calls using applications such as Skype. PRX-20 guarantees call quality even if large data exchanges through Web browsing, e-mail transfers or P2P file sharing take place at the same time.
PRX-20 is available fully licensed at a fixed price of US$1,760. While ipoque's larger appliances come as a base unit plus a number of protocol, feature and bandwidth modules â each with its own price tag, PRX-20 already includes all available options.
âPRX-20 has three advantages that together are unmatched: the reliable detection engine, the small size and the extremely competitive price,â says Michael Herbst, sales director of ipoque.
