Dynamic Bandwidth

The dynamic bandwidth module is an fair usage policy bandwidth usage bandwidth module. Many ISPs use a Fair User Policy (FUP). This means if NAS or zone have lower traffic all user will get a higher bandwidth and when the at peak hour all user will be to a lower bandwidth limit. We’ve moved this idea on to a different level and made it as configurable as it can be. To access the dynamic bandwidth module click on Policy > Dynamic Bandwidth from the navigation.
