LAFAYETTE, Colo., June 9 /PRNewswire/ -- APconnections, a leading supplier of plug-and-play bandwidth shaping products and the creator of the NetEqualizer, this week released its most recent white paper discussing the often hidden costs of many bandwidth control and WAN optimization technologies.
The white paper evaluates the long-term return on investment (ROI) of bandwidth control tools that are implemented to provide users with the most detailed reporting. In doing so, the paper explores both the initial price of the technology as well as the recurring cost of maintaining such strict network control. Detailed reporting strategies not only force administrators to spend a greater number of man hours interpreting results, but also tend to lead to an increase in the time spent fine-tuning the network for the elusive perfect result in an ever-changing environment.

Eli Riles, APconnections director of technology, sees the more simplified approach as a reflection of larger trends within network management, saying, "Back in the 1990s network managers were faced with much more expensive bandwidth costs. That was the heyday for detailed and complex reporting tools. Now, going into the second decade of the 21st century, the approach of 'simple is better' is taking off and we're the leading vendor with that philosophy."
The NetEqualizer is a plug-and-play bandwidth control and WAN/Internet optimization appliance that is flexible and scalable. When the network is congested, NetEqualizer's unique "behavior shaping" technology gives priority to latency sensitive applications, such as VoIP and email. It does it all dynamically and automatically, improving on other bandwidth shaping technology available. It controls network flow for the best WAN optimization.
APconnections is a privately held company founded in 2003 and is based in Lafayette, Colorado (http://www.netequalizer.com).
