Quickly identify recreational application usage and win back control of your bandwidth
Manage the apps that cripple productivity
Besides being enormously unproductive, recreational applications can cripple networks. A couple of employees streaming or downloading illegal content, watching YouTube or live TV can bring the network to a near-standstill. At the same time, Bring Your Own Devices (BYOD), such as smart phones, can have all sorts of applications installed that further impact performance once they are connected to your WiFi network.
Knowing what’s on the network, what each device connects to and what kinds of traffic they send is paramount to understanding their impact. This knowledge allows you to plan your network accordingly. Sinefa allows you to see all of your network and everything that is attached to it.
As well as monitoring and controlling network performance, Sinefa’s solution provides the visibility for you to understand the relationship between network performance and human productivity. It is now possible to understand the productivity cost of a poor performing network. In the future, this knowledge could fundamentally change the way we design and use networks.
Manage apps down to the individual device
New recreational applications are popping up every day. Some have a bigger network impact than others. Others can be completely destructive on the network, sapping every ounce of available bandwidth.
Sinefa’s network probe and accompanying dashboard app provide network managers with the visibility and control to identify and manage recreational users and apps down to the individual device. It also gives you visibility into which devices, apps and users are on your network.
Sinefa’s classification catalog is continually updated to recognise and control new recreational apps. Thousands of these applications are classified in groups such as ‘All Social Networking’, ‘All Gaming’, ‘All P2P’, and so on, to give you much simpler control.
With Sinefa, you can leverage existing rules and assign the total amount of bandwidth you want to allow for each type of app. Rules are applied instantly across the whole network. Save time and boost employee productivity!
