NetEqualizer Provides BitTorrent Compromise for Internet Service Providers

LAFAYETTE, Colo., Jan. 24 /PRNewswire/ -- ISPs that allegedly block BitTorrent traffic have become an issue in the news lately. Consumer groups are threatening lawsuits against major Internet Providers for invasion of privacy. The good news is that NetEqualizer, by APconnections, has provided a non-intrusive compromise to scaling back BitTorrent traffic for quite some time, and without any spying or looking at customer data.


Mike Morgan, Windows Server Administrator of Poplar Bluff Internet, serving Southern Missouri, says, "We have 13,000 subscribers and have found the NetEqualizer will handle all forms of BitTorrent traffic quite nicely. In fact, we are replacing a more expensive tool from another company that required us to purchase upgrades at just about the same price as a fully supported new NetEqualizer."

According to Art Reisman, CTO of the NetEqualizer product line, "The key to the NetEqualizer technology is that it limits connections, not BitTorrent itself. The issue most ISPs have with BitTorrents is that these file transfers can overwhelm their networks similar to a denial of service attack from a virus. Other techniques used to completely block BitTorrents are controversial because they are suspected of invading consumer privacy. NetEqualizer never opens up any customer data and thus cannot be accused of spying. Connections are treated as a metered resource. The ISPs that use NetEqualizer simply put a policy in their service contracts stating how many connections they support, end of story. BitTorrent is still allowed to run, albeit not at wide with unlimited connections."

The NetEqualizer is a plug-and-play bandwidth control and Internet optimization appliance that is flexible and scalable. When the network is congested, NetEqualizer's unique traffic 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 out there. 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/).
