Most forecasts for networks indicate dramatic growth, both in bandwidth and the numbers of endpoints driving network utilization. This ensures that network resources will be constantly contended for, especially in places such as the last mile of wide-area networks, where relatively low-speed links are still commonplace. The service oriented nature of the 128T Networking Platform (128T) provides a powerful set of tools for making efficient use of network bandwidth, providing true determinism based on sessions, in order to prevent congestion and increase utilization at the same time. However, sometimes congestion is unavoidable. The video above presents a demo of a 128T router's ability to handle congestion, using state of the art traffic engineering and queuing to ensure that critical services and applications are prioritized. Setup The demo setup is using the default production router at the 128 Technology Seattle branch site. The PC is sitting behind device interface glacier:5 which is set up with a capacity of 15 megabits /second, and is currently operating at around 8-9 mbps, a little below what is provisioned.
