The Dynamic Bandwidth Shaper (DBS) is a network management service which tracks subscriber usage and dynamically adjusts queues on devices running the Mikrotik Router OS. Designed specifically for WISPs, rural ISPs, and the hospitality industry to take control of subscriber IP based entertainment service demands by instituting a tier based service model.
The DBS allows you to take full control of your network, reduce costs, increase subscriber satisfaction, and realize new revenue opportunities.
Take full control of your network through the successful management of IP-based entertainment services. No longer can one or two subscribers watching video streams on Netflix, YouTube, or Hulu and hog all available bandwidth.
Reduce your costs by making your existing bandwidth go farther through the effective management and monitoring of your network.
Increase subscriber satisfaction through the consistent delivery of a variety of bandwidth service levels. This approach gives 90 - 95% of subscribers the best possible speed within their selected tier of service, while only penalizing the 5 - 10% that exceed their allotted bandwidth. In other words, subscribers get what they pay for, and bandwidth hogs are brought under control. With traditional bandwidth shaping queues alone all subscribers would necessarily be limited to a very low transfer rates to keep potential bandwidth hogs under control.
Realize new revenue opportunities by monetizing unused bandwidth by up-selling "Stand-by" bandwidth to subscribers that are willing to pay for it.
