Shaping Policy

General

Traffic shaping (also known as packet shaping) is a bandwidth management technique that limits the amount of bandwidth that can be consumed by certain types of apps. It is primarily used to ensure a high quality of service for business-related network traffic. Application-based traffic shaping uses fingerprinting tools to identify the app associated with a data packet. Based on this, specific traffic shaping policies are applied.

Standard Shaping Policy

Paratus reserves the right to apply network traffic engineering policies on any designated service to manage fair and high-quality access for all our customers. Standard shaping takes place during business hours from 08h00 to 18h00 weekdays (Mon-Fri) only. Standard shaping only applies to Peer-to-Peer Traffic (torrent downloads) and Software Updates (Windows, IOS and Android).
