Ability to prioritize applications for WFH users

Home internet is like a large size pizza where each one craves for their pie and when one takes more, the other is left with less or none. A similar situation arises in your home network as well. Business-critical apps consume a larger portion of the home internet leaving less for other family members. Managing the bandwidth is a greater challenge and can be best addressed with the help of app prioritization. Just increasing the speed of your internet does not resolve the issue; it is here that app prioritization comes into play.

How can WFH users prioritize applications?
While speed is defined in Mbps, priority is determined as High, Medium or Low depending upon the business-critical usage of the app. WFH users are under pressure when it comes to meeting the demands of high bandwidth apps. The Quality of Service (QoS) issues like latency, jitter and pack loss is major cause of concern for WFH users. It is not humanly possible to upgrade the routers constantly as it is an expensive and time-consuming proposition.

Modern-day routers are designed to meet the remote working needs of your business. They not only address the connectivity, flexibility, easy configuration and usage needs but also cater to the allocation of bandwidth to ensure everyone using the network gets their share of internet access without any drop time. Keeping this in mind SMOAD routers facilitates seamless, secure and aggregation of 4G LTE + Broadband to make everyone at home happy.

SMOAD routers are a class apart with cloud app prioritization features to divert important apps for better bandwidth management. The routers come with a SIM slot, so you access the internet without a broadband connection. Now you have the flexibility to allot dedicated bandwidth for your business apps and entertainment apps. You can manage your WFH routine seamlessly with SMOAD SD-WAN Routers.
