How Can REZRV Help with Prioritizing Bandwidth for Consumer Use?

REZRV from Tantiv4 is a tool that every router in a home or office should have to effectively manage network bandwidth in a home or office environment. REZRV operates by configuring the system to the user’s needs by seamlessly managing the available bandwidth to the most important and time relevant user needs by classifying traffic in an advanced way through machine learning and AI Training engines. REZRV is superior to existing QoS solutions that are currently available from router manufacturers without the need of extensive setup and management on the admin page of a router.

In simpler words, several QoS solutions can prioritize network traffic, but these require extensive calculations and setup on the admin page only to find yourself doing these all over again in a few days. Bandwidth management is a vital requirement in today’s internet-powered world and there is no proof then the last 8 weeks or so when the whole word has transformed itself from office and school, workspaces to work from home environments. What this means that your bandwidth needs to adapt itself to give you priority to maintain or increase your efficiency of working or studying from home. This is the future .. and REZRV enables this transformation by giving users the ability to choose what kind of applications are important – Conference calls with video or media Entertainment in 4K

REZRV easily enables adaption to the new transformation, so you can focus on the tasks that are most important to you. This enables you to continue to work at high efficiency, as an example if you receive a zoom call from your customer or colleague, then REZRV ensures that there is sufficient bandwidth allocated to the Zoom call while others are downloading an app or watching a 4K movie or playing a game.

In an industrial or a factory environment where there are several IoT sensors attached this means that the data from these sensors is the most critical and crucial in such an environment. REZRV can easily ensure that the data from these sensors do not miss a beat and all data is available to a decision maker in case of an unwanted event or an emergency situation ensuring that actions of other users on the network do not lead to an unwanted event.

 

Use cases for bandwidth management

Consider there are ten employees in an office. Five of them are working on a critical office proposal due on the next day. Three people are downloading large software files that are not required for any immediate use. The remaining two users are streaming work-related video content. This results in a scenario where the bandwidth is stressed to the maximum and workflows slow down for everyone. The highest impact is for the person that has a proposal due the next day. One way to address this is to request your co-workers to free up bandwidth so the critical task of finishing the proposal goes on. A REZRV based router will ensure that this situation will not occur.

 

Applications can be categorized into several buckets:

Office and School related applications: Microsoft Teams, Microsoft Editing tools, Google Suite for work and school, Zoom. Specific and custom work-related tools that may or may not need excessive bandwidth

Social media and Entertainment applications: Facebook, Instagram, Twitter, entertainment video platforms - YouTube, Netflix and similar applications.

By implementing AI and ML-based algorithms, REZRV ensures that application priority can easily be interchanged as desired and need arises by the user from one to the other. Further these policies can be dynamically pushed from a cloud to the changing needs of a business or a factory.

 

Do I care about the management of bandwidth in my house?

How many times you have told your kids to not watch movies on Netflix or Hulu so that they can focus on their school or homework? How many times you have had to stop all the file downloads or kill unnecessary applications in an office or home environment so that your Zoom meeting can go smoothly? How many times you had wished that all the “spam sites” on the Internet cannot get into your network?

If the answer is “many times”, then welcome to the world of REZRV- a new and easy way to give you knobs through an App or a Smart Speaker.

The previous generation routers were able to offer some of the REZRV functionality in an in-efficient way. This was possible because the technology was developed on layer 2 and the packets communicated with fixed port numbers. In addition, these routers often were able to identify by using a technology called deep packet inspection technology which means that any traffic was coming from websites starting with http:// are not encrypted can be easily identified. However, these days due to security concerns all packets are transmitted in a secured way (https://) essentially rendering the deep packet inspection like technologies useless or in-effective. The need for a proper bandwidth management solution still exists and this is where REZRV enhances the bandwidth management application needs.

Let’s re-visit the use case mentioned above

Consider there are ten employees in an office. Five of them are working on a critical office proposal due on the next day. Three people are downloading large software files that are not required for any immediate use. The remaining two users are streaming work-related video content. This results in a scenario where the bandwidth is stressed to the maximum and workflows slow down for everyone. The highest impact is for the person that has a proposal due the next day. One way to address this is to request your co-workers to free up bandwidth so the critical task of finishing the proposal goes on. A REZRV based router will ensure that this situation will not occur due to the inherent intelligence built in to the system that recognizes these different work flows and ensures that the bandwidth allocation and management policies are set that everyone is able to finish the tasks seamlessly while managing the internet bandwidth efficiently.

In such a scenario the presentation would be categorized as critical applications and their colleagues who working on video and downloading software files will automatically be categorized as lower priority. The system is still smart to ensure that even though they applications are categorized as lower priority the network airtime for such applications will still be managed and scheduled by REZRV in such a manner that they will be completed normally. The time taken for completion of these activities will be barely noticeable by anyone while still ensuring that proper bandwidth allocation and sharing has been done for all in a timely and meaningful manner

At home, if any of the parents, kids have a situation where they are freelancing, work or study at home, then they can use REZRV to customize bandwidth application in such that everyone gets to use the internet without screaming or fighting with each other, even if the kids are streaming games and movies during their allocated play hours, after all we also believe that all study and no play is bad for you. In that extreme case you can count on Alexa or Google to execute your wish to be that strict parent by shutting down their specific game on video streams.
