Title: What makes your cloud updates different from what others vendors are offering?
Post by: Kakashi::. on August 05, 2013, 10:44:44 AM

StreamBoost™ routers are shipped with the latest in device and application detection stored on them. The dynamic nature of the Internet, however, will generally render any set of detection and policy information obsolete in a very short time frame. To keep up, StreamBoost™ routers are always gathering data that will help us optimize application and device detection as part of the cloud subscription. The data being gathered is simply a few hundred packets from unknown streams that that can be analyzed to determine the application type. This may be from new application services, or simply because a known application has changed network structure. Once analyzed, processed and tested, the new definitions will automatically be updated to your router.
