New version: cFosSpeed v6.5 with major Traffic Shaping update!
cFosSpeed - The Internet Accelerator!
cFosSpeed is a network driver which attaches itself to existing Internet
connections. It optimizes data transfer by means of Traffic Shaping. Traffic
Shaping is a method for optimizing Internet traffic that allows maximum
transfer speed while ensuring minimal ping time.
cFosSpeed supports a wide variety of connection types like DSL, cable, UMTS, ISDN, etc.
New feature: Packet-Loss Avoidance
Today's high download speeds often result in buffer
overflows in the broadband POPs. This leads to packet loss
and reduces the transfer speed and increases the ping time (because of
TCP retransmits). Now cFosSpeed detects such buffer
overflows early and prevents packet loss by continually adjusting
the download speed.
Packet-Loss Avoidance also aids the download Traffic Shaping.
cFosSpeed's unique RX-Shaping feature can now reduce ping
times to until now unprecedented values. Without RX-Shaping
fast downloads unmistakably tie up your Internet connection.
With cFosSpeed they are now hardly noticeable.
Decisive Traffic Shaping improvements
All Traffic Shaping regulation parameters for the sending and
receiving direction have been re-adjusted and optimized.
This results in even lower ping times while allowing maximum
upload and/or download speeds, see graphics below.
cFosSpeed's regulation quality is also important for
ping variance / jitter. This improves the MOS value for
cFosSpeed now allows you to manually setup the delay
regulation parameters. Depending on the application the
user can configure the desired maximum ping times for
upload and download. This means that the user can manually
reduce ping times at the expense of upload or download
Extremely low ping times in "low-latency" mode
Hardcore gamers and VoIP users can now benefit from
low-latency mode with even lower delays. In this
mode cFosSpeed favors ping times even if this results
in slightly decreased transfer rate.
