What is Traffic Shaping?

Traffic Shaping prioritizes data transfer on Internet connections in such a way that you can actually use your maximum bandwidth in both directions. In addition, cFos and cFosSpeed control data transfer to ensure ping times always remain minimal. For more information, please refer to our explanation of Traffic Shaping

How can I determine the benefits of cFos Traffic Shaping myself?

You should notice the following effects:

  • Smooth surfing / Web-site loading
  • Maximum download rate while uploading
  • Low ping times during upload, download, and while filesharing
  • Gaming connections remain responsive even during simultaneous data transfer
  • Better line quality for Voice-over-IP (VoIP)

You don't have to believe this, but you can measure it by yourself: Manual

How do I optimally calibrate cFos / cFosSpeed?

  • Clear the traffic shaping data by clicking on "clear calibration data"
  • Make a short full-speed download. (5-10 seconds)
  • Make a longer full-speed upload (30 sec - 1 min).
    It is important that this upload is as fast as possible, i.e., that the server you're sending to is near and powerful (like your mail server or some fast FTP server). moreover, it is important that you have no downloads running while you do this upload. with an upstream of 256 kbit/s you need to send some 2 mbyte to the other side.
  • That's it. The connection is well calibrated if you have a full-blast upload and still have low ping times (both can be watched in the status window).
