We purchased a Packeteer packet shaper several months ago but installation
was delayed because of staff shortages at the City's IT Dept.  Now, they
tell us that the device is too small and we're hoping to trade it in on a
larger model.  

We have been monitoring traffic at all our branches and it's not pretty.  In
the next fiscal year, we have plans to upgrade circuits in branches where it
is feasible and add T1 lines everywhere else.  It's going to take a lot of
coordination and will be expensive but we've learned that it is better to be

Good luck,

Does anyone have a hardware device or service they would recommend to shape
or control bandwidth especially for video streaming so that heavy video
users can't use up the majority of the library's bandwidth?


Thanks, Ed
