Appliance USB Demo

The Appliance USB Demo is a self-contained, bootable system image file that will allow you to verify hardware compatibility and test product features before purchasing a Software License, and also allows for product testing prior to the purchase of a Hardware Appliance. Once you download the image and burn it to a locally-purchased USB flash drive, you can then boot from USB and test a fully functional ET/BWMGR Bandwidth Management system in your network.

Choosing Hardware

If you need to manage a lot of traffic, we recommend buying a Hardware Appliance; not because we make more money, but because we can fully support it. We actually charge more for software in many cases, because it's more work for us to support untested hardware, than it is to support hardware that we have in our development lab. When choosing hardware, please use our hardware selection guide.

Burning the USB Image

To download and write the image, you will need a computer with internet access, running Linux, FreeBSD, Windows, or Mac OS X, and a USB flash drive of 2GB or greater size. Windows machines will need additional software to "burn" the image to the USB device.
