Making the most of your bandwidth with IQrouter

IQrouter is a smart router designed to get you the best Internet Quality possible from your line. It achieves this thanks to its intelligent traffic management that automatically optimizes itself for your specific communication line. Just like with cars traveling across limited capacity bridges, good traffic management ensures that things flow smoothly.  IQrouter smartly manages your data traffic, limiting and prioritizing flows according to the capacity of your line.

The typical ISP-supplied routers just let traffic congest and pile up, which is why most people have poor Internet Quality. Upgrading to an IQrouter will solve that.


Unique Features

Tailored Self-optimization

 IQrouter automatically optimizes itself while taking into account the type of Internet service (DSL, Cable or VDSL2) at your premises, as well as the actual upload and download speeds of that communication line. IQrouter’s intelligent decision-making process sets all the relevant traffic management parameters and then tests those parameters to make sure your Internet Quality grade is an A. The smart traffic-management algorithms dynamically adapt to your traffic, ensuring important information flows smoothly. 

Effective traffic management is the key to achieving high Internet Quality and IQrouter does it out-of-the-box.


Adaptive Quality Schedule

Since many lines vary in speed over time, IQrouter tracks and adapts to the changing profile of your line, always ensuring you have optimum quality. To get a good picture of your line, over a period of two weeks IQrouter regularly checks your quality and sets scheduled changes to the traffic-management settings to ensure you have the highest quality possible regardless of day or time.

At all times, the IQrouter is keeping track of latencies and if they get worse, it dynamically adapts so you get the the best results.

Quality Schedule Monitoring

Internet line settings or ISP capabilities can change over the medium and longer term, so the Quality Schedule Monitoring service continues to monitor and if necessary will adapt the schedule and the settings, all without you having to do a thing.

This protects you from sudden drops in service level from your ISP if they are over-selling in your area, or when your neighbors ditch their cable service and start streaming videos instead. It also catches opportunities to improve if the ISP deploys better infrastructure or if you upgrade your service plan. So regardless of when or how often your line capabilities change, your IQrouter will be delivering the best possible quality from your line at all times.


Line monitoring and alerting

To manage traffic, the IQrouter is constantly evaluating the conditions on the line, and if they vary, not only does it adjust to adapt if it can, it also captures these events so they can be presented in the customer dashboard. If the quantity and frequency of line changes are severe enough, it will also send you an alert email.
The line statistics are an incredibly powerful tool that helps you in discussions with your Internet Service provider, providing proof of line issues.
Many people have no idea just how much their line varies until they see the dashboard, and now they can do something about it and quantify the results.


Internet Service-agnostic

IQrouter delivers excellent results for all Internet service types, performing exceptionally well on DSL communication technology due to DSL’s very low upload speeds. In fact, for all communication line types, the more limited your upload bandwidth (available speed), the more you need traffic management. Whether DSL, Cable or VDSL2, IQrouter automatically adapts its traffic management and improves Internet Quality, taking you from grades of F, D and C to an A or A+. 


Flexible WiFi Placement

Typically, ISPs sell a combined modem-router-WiFi access point in a single box. Although this may appear efficient, these are low-quality, poor performers responsible for many Internet Quality problems. As well, if any one of the components fails, then the whole unit is useless. Last, but not least, the all-in-one unit forces the WiFi access point to be located wherever the modem is connected to the communication line, which is rarely optimal for WiFi access.
