  • ENABLE BURSTING: Enables you to adjust burst speed configuration.
  • BURST LIMIT: 

    This is the maximum data rate a subscriber will download and upload in relation to speeds configured in their service plan, this is usually a percentage of upload & download speed values.
    Customers on a 2 Mbps download service plan with burst-limit set to 70% of 2 Mbps then their burst speed will be 3.4 Mbps.

    70% of 2 Mbps = 3.4 Mbps

  • BURST TIME: It is erroneous to assume that burst time is when burst mechanism will be activated.
    Burst time is amount of time average data rate is calculated.
  • BURST THRESHOLD: If we set the burst threshold to 50% of a 2 Mbps plan, the threshold speed value will be set to 1 Mbps. Therefore, burst will be deactivated when the average speed, during burst-time, reaches 1 Mbps.
