cFosSpeed is a network driver, which attaches itself to existing Internet connections. It then optimizes data transfer by means of Traffic Shaping.
Traffic Shaping is a method for optimizing the Internet traffic. It allows maximum speed while ensuring minimal Ping.
You can use cFosSpeed with a router and/or a DSL-modem or cable-modem. You can also use cFosSpeed with other types of Internet access, ie. whenever you already have an existing Internet connection.
cFosSpeed supports a wide variety of connections, like DSL, cable, ISDN, UMTS, WIMAX etc.
cFosSpeed has two goals
1. Keep network delays (ping times) small, in order to make Internet applications as responsive as possible.
2. Improve data throughput by avoiding network congestions.
You can use cFosSpeed with an Internet connection you use exclusively or which you share with several PCs.
# cFosSpeed prevents one application (e.g. sending email) from choking all others, like telephone calls, chat, etc.
# cFosSpeed keeps your ping times low, so you can play online games and download files simultaneously.
# All important data packets are automatically prioritized over unimportant ones. With the cFosSpeed program and protocol prioritization you can configure
- To help cFosSpeed work with mobile connections it now dynamically tries ping
- TTL values until someone answers, max with TTL 24. This should help some users, where the first 10 or so hops would not answer.
