Hello. I'm new to this so excuse my obvious ignorance!

I work for a digital signage company. We are trying to set
up a signage application for a major mall retailer. This
retailer currently installs Afaria on (apparently) all PC's
in their network (touchscreen applications). From what I've
been told, these are NOT mobile applications...anyway...I
need to know if Afaria'a functions will interfere with the
network traffic caused by RSS feeds and/or signage playback.
In other words, our software will require persistent,
unobstructed bandwidth to perform, pulling RSS feeds
internally (in store) and updating data from these RSS every
minute or so.

Any help would be appreciated!

D.L.
Afaria generally does not require a whole lot a bandwidth. If the
customer is using Afaria for File Transfer events, then it will require some
bandwidth (depends on size of files to some degree). If available bandwidth
is a concern, Afaria does have a feature called Dynamic Bandwidth Throttling
(BWT) that the customer can enable on the Afaria Server that will allow the
Afaira Client to "play nicer" and reduce the amount of data transmitted,
thus allowing more available bandwidth for other applications. BWT can be
tuned for most any network. Be aware that finding the appropriate
configuration for BWT will require thorough testing.

Thanks,
Chris
