What it means:
SmartCast is a sophisticated quality of service (QoS) engine specifically developed to maximize the reliability and performance of delay-sensitive applications, such as IP-based voice and video over 802.11 networks. Based on patented technology, SmartCast delivers a collection of unique capabilities — such as packet inspection, automatic traffic classification, advanced queuing and scheduling.
Why you should care:
With per-client queuing, SmartCast is ideal for video and voice over Wi-Fi applications because it ensures disruptive clients don’t negatively effect the performance of others clients on the network (no head-of-line blocking).
