Many customers have expressed concerns and feedback regarding the relatively high data usage of InControl 2 with our router products (Ref: https://forum.peplink.com/threads/2990-InControl2-Data-Usage), we reckon this is an issue and are working on a “Low Bandwidth Mode” to help customers minimize and optimize data usage.
Here is the overview of our upcoming design and we need your help to tell us if this is what you want.
First, we will break the reported information into multiple categories:
- WAN/SF up/down
- Bandwidth usage
- App-level (Layer 7) information
- Client info/usage
- Signal strength
- (what else??)
Second, you can pick the interval for the reported data - every 5/10/30/60/120s or custom.
Third, when you check/uncheck these options, we have a “Usage Calculator” that immediately tells you the estimated usage/mo.
You can then mix-and-match and minimize the usage with only the information you want.
We love to hear your comments!
