Network optimisation | Kiwi Advanced Research and Education Network

Standard commercial networks often constrain capacity, which means that the performance of your network, hardware and devices may be dialled back to ensure a smooth experience under these restricted conditions. To get the best performance from KAREN you may need to make some tuning and configuration adjustments to your KAREN connection or your internal network.
