Badu Networks Boosts Wi-Fi Performance 2x to 54x for Leading L.A. Coworking Company Procolo
After an ISP bandwidth upgrade didn't meet expectations, WarpGateway™ improved performance by an average of 2x, and up to 54x for some use cases

"Fast, always available Wi-Fi is vital for employee productivity and customer satisfaction in any business," said George Montgomery, Procolo CEO and Founder. "We host a wide range of companies from fintech startups to creative agencies that can't function without it. That's why we chose WarpGateway, after a major bandwidth upgrade didn't deliver the peak performance we expected."
Procolo purchased a 1 Gbps ISP package, and deployed a total of 20 access points. This should have been more than adequate for their 100-plus Wi-Fi users. Unfortunately, up to 60% of their bandwidth was underutilized, because their upgrade didn't deal with jitter, the real issue driving it. Jitter is now the leading cause of throughput collapse due to the nature of today's networks and applications.
On business Wi-Fi networks, RF interference, fading, and channel access conflicts caused by sudden increases in users create jitter that protocols such as TCP treat as congestion, slowing traffic to prevent data loss until throughput collapses, even when plenty of bandwidth is available. As a result, connections drop, videos pause, and applications stall. Adding bandwidth often increases the incidence of jitter-induced throughput collapse, minimizing performance gains, as Procolo discovered.
WarpGateway™ overcomes jitter-induced throughput collapse to deliver orders of magnitude improvement in upload and download speeds on existing Wi-Fi networks for all types of traffic – encrypted, unencrypted or compressed. In addition, the one-time cost of WarpGateway™
