How to set Variable Bandwidth Policy in UNIBOX?

UNIBOX allows administrators to change the user's bandwidth on runtime based on the bandwidth rule defined under this policy. The variable bandwidth policy is a run-time policy i.e. the restrictions are applied to user's session while the session is still in progress. This allows the administrators to curtail the bandwidth usage of heavy Internet users thus enforcing a fair usage policy on the network.

The policy can be defined on a user group. All users under that group will automatically get the policy restrictions. The table displays the name of the policy, the user group, the upload and download bandwidth of the groups.
