Rikei Starts to Sell Nomadix’s “Alloc8 – X Series,” Enabling the Reduction of the Load on Backbone Lines through Bandwidth Control and Management for Applications that Use the Internet

Rikei Corporation (Head Office: Shinjuku-ku, Tokyo; President & CEO: Satoru Isaka; hereinafter “Rikei”) is pleased to announce that it has begun sales of a new Internet gateway product ” Alloc8 – X Series ” from Nomadix Inc. (Head Office: Agoura Hills, California, USA; hereinafter “Nomadix”).

Market Background

While the Internet environment is expanding and convenient and useful applications are increasing, backbone lines are limited. When many users use applications with high volumes of data, the lines become congested, the transmission speed slows down, and some users are unable to access the Internet. Additionally, if the Internet is used as a line of communication in emergency situations, truly important communication may become impossible.

Overview of the New Product

▲19-inch rack-mountable

Nomadix’s “Alloc8 – X Series” makes it easy to manage and check usage, and it allows administrators to shut down individual applications or limit their bandwidth. This makes it possible to provide services evenly to many users.

Additionally, it can be used simply by inserting into existing networks without major changes to the settings.


  • Easy to check applications in use

Easy to visually check applications in use, frequency of use, and times used.

▲Usage per application

  • Set policies for each application individually

Bandwidth limitations and shut downs can be set and managed easily for each application.

Select an application to limit based on its usage. Then, specify the action to be taken when the application is detected from the pull-down menu.

▲Sample setting

  • No need for major network changes

Simple in-line configuration* enables simple introduction without changing the IP addresses or redesigning the network when introducing devices. Additionally, it is mountable on a 19-inch rack.
*In-line configuration: Configuration in which a device is directly inserted between a WAN router and LAN device.

Future Plans

We plan to sell the “Alloc8 – X Series” to local governments, companies, hotels, and universities that are facing line load issues in their Internet access environment.
