Internet Connection

ISL AlwaysOn 2.2.5+

In ISL AlwaysOn 2.2.5, bandwidth usage was reduced. ISL AlwaysOn sends a ping packet to ISL Conference Proxy server in order to maintain online status every 30 seconds. There used to be additional packets sent every 5 seconds which were not required. This additional packet sending was removed, packets are now appended to ping packet, which results in less network traffic.

The ping packet to the server is 131 bytes every 30 seconds to the server, and the server will respond to each ping with the same packet.

ISL AlwaysOn 2.2.4 and below

For bandwidth, when a remote computer is available, ISL AlwaysOn uses ping packets to keep alive the connection.

Once ISL AlwaysOn service program registers with server, it will only send ping packet every 30 seconds. The server will respond to each ping with the same packet. Below the application level packet there is a SSL layer that wraps application data.


The payload data within a packet consists of 20 bytes.

ISL AlwaysOn ping packets are around 70 bytes on the TCP layer and the server responds with the same packet.

The total packet size will be around 90 bytes.

Default keep alive settings are used: 1 packet per second.

When connected to a remote computer, the required bandwidth minimum is not defined, although we recommend at least a 50 kbits/s connection for more comfortable work.
