Automated Download Queue for Enterprise to take the best use of Internet bandwidth


Bassa solves the problem of wasting internet bandwidth by queuing a download if it is larger than a given threshold value in high traffic and when the traffic is low, it completes the download of the files. After the files are downloaded, the users can get their files from the local servers which do not require external internet bandwidth.

Main functionalities

  • Provides an interface for users to add their downloads as links or torrent magnet links
  • Provide users an interface to view and download the files in local server
  • Provide a rating system to users to rate the files residing in local server
  • Automatically start and stop downloading in given time frame
  • Automatically clean the disks and make room for new downloads
  • Notify user when his/her download is completed
  • Mark inappropriate downloads
  • Provides admins an interface to deal with inappropriate files

How to Use Bassa

  • After Setting up Bassa, Login/Register.There are two types of users in Bassa- (1) The Admin and (2) The Normal Users.
  • A user can add a link through the webapp and Bassa stores it in the local server right away. This way multiple users can add various links, but the downloads won’t start right away.
  • The organisation admin can start the downloads at a time of his/her liking.
  • Then the users who had added links for certain files can download them from the local servers at a much higher speed.
  • You can even watch a video tutorial for the same on Youtube
