Bequant tcp traffic booster

Anyone has experience in Bequant's tcp optimizer? http://www.bequant.com/bta.html
Probably the same can be done by a Mikrotik CCR although they claim some patented technologies.
And if someone can make same, send me a pm and give me a price for a 500Mbp backbone connection.
