Low Latency Live streaming and rtmp player behaviour

Hi, have setup a wowza origin and edge to server live video streams. In good latency locations, am able to achieve 3~4 Secs lags for all the live streams consistently however in poor connectivity locations, the video tends to lag after 30secs or so.

The player buffer length is set to 1sec, however would like to know whether is that any configurations can be set on the wowza edge or player to seek forward to reduce the lag?
