Bandwidth Management


Most corporate  organizations have millions of applications running on their network at any given time and depending on the application type, they have different management issues. Recreation and peer-to-peer traffic (P2P) traffic can consume essential bandwidth needed to power business applications.  There is an increasing need for corporate organizations to prioritize bandwidth use to align network resources with business objectives.

Do you know that YouTube, Facebook and other recreational traffic consume a great percentage of  WAN bandwidth?

Bandwidth Management

Bandwidth management is the process of Measuring and Controlling the communications (traffic, packets) on a network link, to avoid filling the link to capacity or overfilling the link, which would result in network congestion and poor performance of the network.
