Bandwidth management allows you to control the amount of bandwidth available to your customers. Used correctly, bandwidth management ensures that each user receives a fair share of bandwidth. The need to balance bandwidth usage can often cause network managers to increase bandwidth, speed up network traffic or cut access to applications – but this approach is short-term, not cost-effective and can actually contribute to network congestion.
Why Network Bandwidth Management is Very Important.
Excessive use of bandwidth in one part of your network can affect the performance of the entire network. Bandwidth problems can even affect services that are important to business and cause network disruptions. If you only buy additional bandwidth to reduce this problem, but you might just treat the symptoms of a bigger problem.
