4 Elements that Jolt Network Bandwidth

Ponder about the streets you commute every day. What would occur if the traffic engineers who designed these roadways did not take into account the numbers of cars travelling on them, road width and the number of lanes? They would not be able to accommodate a certain amount of traffic at a certain average speed. Traffic would be a disaster, there would be bottlenecks and hold ups, and it would be hard to get where you needed to be.

The same holds true for your network – it’s only as adequate as the planning that goes into it. Different types of applications require different network bandwidth levels. Each task fulfilled using your network takes up network bandwidth, with many bits per second navigating across the network. Knowing and how much bandwidth each application uses is key to ensuring the functionality, reliability and speed of your network.
