Bandwidth Management

Bandwidth management is an important part of medium to large businesses, running an internet connection, as it helps you ascertain the most effective and best quality connection for your business. This is especially important for applications such as FTP, Email (SMTP) and VoIP that require a constant, changeable internet connection or any application that requires quality of service (QoS). Just increasing bandwidth isn’t enough to keep these programmes running at optimal efficiency as they need a controlled connection.
