Management and Control of Bandwidth in Computer Networks
The need for good and reliable data transmission within computer network and internet forms the basis for management and control of bandwidth. Without bandwidth management, an application or user will not be able to control all available bandwidth and prevent other applications or users from using the networks. It will be impossible to differentiate between various network traffics, and it will also be difficult to control which user or application has priority on the network. Applications which require specific quantity and quality of service may not be predicted in terms of available bandwidth, thus making some applications run poorly due to improper bandwidth allocation.
