Defining Bandwidth Management Policies

What is 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. Bandwidth management is measured in bits per second (bps) or Bytes per second (Bps).
