Bandwidth Management that is applied in certain organization or enterprise network implies tools and mechanisms that control traffic passing through Local Area Network (LAN) and Internet connection (or WAN). These tools are to provide traffic flows regulation that helps to achieve fair speeds of upload and download for end network subscribers and to increase overall network performance.
The next step of bandwidth management is to reduce bandwidth costs to organization's budgets, then to monitor network state to see if some business applications are creating loss in network performance during congestion times.
Savings that are achieved from applied bandwidth management solution almost always encourage growth of organization's Return On Investment (ROI) level. Small and Medium-sized Enterprises (SMEs) would gain the benefits of newly deployed WAN services at the same time maintaining network applications response times that will suit end users.
Troubleshooting network performance is a critical task for every network administrator to keep Internet connection working fast and smoothly. This can be attained by traffic managing that is often described as bandwidth management, traffic shaping, congestion control, traffic control or traffic management.
Traffic Engineering Server (TES) is NAT router with Bandwidth Management and QoS features that provide powerful tool set to monitor, analyze and manage traffic in wide range of IP networks. Among bandwidth management features TES brings are the following:
- Bi-directional Traffic Shaping
- Unlimited Bandwidth Management Profiles
- Hard or Burstable Bandwidth Limiting
