Bandwidth Control Software


Bandwidth Control

Bandwidth is the maximum capacity of a wired or wireless network connection link to transmit certain amount of data from the source point to the destination point in a fixed amount of time. Some of the common issues while managing a large scale network are,

  • Slow internet speeds,
  • Patchy VoIP calls and streams,
  • Webpages loading slowly or getting timed out entirely,
  • Trouble connecting to the cloud, etc.

Control Bandwidth using ManageEngine NetFlow Analyzer: More than a Bandwidth Controller

ManageEngine's NetFlow Analyzer is one such web-based bandwidth monitoring tool that performs in-depth traffic analysis in real-time using data exported from multiple Network flows like Netstream / C-flow / J-Flow / sFlow / IPFIX / AppFlow flows.

How does a network bandwidth controller work?

NetFlow Analyzer has been optimizing thousands of networks across the world by giving a holistic view on the network bandwidth and traffic patterns. NetFlow Analyzer collects and analyses the flows, and provides insights about your network bandwidth usage. NetFlow Analyzer ensures that appropriate bandwidth levels are available for your business critical applications at all times.

Why is a bandwidth control software important?

Gain Visibility:

To gain bandwidth control and fix bandwidth issues, gaining visibility into current, and former bandwidth usage plays a pivotal role. Netfow Analyzer provides support for all major devices like Cisco, 3COM, Juniper, Foundry Networks, Hewlett-Packard, Extreme and other popular vendors.

Gather insights for bandwidth control:

Once the flow is exported, monitor the network's bandwidth, measure bandwidth usage, and traffic patterns at an interface/device - specific level with the bandwidth control software and find the root cause of any issue with ease. Each report has a drill down option in the reports that provides deeper insights like source IP, destination IP, and the conversation. These reports can be used to moderate traffic patterns and improve the device's performance.

The Bandwidth control device helps the Network Administrators to also keep a tab on key performance metrics of voice and data traffic. Cisco IP SLA technology also ensures high quality video and voice calls.

Bandwidth control and troubleshooting:

NetFlow Analyzer leverages on Cisco's Network Based Application Recognition (NBAR) to give you profound visibility on any application to recognize and classify business critical applications from non-essential applications. These non-critical applications can be mapped by mentioning their protocol, port and IP address, to monitor the traffic of a particular application (say, a certain web site, ex. Netflix, Instagram, Youtube etc).

Using traffic shaping techniques like Access Control List (ACL) offered by bandwidth control tool or by re-configuring the class-based policy, you can gain explicit visibility on these applications to keep their bandwidths in check.
