Unlock the Power of broadband bandwidth monitoring

Broadband traffic management or broadband bandwidth monitoring is the management and control of network or subscriber traffic based on static or dynamic rules, and usually involves placing limits on the upload and download speeds. This best practice among operators ensures consistent and equitable service quality and user experience. Broadband traffic management is typically imposed during peak hours and during busy hours to control over-usage and network congestion. Typically, broadband providers present guidelines on their broadband traffic management policies, or fair usage policies, to help subscribers better understand the limits and consequences of their usage.


Historically, industry discussions surrounding traffic policies and fair usage were met with negative and punitive connotations; however, with the recent unprecedented usage growth, the dialogue has become necessary in order to meet the new and growing demands to deliver an optimal quality of service. In fact, as a result of these broadband monitoring and bandwidth policies, subscriber satisfaction have improved and revenue opportunities have increased.
