Voice and Video over IP presents a case where you may indeed need to increase your bandwidth. If your company uses VoIP for communication with clients, or if you have applications that require VoIP, make sure that your network can handle it. VoIP is especially sensitive to jitter and packet loss, which could be caused by other traffic, so this is another category you want to protect.

It’s a common belief that bandwidth, memory, and disk space are all cheap. However, the apps that we use – whether running on our computers or on the cloud – are increasingly sophisticated, and often seem to grow at the same pace as the upgrades. Between real-time streaming, VoIP, and cloud trends, bandwidth can be overwhelmed, slowing everyone’s downloads and response times. While some organizations respond by buying ever more bandwidth, others are taking steps to reduce and prioritize the demand.

To help curb some of the bandwidth pain, Jim MacLeod of WildPackets provides common issues and illustrates how to identify and overcome them.
