What's the use of managing bandwidth?
Author: JT Smith
NewsFactor Network writes "Visiting this year's Western Cable Show, I noticed that there were many booths and vendors housed under the subject of "bandwidth management." I suppose bandwidth management has become the latest solution to the problems experienced by many broadband operators. Broadband operators find themselves in this position where the services they are offering over their cable television wires, DSL lines, wireless technologies, or satellite delivery media are beginning to consume increasing amounts of their available bandwidth. The proposed solutions to this problem have got me wondering exactly how traffic can be managed in the first place."
