F5 GLOSSARY

Bandwidth

Bandwidth is a measure of the data capacity of a network connection, representing how quickly data can be sent from one point to another. Despite being cheap and often plentiful, additional bandwidth delivers diminishing returns as a solution to network and application performance problems. The optimization of data and the use of technologies such as WAN acceleration can do more to improve throughput and mitigate latency on existing networks.
