Grasping Bandwidth and Throughout, How to Fully Utilize Network Bandwidth?
In the era of big data, the volume of data is growing day by day and the types of data are varied. As a result, big data interaction faces severe speed challenges. Returning to the essence, whether the transmission of TB-level large files and massive small files or both, network bandwidth utilization is the key to improve the data interaction efficiency. In order to ensure the rapid exchange of content, many enterprises spend a lot of money to improve the bandwidth, hoping that with the full use of network bandwidth, any network latency and packet loss will disappear.
Although bandwidth improving is important in file transmission, there are so many ways to uitilize the network. There are many factors that affect the success rate and speed of transmission, the most important of which is to distinguish the difference between bandwidth and throughput.
Bandwidth vs. Throughput
Firstly, we need to know, network bandwidth isn't equate to network throughout. Available network bandwidth determines the potential maximum speed of data movement, while throughput is the actual speed of data movement.
If files are moved in a long distance or crowded network environment without an appropriate software solution (for example, when using online file sharing tools such as FTP or Dropbox), throughput may be much lower than bandwidth, because the standard Internet transmission protocol TCP has obvious limitations. Upgrading the network without acceleration software is like moving from a country road to a highway while driving a scooter. If the transportation organization allows, it can drive at ultra-high speed, but the vehicle only keeps the same slow speed on a wider road.
Indeed, many enterprises spends most costs in improving network bandwidth, but the actual transmission speed only get tiny imrovement, that made them depressed.
How to solve the problem network bandwidth utilization?
Internet enterprises may sometimes forget that purchasing more bandwidth is not the only way to speed up file transfer on the network or the Internet, and may not even be the best way. Choosing an effective solution has the same effect on the success rate and transmission speed of file transmission as enjoying private or public dedicated network. Facts have also proved that investing in the right file transfer solution is usually much better than spending money to upgrade bandwidth, after all, inferior transfer mechanisms may never fully utilize bandwidth.
Of course, in the revolution of bandwidth utilization, it is always affected by multiple factors. Our newest customer case - Foxrenderfarm. Raysync Transmission helps it to solve the difficulty in transmission of the bulk of files, which explains the factors that affects the file transmission efficiency.
With Raysync Transmission, your investment in greater bandwidth won’t go to waste. Our solutions ensure that bandwidth isn’t a conundrum anymore.
