Directing Traffic: Managing Internet Bandwidth Fairly
Paine, Thomas A.; Griggs, Tyler J.
EDUCAUSE Quarterly, v31 n3 p66-70 2008
Educational institutions today face budgetary restraints and scarce resources, complicating the decision of how to allot bandwidth for campus network users. Additionally, campus concerns over peer-to-peer networking (specifically outbound Internet traffic) have increased because of bandwidth and copyright issues. In this article, the authors describe how a university employs an in-house bandwidth management system to administer Internet traffic. Using the open source software to build a traffic management system gave the campus network neutrality, low costs, and low maintenance for managing bandwidth. (Contains 2 figures, 1 resource and 6 online resources.)
