Policy Based an Effective and Efficient Bandwidth Optimisation for Performance Enhancement of an Organisation

Ashok Kumar Tripathi [2] | Ramesh Bharti

Abstract: Bandwidth management is a generic term that describes the various techniques, technologies, tools and policies employed by an organization to enable the most efficient use of its bandwidth resources -Efficient use- means both the minimisation of unnecessary bandwidth consumption and the delivery of the best possible levels of service to users. - Bandwidth resources- refers to the bandwidth of a network, which might be a local campus network, a Regional Area Network. The IT managers of all organisations are very much concerned to make proper utilisation of available network bandwidth and to make it sure that sufficient bandwidth is available to every user/application for productive work. With the exponential growth of digitally rich contents and Intranet computing demands for the last few years, the users often perceive that there is insufficient bandwidth available to completely satisfy their needs whereas the problem lies at the end of management who fails to identify certain bandwidth eating unproductive applications. In this paper an attempt is made to analyse and implement a policy framework for optimal utilisation of Intranet bandwidth by considering Organisational Networking System (ONS) of Chanakya Organisation, as a case study. To implement Policy-Based bandwidth management we applied ACLs on gateway routers, content filters on gateway routers, appropriate network nodes, proxy caches, Apply content filters to restrict prohibited content. To restrict applications and protocols and to priorities traffic, install various bandwidth shaping and priorisitation techniques. Monitor users and, where necessary, prevent their accessing prohibited Content. The findings of the study indicate that there is a need of good netiquette of all stakeholders as per IT policy. The IT policy must be framed and enforced for optimal utilisation of bandwidth in Chanakya
