Traffic Management

Traffic management is essential for the efficient flow of traffic through a network. This means that it is basic to the moment-to-moment running of a network. Traffic management is a key factor in QoS. Traffic management functionality provides advance warnings of performance-critical conditions so that network managers can re-route traffic before it affects QoS. Part of traffic management is real-time detection of network failures and correction of unavoidable network failures. This may allow users to be forewarned or otherwise proactively address the situation to minimise negative effects on QoS.
