Definition of bandwidth

“Bandwidth” is a part of “Computer Networking and “Computer Science”. “Bandwidth, Network Bandwidth, Data Bandwidth and Digital Bandwidth” is a capacity of bit rate of available or consumed data communication resources expressed in bits per second or multiples of it (bit/s, kbit/s, Mbit/s, Gbit/s etc.). Usually, in Digital Communications, Wireless Communications, Electronics, Modem Data Transmission etc. “Bandwidth” is used to submit to “Analog Signal Bandwidth” calculated in “Hertz”. “Bandwidth” word is used in the field of signal processing. According to “Hartley’s Law”, the “Digital Data Rate Limit” of a physical communication link is proportional to its “Bandwidth” in “Hertz” for your Computer.

Characteristics of bandwidth

Definition of bandwidth

a) Bandwidth tests

“Bandwidth” tests calculate the maximum throughput of a Computer Network. You can test your “Bandwidth” of Computer Network to know “Bandwidth Performance” in your Computer.

b) Network bandwidth consumption

Network bandwidth consumption is plays a vital role for your Computer Network. Bandwidth in bit/s may also refer to “Consumed Bandwidth”, corresponding to achieved goodput or throughput, which means, the “Average Rate of Successful Data Transfer” through a communication path. You can use concepts and technologies such as Bandwidth Allocation, Bandwidth Management, Bandwidth Shaping, Bandwidth Throttling and Bandwidth Cap. A bit stream’s “Bandwidth” is relative to the average “Consumed Signal Bandwidth” in “Hertz”. Usually, for any effective “Digital Communication”, a framing “Protocol” is required; overhead and effective throughput depends on execution.

c) Network bandwidth capacity

“Bandwidth” refers the net “Bit Rate Channel Capacity” or “The Maximum Throughput” of a logical or physical communication path in a “Digital Communication System” for your Computer.

 

For example- According to “Hartley’s Law”, the “Maximum Data Rate” of a physical communication link is proportional to its “Bandwidth” in “Hertz” for your Computer. Sometimes, this is called Signal Bandwidth, Frequency Bandwidth, Analog Bandwidth, Spectral Bandwidth etc.

 

d) Multimedia bandwidth

“Digital Bandwidth” means “Multimedia Bit Rate” or “Average Bitrate” after “Multimedia Data Compression”. The total quantity of Data divided by the playback time.

e) Asymptotic bandwidth

The “Asymptotic Bandwidth” for a Computer Network is calculating of “Maximum Throughput” for a greedy source. As other “Bandwidth”, the “Asymptotic Bandwidth” is calculated in multiples of bits per seconds.

 

For example- The Message Size (The number of packets per second from a source) shown as “Infinity”.

 

f) Web hosting bandwidth

Definition of bandwidth

“Bandwidth” is often incorrectly used to describe the amount of data transferred to or from the Website or Server within a prescribed period of time in “Website Hosting”. A “Maximum quantity of Data Transfer” for each month or given period is “Monthly Data Transfer” for your Internet Website”.

 

For example- “Bandwidth Consumption” is calculated in gigabytes for per month’s usage for your “Internet Website”.

 

g) Internet connection bandwidth

When, you will take a “New Internet Connection” for your Computer, that time, you should follow the below “Internet Connection Bandwidth Chart” to make proper decision which “Internet Connection” is the best for your Computer to use Internet in your Computer.

Tips

 

a) If you have “Many Internet Users” for your Website, that time, you need to Purchase much more “Bandwidth” from the “Website Hosting Company” for getting the better performance from your Website. Otherwise, your Website will not Run perfectly in Internet.

b) You should take the “High Speed Internet Connection Bandwidth” to get the better performance to use the Internet in your Computer.

c) When, you will take a “New Internet Connection” for your Computer, that time, you should follow the above “Internet Connection Bandwidth Chart” to make proper decision which “Internet Connection” is the best for your Computer to use Internet in your Computer.
