Top 7 culprits that slow down speed and performance of your network
It is easy to think that a sluggish network requires an infrastructure upgrade to maintain speeds. Often the problem is not that the users watch too many videos, but that there are bottlenecks in the network that need to be dealt with before breaking the bank for new equipment.
• Persistently slow network is difficult to pinpoint and problems can be more than one.
• Bandwidth is frequently considered a culprit. But investigation frequently reveals that the problem lies within the WAN, where capacity is more finite and expensive, and not the LAN as is commonly believed.
• Instead of getting more bandwidth, it is recommended that more intelligent analysis be used to optimize bandwidth, regardless of where the problem is – LAN, WAN or WLAN.
• End-to-end latency and any errors causing re-transmission on the network will also bring down application performance and slow down the network.
• Short on resources, small and medium-sized businesses need the latest networking tools for fast speed and office performance to help them oversee their networks.
• Incorrectly configured network or network port can also adversely affect throughput efficiency of a particular network path
• A robust network-monitoring tool can check the status of network devices apart from other useful information, such as letting you know if the device CPU or memory utilization is too high.
