Bandwidth usage monitoring tells a bigger story
Netify’s bandwidth usage monitoring gives a quick, easy way to see who’s using bandwidth on the network, for what purpose and from where. But that’s only part of the story.
On any finite resource like bandwidth, organizations are always going to have users or devices that consume more than their fair share. It’s the '80/20 rule' where 20 per cent of users could be eating up 80 per cent of the bandwidth at any given time. Netify’s simple bandwidth usage monitoring reports can be used for network infrastructure planning, budgeting and forecasting – particularly in situations up against a data usage cap, or making a business case to upgrade Internet plans.
Unusual bandwidth activity - like sudden spikes in uploads or downloads at odd hours - can be a tell-tale sign of a potential cyber security breach or attack. This is where bandwidth usage monitoring from Netify can help with taking action early and avoiding major issues later on.
Keep better tabs on bandwidth costs
Bandwidth costs can creep up for several reasons. But disputes or quality of service (QoS) issues - like poor quality video calls, or sluggish web browsing - with Internet Service Providers do come up. Netify provides clear and qualitative data to help back up claims and diagnose issues.
Also - in countries where it’s possible to rack up charges for network traffic that crosses certain geographic boundaries or borders, Netify’s bandwidth usage monitoring can help prevent additional fees by pinpointing where bandwidth usage is coming from.
