Kemp | Glossary of Terms and Phrases


Strictly speaking the term Bandwidth, when used in relation to computer networks, is the theoretical or peak data transfer rate that is possible between 2 network nodes. The term has also become used as a loose way of describing the actual throughput that is occurring during data transfer on a network. For example, the transfer rate of a file from a remote web server to a computer in Mega bits per second (Mbps).
