Article Title: Managing and Improving Upon Bandwidth Challenges in Computer Network
by John S.N., Okonigene R.E., Matthews V.O., Akinade B., Chukwu I.S

Managing the bandwidth of a computer network is always faced with great challenges. This research was necessitated by the urgent need to manage the University network currently experiencing congestion in both the local LAN and on the internet backhaul with a view to improving network performance and reduce the huge recurrent on the WAN link. However, there exists various ways that have been deployed towards solving these problems. In this paper we examined existing bandwidth management, effect of limited bandwidth on the network performance and profound solutions of techniques that enhanced or improved the bandwidth efficiency. Also, included in this research work are the studies of the effect of limited bandwidth on work load, type of protocol used and the effect of network congestion on the quality of service of a Wide Area Network (WAN). By comparison, from the modeling of the effect of work load and limited bandwidth on the throughput of a wide area network based on experimental simulation and real time simulation scenarios, some observations were made and recommendation of solutions were given from the analyzed results.
Keywords: computer network management, bandwidth challenges, wide area network, computer network performance
