Network Traffic Management: A Delicate Balance

Invited talk and webinar at USTelecom, February 23, 2012 (Washington, DC)

Network traffic management is a collection of techniques that Internet service providers may use to attain optimum performance for a diverse set of users. These techniques include the use of performance measures to define optional service levels tailored to different user needs as well as assure quality of service.

This free webinar discusses the nature of network traffic management, its effect on the orderly delivery of existing and future services, and its potential value in developing effective communications policy. Since network traffic management is very closely related to network neutrality, the webinar also describes the potential opportunities and land mines that network traffic management provides.
