The concepts of bandwith vs latency are one of the most misunderstood and confusing concepts in computer networking. Bandwidth is measured in “bits per second”, and is a measure of how much data volume we can pass over the network in a given amount of time. Latency however is measured in increments of time, small fractions of a second, and describes how long it takes for a bit of data to move from one end of a network to the other. This paper sets out the path to ensure that the path from your computer hardware to the next layer is optimized.
