A CDE Definition
Controlling the traffic flow in a network to avoid congestion. See bandwidth manager.
Software that can prioritize communications by allowing high-priority traffic to use more available bandwidth in the network than lower-priority data. For example, real-time video can be given more bandwidth than file transfers. Large file transfers could be given a lower priority than smaller ones. All of the adjustments are designed to make traffic flow smoothly and avoid congestion. See traffic engineering.
