Bandwidth and Latency

Define the term Bandwidth and Latency?




The Network performance is measured in Bandwidth (that is, throughput) and Latency (Delay). The bandwidth of a network is given by the number of bits which can be transmitted over the network in a specific period of time.

Latency communicates how long it takes a message to travel from one end of a network to the other. This is firmly measured in terms of time.
