Abstract: Bandwidth management is one of the most widely misunderstood subjects in modern networking. Bandwidth Management is a lot like economics, because the complexities of how it works are beyond simple logic. Internet “bandwidth” is not a spectrum; traffic streams are one bit at a time. Bandwidth on the internet can only be conceptualized over time, and the amount of time that you talk about can greatly change the user experience. For reliable data transmission within computer network and internet forms the basis for management and control of bandwidth. Without bandwidth management, an user will not be able to handle all available bandwidth on the networks. It will be impossible to differentiate between various network traffics, and it will also be difficult to control which user or application has priority on the network. Applications which require specific quantity and quality of service may not be predicted in terms of available bandwidth, thus making some applications run poorly due to improper bandwidth allocation. This work focus on the development of an application to combat the challenges facing easy flow of data transmission problems in network design as organization network evolves. Here PHP Script, Apache Server and MySQL are the development tools used.
