Difference between Bandwidth and Throughput

Bandwidth as a data transfer capacity and a period of time. So this is how much data we could potentially sign out of our network interface cards been left as measured in bits per second with different data rate units like kilobits per second megabits per second gigabits per second and terabits per second.

 

 

Throughput is the actual data transfer rate in a period of time. Bandwidth and throughput can be easily confused.

 

 

But just remember that bandwidth is how much data you could potentially send in a period of time but throughput is the actual data that’s been transferred in a period of time.

Testimonials

Lomoveishiy – Finland

I needed those to connect my PC on the third floor to have internet access in that room, and ISP installed their modem on the first floor only. After dropping fiber patch cables, plugged in all cables into these media converters at both sides, and link came up instantly. Was much easier than I thought!

Raymond – USA

Great experience – units worked straight out of the box – just needed plug in cables and we were done. I also like the possibility to enable jumbo frames, while we do not have a need for this feature at the current moment it’s great to have this option.
