Network Baselining

Network baselining is the act of measuring and rating the performance of a network in real-time situations. Providing a network baseline requires testing and reporting of the physical connectivity, normal network utilization, protocol usage, peak network utilization, and average throughput of the network usage.

Such in-depth network analysis is required to identify problems with speed and accessibility, and to find vulnerabilities and other problems within the network.

Once a network baseline has been established, this information is then used by companies and organizations to determine both present and future network upgrade needs as well as assist in making changes to ensure their current network is optimized for peak performance.
