Home Resource Center Glossary Bandwidth

Bandwidth refers to the width of a communications channel, and it may be helpful to envision bandwidth as a hose or pipe that carries data communications instead of water. Comparatively a communications channel (such as a T1 line) could be said to have a wide bandwidth, while a lower-speed communications channel (such as a 56 Kb dial-up line) could be said to have a narrow bandwidth.

Bandwidth is typically expressed in bits-per-second (bps) in the digital world. With recent advances in performance, bandwidth speeds may now be expressed in Mbps (megabits per second) or Gbps (gigabits per second).

Both the Thunder and  AX Series feature high throughput levels to support high bandwidth requirements.
