Advanced Application Reporting: Relief for Congested Networks


“Pandora Man.” “NannyCam Watcher.” “Big File Boss.” Almost every enterprise employs at least one of these individuals who have earned the “Bandwidth Hog” moniker. Although we might not have nicknames like these for them, their extreme bandwidth usage routinely clogs the network. And when networks aren’t performing at optimum speed, neither are the employees connected to them. For businesses requiring a better handle on bandwidth planning and allocation, Windstream’s Advanced Application Reporting (AAR) offers hope for congested networks.

How state agencies connect with MPLS networking


Kentuckians will tell you there’s a lot to love about their state, from the bluegrass to its high quality of living.  But they may not tell you about how public schools, colleges, and businesses throughout the Commonwealth are connected through an advanced, flexible telecommunications network that rivals anything you’ll see in other states. Windstream helped design and implement that network, though, so we will.

Community and technical colleges, and state agencies throughout Kentucky have been linked together for the last five years, through an MPLS network. It gives students an incredible advantage, allowing them to take advantage of distance-based learning. For instance, students in a classroom in Hazzard can see a professor delivering a lecture from a classroom in Louisville, hundreds of miles away. And since they’re linked by both audio and video, they can engage in live-time discussions.
