Colocation Bandwidth

Colocation Bandwidth refers to the volume of data that a company is allocated to transmit on a network in a colocation center.

Depending on the customer’s needs, their billable colocation bandwidth might be based on the size of an internet connection, the precise amount of data transmitted, or an average of the volume of data typically sent through the network over a given time frame.

Savvy corporations can help keep their colocation bandwidth costs under control by taking advantage of their own on-premises capabilities to throttle certain activities or make calculations before submitting requests back to the server, for example.
