How You can Prevent Packet Loss

If you’ve ever been on a call when someone on your team starts sound a bit robotic, then you know how annoying packet loss can be. But packet loss can be far more troublesome, causing bad experiences that can be detrimental to the business.
 
A variety of issues can lead to packet loss. These include a slow down in network speeds, bottlenecks, and network throughput and bandwidth. And, notably, packet loss isn’t just a VoIP problem. It can affect your overall IT network, creating a multitude of problems that will plaque IT administrators.
 
Spending money on extra IT infrastructure and more bandwidth is at best a short-term fix that leaves the root cause unaddressed. What you really need to do is probe into the why behind the packet loss, examining common culprits such as:

  • Software bugs
  • Security threats
  • Network congestion
 
Once you’ve discovered the root cause, you can better determine the solution best suited to addressing packet loss on your network.
