Channel Capacity

Channel capacity refers to data traffic that can be handled by a channel, or the total amount of bandwidth that a channel may have.

What Small and Midsize Businesses Need to Know About Channel Capacity

A small business should be aware of its channel capacity, especially if they are a data-intensive or internet-intensive business. Channel capacity can affect the speed at which information can be sent from the business in question. A small business may need to make major investments in improving its channel capacity if its rates of data transmission are inadequate.
