As organizations continue migrating mission critical applications and business processing to distributed computing environments, network utilization and the number of bandwidth-intensive applications with continue increasing. Costly network infrastructure upgrades are forcing organizations to explore alternative management methodologies for addressing bandwidth congestion control. In an era of stagnant budgets and increasing IT requirements, DoD is no exception. The enactment of the Information Technology Management Reform Act of 1996 mandates investigating cost-effective ways of managing 21st century network resources. This study reviews traditional computing resource management and how resource management has changed with the addition of bandwidth as a decision variable. It then investigates current network management practices determined from a sample of business-sector organizations, academic institutions, and military installations, focusing on prioritization and chargeback as bandwidth controls. It then examines the future of prioritization and chargeback technologies and their potential impact on future DoD network operations.
