Latency Sensitivity and High Bandwidth Apps This lesson discusses different methods and rationales for network performance optimization. When optimizing a network; it is important to assess a system for latency sensitivity. Certain services are most sensitive to latency such as VoIP, video and RDP. Latency sensitivity means a service is affected by a slow connection, such as when a video pauses to buffer or when there is a long during a Skype call. High bandwidth applications might be latency sensitive, but they use a lot of network traffic. Services such as video and music streaming and cloud applications take up a lot of room on the network.
