As high availability requirements, new applications, and multimedia increase pressure on networks, IT is learning that adding bandwidth isn't enough to solve traffic related problems. Network administrators must also find ways to manage network resources effectively and efficiently.

Policy based networks have the intelligence, in the form of business rules, needed to govern network operations.
