Abstract

Due to the increasing number of enrollments every year, the addition of more personal computers with network connection will only congest the network which is currently overwhelmed. Successful provision of managed internet access within a university is likely to involve the application of many tools encircling a number of different techniques. Fortunately, there exists a cost-effective solution to Bindura University of Science Education (BUSE) that can be deployed regardless of the campus’ existing network configuration or the already installed devices. Literature recommends that using congestion control mechanisms, Quality of Service and other bandwidth management strategies will enable network administrators to control the flow of network traffic so that students and staff get priority during the allocation of network resources. The expected outcome of this project is to optimize internet speed on campus and ensuring a fair internet access to all users. Upon implementation of this system, it is hoped that the issues concerning slow internet access on campus are at least reduced to allow a better and feasible environment for students to access internet on campus. From this research, it can be concluded that quota-based management system can perform a variety of schemes including access restrictions based on the use of packet data with the restriction of bandwidth for each user and also time used.Due to the increasing number of enrollments every year, the addition of more personal computers with network connection will only congest the network which is currently overwhelmed.
