  • Neither BranchCache nor PeerCache are directly about managing bandwidth. They are about ensuring content is retrieved from a local source, no different than a DP just not using a dedicated server system at each remote location.

    LEDBAT and BITS and the only true bandwidth management technologies natively leveraged by ConfigMgr.

  • Hi,

    Configuration Manager supports several options for managing content between peer devices on the same network, such as BranchCache, Delivery Optimization, Configuration Manager peer cache, and here is the table to compare major features of these technologies.

    You may refer to the link for more details about content management in Configuration Manager:

  • Thanks Jason .

    bits throttling i think not recommended by Microsoft  at client level because it will affect every thing , but on server side we can use it .right ?

  • Not at all. It works fine and all client downloads use BITS whether you've configured throttling or not.

    It's not a perfect solution and it's not as "good" as LEDBAT in many ways, but it still can and does work fine. As noted, it's also not optional, it's always used. Whether you choose to set throttling limits or not is up to you and yes, these are global for all BITS transfers on a specific Windows system. To reinforce though, not setting BITS throttling limits doesn't mean BITS isn't being used for bandwidth management though.
