RTT (Round-trip Time)

Round-trip time (RTT) or round-trip delay (RTD) is the number of milliseconds it takes for a network request to reach a destination, such as a server, and return to its starting point. Network administrators use this calculation to determine network latency and connection speeds. Various factors can influence RTT, such as: -The distance the signal has to travel to reach its destination and return to its starting point -The amount of traffic on the network -The time it takes for the server to respond to the network request

What Small and Midsize Businesses Need to Know About RTT (Round-trip Time)

SMBs should pay close attention to RTT because it can reveal the efficiency of a network. Networks with high latency might impact website performance, resulting in a poor user experience that jeopardizes sales and engagement.
