The amount of data a computer can process in a specific period of time. Today, this term is used to refer to a true or actual speed of data communication rather than a so-called "theoretical" rate. For instance, an ISP may provide an ISDN service whose theoretical data speed is 128Kbps but its throughput may be less when the line is busy. The term is also used in expressions including "throughput BOD" which is the ability to release one of the two B channels to accept an incoming call. In this case, the term refers to theoretical speeds such as 128Kbps and 64Kbps as in "the throughput drops from 128Kbps to 64Kbps to take a call". It can be found in many configuration screens for terminal adapters and dial-up routers.
