Bandwidth Upgrade

Start with why you think it's necessary and what happens if mgt doesn't
listen.  Bandwidth is like electricity in a sense.  Either you have what
you need or you go belly up until some utility company can give you more
juice.  If you notice a growth pattern and are trying to get in front of it
that's obviously important.  If you are approaching the point where a
single link in redundant pairs can't handle the full load during an outage,
that's important as well.  Knowing how to use power point helps too (avoid
animation).  Maybe I don't understand the question but this is usually a
no-brainer especially if there is an existing capacity management strategy.
