Is there an enterprise tool to measure/audit the bandwidth delivered to our company by our vendor?

In this Q&A, enterprise security expert Michael Gregg references where you can find enterprise tools to measure and audit the bandwidth actually delivered to your company by your vendor.

I want an enterprise tool that I can use to measure and audit the bandwidth actually delivered to our company by our vendor. The vendor generates reports to show bandwidth given to us versus usage but we want to audit and know:

  1. Are we getting what we paid for?
  2. Do we make do with what is available, increase or buy less?
