What is the bandwidth required for the maximum effectiveness of O-365? RRS feed

  • Question

  • What is the bandwidth required for the maximum effectiveness of O-365?

    I am assuming we are using Team with real time services such as audio, video,... and non real time services such as outlook and sharepoint, IM,...

    What is the ideal latency threshold for O365 to be effective?  both minimum and optimal?

  • Hi dsk,

    Since this forum focuses more on questions related to Office desktop applications, if you need further assistance on this problem, I'd recommend you post a new question to the following forums: Office 365 for Admins forum or Office 365 Networking. You may get more helpful replies there.

    The reason why we recommend posting appropriately is you will get the most qualified pool of respondents, and other partners who read the forums regularly can either share their knowledge or learn from your interaction with us. Thanks for your kind understanding.

    It's hard to say because these are many factors that affect network performance:

    Bandwidth and latency are the two most important measures of network performance:

    • Bandwidth is the rate of throughput measured in bits per second. Bigger is better. Bandwidth is like a water pipe. The larger the pipe, the more water that you can "put through" it.
    • Latency is the time it takes for content to get from a server or service to your device and is measured in milliseconds. Faster is better. Latency can be caused by a number of factors including low bandwidth, a sparse connection, or transmission time.

    Best thing you can do here is use the Teams Calculator that is the top service in terms of bandwidth consumption. I also recommend you to check the following information: Network planning and performance tuning for Office 365Office 365 Network Connectivity Principles and Calculating Bandwidth.

    Microsoft released a tool to help with the performance assessment of Office 365  which you can find here: Office 365 Network Onboarding tool. Now this tool is initially aimed at locating the closest Service Front Door for Office 365 to help with guidance on how traffic should flow.
