The Network requirements of the New York site

The New York site has some basic network requirements that are required to make sure that the fourstorey building and its 430 users are capable of functioning and have access with the applications to do
their job. Also making sure the applications are accessible via the Toronto HQ site and internet.
With the applications needed there are factors we need to take into consideration for the network: the
amount of traffic, bandwidth and latency are among some.

IP Telephony system
The first application is the IP telephony system hosted in the HQ. In order to keep your conversations
clear and free of disruptions, we need a certain amount of bandwidth. As long as we have a good
upload/download stream, we should be able to use the application correctly. The more accurate results
using this application will come from using a fixed connection to the internet and not WIFI.
Here are guideline network requirements to use the IP Telephony system:
Full Quality Audio (G711 Codec)\- Uses 87 kbps for each concurrent phone call (NEB)
Compressed Audio (G729 Codec)\- Uses 33 kbps for each concurrent phone call (NEB)
So the calculation for a typical DSL connection would be:
DSL connection:600 kbps upload / 5000 kbps download
Gives us (Full Quality):600 kbps / 87 kbps = 6 concurrent calls
Gives us (Compressed Quality):600 kbps / 33 kbps = 18 concurrent calls

We use the upload bandwidth in the calculation, this will limiting factor for voice-over-IP.
As for the 430 users and the usage of 20% of concurrent users will 86 at the same time.
The required bandwidth for voice-over-IP is 16 Mb/s

Microsoft office 365 enterprise edition online


In the Microsoft online office 365 there are 3 online services that have certain network
requirements: Microsoft exchange online, Sharepoint online and Office Live meeting. Each of
the services has its own bandwidth requirements. With the many variables to calculate the
network traffic, we have put in the main considerations: number of clients in use at the same
time, type of task each client computer is performing, the capacity of the network connections
and network segments associated with each client computer.
Here we will give a guide for the required estimated bandwidth usage for the 3 online services
for Microsoft office 365 enterprise.
Exchange online we have an estimated list of usages: light, medium, heavy, very heavy mail
users. We wont assume too much or too little.
We will use heavy in this case.

If we apply 430 using the heavy column Office Outlook users we would calculate the average
network traffic during an 8 hour day.

Example: If your company has 430 heavy Office Outlook 2007 users, heres how to calculate
the average network traffic, measured in bytes per second. Network bytes/sec = (430 heavy
users (5,200 KB/user day)) (8 hr/day 3600 sec/hr) = 79.6 KB/secAssuming a daily peak
of twice the average usage, your network connection would need to support approximately
159.2 KB/sec.

Sharepoint online we have calculation for an average interaction transfer approximately 100kb.
The typical user generates 36 interactions per hour. About 10% of the company users will be
active at the same time.
Example: If your company has 430 SharePoint Online users, heres how to calculate the
average network traffic for each user, measured in bytes per second. Network bits per second =
(100,000 bytes/load 8 bits/byte 36 loads/hr) 3600 seconds/hr = 8000 bits per secondA
company with 430 users would have approximately 100 active users at any one time. Those 430
users would require approximately 430 x 8000 bits per second or 800 kilobits per second of
available network bandwidth. Assuming a daily peak of twice the average usage, your network
connection would need to provide approximately 1.6 megabits per second of network
bandwidth.

* In addition to the bandwidth requirements, Sharepoint online requires a network latency of no


greater than 250 milliseconds.

Office live meeting offers 2 different clients: office live meeting client(window-based) and
office live meeting Web access (web based). The bandwidth of these values are going to be
calculated in Kbps for one person.

The bandwidth requirements are cumulative for each function here, if you want to use voice,
video, and Office RoundTable, the minimum bandwidth would be 50 + 50 + 100 = 200 KBps
per user. The minimum bandwidth recommendation for the MWA client is 56 Kbps.
This amount will be 256 Kbps.

Salesforces :
You can then calculate bandwidth as follows:

Bandwidth = Avg. Page Size(in kilobits) * Number of Users / (Seconds between page views +
Page load time)
***Remember bandwidth is calculate in BITS not BYTES. If a compressed Salesforce page has
a size of 15 kilobytes, that's 120 kilobits of bandwidth.
As an example, let's say Page Size = 120kilobits Users = 430, Seconds between page views =
120 (2 minutes) and page load time = 2 seconds
120 * 430 / (120 + 2) = 422.95 kbps of bandwidth.

Of course, if all 10 people open a new page at the same time, it will be much slower. If only 1
person opens a new page while the other 9 are doing something else, it should be much faster.

SAP ERP network requirements


Network hardware requirements for SAP Hybris Cloud for Customer.
Requirements by number of users:

Small, trial: 1 mbps


Medium, 50 users: 2 mbps
Large, 100 users: 4 mbps
Extra large, 250 users: 10 mbps
XXL, 500 users: 20 mbps minimum

Minimum requirements:
Upstream: 1 mbps
Downstream: 1 mbps
Latency: 200ms or better

Video Conferencing with Skype for Business


Media traffic network usage
The media traffic bandwidth usage can be challenging to calculate because of the number of different
variables, such as codec usage, resolution, and activity levels. The bandwidth usage is a function of the
codec that is used and the activity of the stream, which can vary between scenarios. The following table
lists the audio codecs typically used in Skype for Business Server scenarios.

*There are other factoring but this is the basic requirements

SPSS
it is hard to give an accurate need but we can give a general approximation for this building and
users.
BANDWIDTH

Minimum bandwidth (between client PC and web server) of approximately 256 kbps for

'standard' users

For 'super-users' (those running more complex tasks), recommended bandwidth of approx

512kbps or more
NETWORK LATENCY

Relatively low network round-trip latency (for example less than 80ms 'round-trip' or so)

NOTE:

The above bandwidths are the required/recommended-minimum values per active user.

Therefore, if you have 20 remote 'standard' users who are actively simultaneously using the

system, then this will require a central ('hub') dedicated (Controller-only) network pipe of
approximately 5Mbps (or more) at your central 'server' location.
Again, performance is a subjective quantity - different customers will have different
needs/expectations. However, as a rough/approximate guideline, the author suggests:
Bandwidth for Citrix:

Absolute minimum 25 kbps per active user

Higher bandwidths will make certain tasks (especially printing and file import/export &

opening/saving tasks) much faster.


Latency for Citrix:

Ideal: less than 150ms - users should experience good Citrix performance

OK/poor: latency between 150ms and 300ms users will find the Citrix application usable,

but not particularly responsive.

Try to find ways of improving the network connection if possible.

In addition, you may find it useful to enable Citrix functionality (such as "SpeedScreen

Latency Reduction" - see link below) to improve the user's experience

Bad: Latency > 300 ms the end-users will find the Citrix application will perform badly.

It may be so poor that it is unusable, especially if the latency is above approx 450ms.

You must enable Citrix functionality (such as "SpeedScreen Latency Reduction") to try to

improve the user's experience


For a conclusion and an average of the amount of Bandwidth for your building in New York we
made a Grid to break it down with a certain percentage that is used on a average.
