What is a good way to determine how much bandwidth your network needs before initial setup?
IT Pro learner 31 weeks ago
I am doing an initial setup on a network with 50 users. Most communications will remain within the LAN. VPN, Cloud, and Internet are all important, but workers duties mostly consist of editing files and printing. There will be 12 users that will need constant access to external networks via VPN.
What is a good method to figuring out how much bandwidth is needed for the company to run efficiently. I would like to have a good idea before asking the ISP? It would also be a good thing to know.
Any insights or suggestions?
