Identifying bandwidth requirement for certain no. of users
Posted on 2007-11-20
Is there a thumb rule to help us identify the minimum bandwidth needed to Internet connectivity (ATM / MPLS etc) for serving about 1000 users within my organistion?
Users would be able to browse the Internet, no downloads or chats, streaming videos etc with strict policy enforcement. Email is set at a max of 5 MB quota for attachments per user
Currently we are having 2Mbx2 leased lines load balanced and is falling way short with incoming/outgoing Mail queues going very high at peak times on our primary Mail gateway.
