Bandwidth requirements for Exchange server 2007

Hi

I am looking at implementing a full new office network with about 100 users. I have been looking at pricing for leased lines and was wondering would a 2Mbps leased line be capable of handling the exchange server 2007 bandwidth requirments for 100 email accounts.

Thanks

It should be fine if this is standalone office and not a branch office. Users generally don't send as many external emails as internal. If this a Branch office you may want to bump it up a little (3-4 MB) to satsify internal email and application needs. Bandwidth is relative to all the other things you have going on your network as well. Do you foresee any bandwidth hungry apps?

If it is only 100 users and no mass mailing, even a high speed broadband connection is fine.

Is that 100 remote users, or 100 users in the office on the LAN and the leased line (T1 equivalent for our American cousins) just providing the email flow?

If it is the former, then you are pushing things, Cached mode will help.
If it is the latter, then it will be fine. Email is relatively low bandwidth use, and can be easily run over xDSL for 100 users sending their email in most cases.

I have a site where the leased line isn't used for email at all, email is on its own xDSL connection and the leased line is used for everything else!

Thanks very much, looking at it I will be fine, If I wanted to run Blackberry enterprise server also for 100 users would this still cover it?

Yes, it should be fine, as emails doesn't consume much bandwidth.
