OneDrive for business | Client network Bandwidth calculator

OneDrive for Business, Microsoft

How much internet bandwidth do I need to synchronize my documents with OneDrive for Business and Office 365?

To give you the right answer, that’s no so easy, there not only one factor:

  • working day, where all employees work.
  • number of documents, each user will generate each day.
  • number of existing documents, each user will edit each day.
  • average size of a document
  • Average desktop and mobile Sync clients

  • The best method for determining bandwidth requirements when deploying OneDrive for Business is to measure the bandwidth used during a small rollout. The best way to ensure that measurement will be useful is to include a group of people that are representative of your organization and measure from initial deployment/sync through at least a week of edits/additions/removals.
