Things to keep in mind for an optimum lab performance 

The amount of bandwidth required depends on whether you are a single user or a facility where multiple students will be accessing the labs.

Bandwidth requirements for one user

Each lab device requires 150 Kbps bandwidth per user The average user accesses three lab devices at the same time.

Therefore, one user requires a minimum 450 Kbps connection.

Bandwidth requirements for a class of 40 users

To ensure a facility can support your class and all your users in one location, use the following formula:

Bandwidth required = 150 Kbps X 3 lab devices per user X number of users

Example for a class of 40 users:

150 Kbps X 3 lab devices per user X 40 users = 18,000 Kbps (18 Mbps connection recommended)
