Basic guidelines - First things first

We recommend you review the article below individually for all the participants who are attending the labs remotely.

Things to keep in mind for an optimum lab performance

Depending on whether you are a single user or a facility where multiple students are going to be accessing the labs, the below guidelines will help.

Single-user bandwidth requirements

To ensure a facility can support your class and all your users in one location, please calculate with the formula below:

  • 150 Kbps per user per lab device
  • Users tend to average having 3 lab devices opened at the same time. 

For example, a single user will require a min.  = 450 kbps connection to support 3 tabs in the session.

Bandwidth requirements or calculations for a class of 40 users


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 (or 18 Mbps connection recommended)

If there are further questions/concerns, you can raise a support ticket.
