Hello Everyone,

In an effort to estimate bandwidth usage on an MPLS upgrade and rollout we have been tasked with determining what bandwidth is required without use of baseline measurements on live data.

Would anyone have a table or chart of applicaitons and their associated bandwidth requirements?

For example

      • SAP
      • Salesforce.com SAAS
      • desktop video conferencing
      • Email with attachments
      • etc

Thank you for your help,

Hello Matthew,

have you considered the use of netflow to perform traffic analysis on your network?

This would be the best thing to do.

Hope to help

yeah... you bet, i considered all the options with access to the network.

Here is the scoop - Network is on 200 locations (MPLS), and I need to estimate for future applications.

I  really really really wish for a chart that tells me BW per user per App...
