If you have ever wondered how network connectivity to Office 365 works, today’s Office Mechanics show gives you an insider’s look at datacenter and network coverage in Office 365. Jeremy Chapman is joined by Paul Andrew to demonstrate tools for optimizing network performance by planning capacity when connecting users to Office 365, troubleshooting bandwidth and latency, plus tips for setting up your network for peak performance.
In this show we demonstrate several tools ranging from capacity planning in OneDrive for Business to network traces as we not only explain the physics behind the global connectivity of the Internet, but also what you can do as an admin to get the most from Office 365.
- OneDrive for Business Client Network Bandwidth Calculator
- Exchange Client Network Bandwidth Calculator
- Lync 2010 and 2013 Bandwidth Calculator
- Windows Sysinternals PsPing v2.01
- Microsoft Network Monitor 3.4
Check out the show to see how these admin tools along with tools included in Windows–like nslookup.exe–can help optimize connections with Office 365 services.
