As we all know there is a huge difference between those cute little video clips we watch of par-core on the internet and the live web conferences we watch at our desks in the office, right? The video clips are streaming and are downloaded as smaller portions in advance to make up for any unforeseen network instabilities that may be inherent in the playback of said video. With office and web meetings and video conferences these videos are a consistently streaming packet of data in live or “real time”. This is being broadcast and transmitted directly through cables, satellites, or however your internet network connection is being handled so it is extremely important that your business makes sure to optimize its bandwidth to handle and plan for the appropriate amounts of bandwidth. For this exact example so there isn’t large amounts of lag and buffering going on during your live online conferences and glitches during your most important sales pitches to your overseas potential business partner. This is all managed real-time by the zoom platform, which gives the best data flow to every participant individually to make sure each person has the best experience. This combine to the codecs used and the way the data is streamed separately for each medium, means voice is prioritised to make sure all can hear and talk atr all times. With Zoom meetings conf, there is real time IT dashboarding for monitoring packet loss, jitter, latency and all user information in every type of meeting. This enables you to assess and fix issues previously not possible in real time. You can also go back to any historical meeting and review this information for diagnosis later. It is fantastic that the data packets even being lossed the solution will self-manage and and handle dramatic loss , yet to the participants they will not know.
What you should be looking for
If you are an averaged sized business and use online video conferencing software often then you should account for, on average, one hundred users sharing one internet, making about five to six calls and account for at least five percent concurrent bandwidth overhead utilization overall and another ten percent more bandwidth overhead if your business uses web meetings and conferencing significantly more often to generate more room for call signaling and buffering strength overall. You also need to consider each call made which will require at least 2Mbps up and down per call of bandwidth because each side will be receiving and sending data during the live feed of video and audio. These are the minimum requirements for optimizing your bandwidth for your business that will give you the best chance at good quality web based video conferencing software solutions.
