Bandwidth
Hello, What is the difference between a shared and a dedicated bandwidth? I received this information and I am trying to understand the meaning of it: PC's sharing: 100 PC Shared (Kbps) Dedicated (kbps) ------------------------------------------------------- Download | Uplink | Download | Uplink | ------------------------------------------------------- 1024 256 128 32 1024 384 128 48 1024 512 128 64 Uplink CIR Required: 30 Kbps Can I shared the 1024/256 to more than 1500 PC's. If yes how? How can I set up a network of more than 1000Pc's without affecting the bandwidth? This is for an african project. Thanks

Thanks. We'll let you know when a new response is added.

Is this a frame relay connection? If so, they may be talking about the Committed Information Rate and port speed. With frame relay you are promised a minimum bandwidth but if no-one else is using the pipe you can get more bandwidth.

Running 1000 PCs with this size of pipe is marginal but depends on the customer base. If they have minimal need it shouldn’t be too bad. I would limit individual bandwidth as explained in the last discussion.
