Office 365 migration: How to avoid network latency & bandwidth issues

Avoid the common latency issues and learn about best practice deployment when migrating to Office 365 (or other cloud services).

Office 365 migration guide to avoid latency & bandwidth issues

What you'll learn:

  • Microsoft's recommendations
  • ExpressRoute for Office 365 - use cases
  • How to minimise latency
  • Routing – What’s the best practice?
  • Proxy architecture recommendations
  • Bandwidth planning & management

The reason?

As businesses migrate to Office 365 (and other large-scale apps), they are experiencing latency and bandwidth issues, an unexpected increase in MPLS costs, as well as a poor user experience.

Microsoft themselves recommend direct connection through local internet breakouts, bypassing Office 365 traffic through your proxies.

Microsoft guidance on Round Trip Times (RTTs)

The bottom line is that Microsoft broadly recommends round-trip latency of <275ms, <50ms for Exchange Online and <25ms for SharePoint Online.
