[mapguide-users] Band Width Recommendation for Mapguide Enterprise

Hello Brad,

It depends on the data you are serving.  For example, 50 to 100 kbytes/sec per concurrent user should be sufficient to handle vector maps similar to Sheboygan.  You may need more bandwidth for maps displaying raster data.  Using PNG8 and JPG will improve bandwidth usage.  PNG8 vector overlays with a base map tiled JPG for raster imagery is likely the most "bandwidth miserly" setup. 

50 kbytes/sec * 8 bits/byte * 15 users = 6 Mbits/sec

A burstable connection with per gigabyte billing may be more cost effective if it is offered by your ISP.

Good Day!  Can anybody tell me what band width for internet access is needed
for Mapguide Enterprise? I am trying to decide how big of a line to order
from  my internet service provider.   I would like to be able to serve about
15 concurrent users, maximum.   The users would be mostly just browsing maps
and making simple queries.
