As we shared in yesterday's blog, Adoption and Change Management is critical to getting started with Teams, but have you thought about your network?
Preparing your network for Teams, is one of nearly 50 success criteria we have identified as requirements for an effective Teams implementation; and today, it is the second criteria we are examining in our closer look video series. If you don’t have a solid network in place, your Teams experience could be a bit bumpy.
How "ok" would you be with any of the following scenarios?
- Waiting 10 minutes to receive a chat from your co-worker
- Missing the most important part of your boss’ presentation
- Waiting and waiting... and waiting for a video to load
- Your prospect hearing only ‘mumble-jumble’ during your big sales pitch
We are guessing you wouldn't be ok with any of them! Yet, these are all examples of the network issues your end users could experience without proper set-up.
Having a reliable network in place will help you avoid application latency, skipped videos, lag time and the breaking up of voice, and other related issues.
The key to avoidance will be ensuring your network is optimized and enabled for Exchange Online, SharePoint, OneDrive and Office 365.
