Ensure that your network connection is fast enough to run Enterprise and then perform the following procedure on each computer on which the software will be installed:
- Choose a data file with large space for testing.
- The size of your test file should be in megabytes (MB).
- Note the time (in seconds) once you copy your test file from a network location to the computer.
- Perform the following calculation to determine the network bandwidth:
- File size (in MB) × 8 ÷ copy time
- For example 150 MB × 8 ÷ 25 seconds = 48 MB per second (Mbps)
- If your bandwidth has a network speed of 40 Mbps or more, your connection is configured for optimum performance and if it does not hits 40Mbps, your connection will be too slow to run Enterprise.
