Network requirements

The recommended bandwidth for optimal performance of Remote Assist is 1.5 MB/s. Though audio/video calls might be possible in environments with reduced bandwidth, you might experience HoloLens feature degradation, limiting the user experience. To test your company’s network bandwidth, follow these steps:

  1. Have a Teams user start a video call with another Teams user.

  2. Add a separate video call between a third and fourth user, and another for a fifth and sixth user.

  3. Continue adding video callers to stress-test your network bandwidth until you’re confident that multiple users can successfully connect on video calls at the same time.
