Chapter 1: Planning and Configuring Network Settings for Microsoft Teams

When you're planning to introduce Microsoft Teams to your organization, it is important to ensure that your users can use it effectively. Network and bandwidth issues will negatively impact your users' experience with Microsoft Teams. Therefore, assessing your network's ability to run Teams smoothly will be critical to the success of your Teams rollout.

In this chapter, you will learn how to assess and determine your network requirements for a successful Microsoft Teams deployment within your organization. You will also learn how to calculate the required bandwidth you will need for Teams meetings and live events, how to use the Teams Network Planner tool in the Teams admin center, and how to configure the required network ports and protocols that are required by Microsoft Teams.

Additionally, you will learn how to determine WAN optimizer, proxy, and load balancer settings, configure Tenant Data Upload in the Microsoft Call Quality Dashboard (CQD), use reporting labels, and optimize media configuration using Quality of Service (QoS) port ranges and Differentiated Services code point (DCSP) markings.

In this chapter, we're going to cover the following main topics:

  • Calculating the network bandwidth capacity for Microsoft Teams voice, video, meetings, and live events
  • Analyzing network usage by using Network Planner
  • Specifying the requirements for outbound network ports and protocols for Microsoft Teams
  • Determining WAN optimizer, proxy, and load balancer recommendations for Microsoft Teams
  • Configuring Tenant Data Upload in Microsoft CQD
  • Configuring reporting labels for Microsoft Teams
  • Assessing network readiness by using the Microsoft 365 network connectivity test and dashboard
