Microsoft Teams provides users with chat, audio, video and content sharing experience in different network conditions. It includes variable codecs, where media can be negotiated in limited bandwidth environments. However, as a Teams admin, you will need to carefully plan your network bandwidth, because there are other Office 365 services and third-party apps that also need reliable network connection. Therefore, it is very important that Teams admins have tools that could help to estimate the bandwidth consumption according to specific business requirements and existing network infrastructure, and provide best experience to business users.
