Hello everyone,

Looking for some advice here.

I've been tasked with determining a baseline bandwidth requirement (per user) that will be used to recommend network line speed requirements for branch offices. Our enterprise utilizes primarily Citrix based virtual desktops delivered from our data center over VPN connections to remote sites.

I've found some information on Citrix's site that consists of a formula to determine bandwidth requirements for HDX but that only covers Citrix based traffic and doesn't take into account traffic originating from a workstation outside of Citrix.

Basically looking for something that will let us advise managers for example, if you plan to have have 10 users in branch office you will need a T1 line for that site based on X kbps per user of usage.

Anyone have any ideas? Does such a formula even exist? Am I overthinking it?

Any input is appreciated,
