Hi OSD organizers,

I have a question from one of the OpenStack Day organizers and hoping that this group can answer their question:

How much bandwidth per attendee are people budgeting for an OpenStack Day?

Thank you for your feedback.

Denise

I don’t think I understand the question – can you clarify?

I would expect attendees to participate in 100% of the event.

Thanks

I think the question is here is about wifi bandwidth…large conferences and events usually bring in a wifi outfitter and purchase temporary bandwidth packages to ensure smooth network access for attendees. Those packages are sometimes sold as “X Mbps per attendee * Y number of attendees == $$”.

I think this question was directed towards "networking bandwidth" for Wifi
setup purposes.

This was my question for the OpenStack Days - East event.

I just want to make sure we have enough bandwidth behind the Wifi since the OpenStack Summits do an excellent job of making sure we have plenty of bandwidth and there are few things in life worse than slow wifi.

My vendors is recommending 50/50 Mbps pipe for the event which we are expecting 600 people.

Does anyone know if there is a rule of thumb of how much badnwidth per user/attendee makes sense?

Thanks
Frank

Intuitively that sounds a bit light on to me - I can find out what we
usually provision for linux.conf.au which is of similar size if slightly
different audience if you like ?

Here's a helpful Bandwidth calculator:
http://www.psav.com/bandwidth_estimator/ There are a few others out
there

if you'd like to compare/contrast.

I'd say all of our attendees have high bandwidth requirements.

We can also ask our summit event management partner (fntech) to share their
best practices. I know that bandwidth is just one of many factors.

The other important factor for OS East (and just as applicable to OS Summit
and LCA) is that most attendees will have MULTIPLE devices. I'd expect 2
per person to be on and working (and a 3rd low bandwidth device for their
e-book reader.)

This doubling and tripling is what confuses most organizers.
