Bandwidth and Latency considerations
When receiving a Case, DS will determine if this is due to an issue specific to network round trip latency or available bandwidth between Customer’s location of access of the DS Offering and DS’s data center. If the round trip latency is above one hundred twenty (120) milliseconds, and/or if the available bandwidth is below two (2) MBytes/sec, DS reserves the right not to provide Support Services.
Such round trip latency / bandwidth measure shall be performed using 3DEXPERIENCE Paltform “Network Perfomance” utility accessible on the “Assistance / About 3DEXPERIENCE Platform / Support” menu.
