What Are the Bandwidth Requirements with Nextiva Trunking?

What are the bandwidth requirements for Nextiva SIP trunking?


Upload requirement: 100kb per phone
Download requirement: 100kb per phone


If the necessary bandwidth requirements are not met, your phone calls may experience poor audio, broken audio or a delayed conversation.

If you are unsure what your current bandwidth speed is, go to http://voiptest.nextiva.com/ to test your system.

After obtaining this information, you will be able to create a picture of the bandwidth available through your Internet connection and make the determination whether there is enough bandwidth to support the desired number of simultaneous phone calls. If there is not enough speed or you are coming close to using all of your available bandwidth at any one time, you’ll want to work with your Internet Service Provider to increase network speeds.

If you intend to run 9 phones through Nextiva’s SIP Trunking service, for example, you will need at least 900kb for the upload speed and 900kb as the download speed for your network to operate all desired phones simultaneously. Please note, any other devices on the network will also utilize bandwidth, including computers and printers, etc.
