We're deploying CRM to our branch offices and we're noticing some hiccups. We're not entirely sure of the cause but one factor to take into consideration is that we don't have a lot of bandwidth to some of the offices.
How sensitive is CRM 4 - especially the plug-in - to high latencey/low bandwidth connections?
Low bandwith is going to be an issue for you, have you considered moving the CRM to a hosted provider and then accessesing the solution through secure HTTPS and a standard broadband connection.
Just a thought
The bandwidth issue is not at our HQ (we got a 100 Mbit connection) but at our branch offices so there's no real use in moving to an external provider.
In our case "low" bandwidth is 16 Mbit/second down and 0.7 Mbit/second up but we're going to move to 10 Mbit/second down and 3 Mbit/second up.
That should be fine, most of our mobile customers are using 7.2 mobile broadband keys which in reality offer 3 meg 1 meg at best, and they all access CRM with out a performance issue
WIth plugins I look at the execution time there are some testing tools part of Visual Studio that will help you emulate response times.
Thanks for the feedeback, good to know that the bandwidth shouldn't be an issue.
