The connections in Vectera meeting rooms between participants are peer to peer connections. Vectera uses WebRTC to make this possible. This means that when more people enter the meeting room, every participants' internet connection needs to be stronger.
This technology is very good for one-on-one meetings and meetings in small groups, but relies on a decent internet connection and minimal latency for a smooth online meeting.
In general: the higher your internet speeds, the better quality of video and audio you will receive.
Required internet speed
Every stream requires 1 Mbps download and 1 Mbps upload. 1 Stream is for example sharing one camera or sharing one screen.
For a good one-on-one meeting with camera and microphone you would need at least 2Mbps download, 2Mbps upload and a max ping of 25. (Ping = delay).
For example: If you have a connection of 100Mbps download and 1Mbps upload, there's a chance you'll notice small interruptions in the connection.
How to test your internet speed?

We use https://www.speedtest.net/ to check how strong our internet connection is.
Internet speed refers to the speed which data and content travels from the World Wide Web to your device. It is usually measured in megabits per second (Mbps)
Download speed is the rate in which data is transferred from 'the internet' to your computer, while upload speed is the rate in which data is transferred from your computer to 'the internet'.
Ping shows the latency of the connection and should be as low as possible.
The internet connection in the example above is good. Online meetings with this internet speed should be fine and stable.
