You are the network administrator for an Internet Service Provider (ISP). Your company has been asked to provide bandwidth for a live event produced by one of your clients.
You have been asked to calculate the total data transfer required for the event. You have also been asked to verify that your Internet connection can support the maximum estimated concurrent listeners. You have a 45-megabits-per-second (Mbps) connection to the Internet (a T3 circuit).
• Time of the event: 6:00 P.M.-8:00 P.M.
• Encoding rate: 22 kilobits per second (Kbps)
• Average length of play: 60 minutes
• Total listeners: 1,500
• Concurrent listeners: 1,200
Calculation 1: Calculate the total data transfer for the live event.
Calculation 2: Calculate the required internet connection bandwidth.
