MC258623: Microsoft Teams: Roaming bandwidth control

Roaming bandwidth control is a new capability that allows admins to set dynamic bandwidth policies which are based upon the geographic location of users’ Teams clients. This allows admins to set more limited bandwidth controls for when users travel to remote or bandwidth constrained locations, and then relax limitations when they travel to a location with higher bandwidth capacity. Initially two settings from the Teams Meeting Policy will be included – AllowIPVideo, andMediaBitRateKb. This message is associated with Microsoft 365 Roadmap ID 81350.
