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.
- Microsoft Teams
When this will happen
We expect to begin this rollout at the end of July (previously early June) and to be complete by the end of August (previously late June).
Updated July 01, 2021: Based on early testing we will be making additional changes prior to rolling out this change. We will communicate via Message center when we are ready to proceed. Thank you for your patience.
How this will affect your organization
The policy is not enabled by default and an admin will need to configure the policy via PowerShell to implement it.
What you need to do to prepare
To use bandwidth control for a network site, use the PowerShell cmdlet to configure the policy:
