Network Test to support Real-Time Co-Authoring in Office


Hi, are there some network planning considerations for best performance of Real-Time Co-Authoring in Office suite?

We had a customer with really terrible and slow performance of coauthoring in Word on LAN connection. A lot of "keep server version" errors came out for users. But after switch to public internet connection or even local Wi-Fi everything working fine and fast.

We examine network and run classic connection and quality tests for other Office 365 services, but they seems be fine.

Hi OP,

Curious to know if implementing the recommended network planning guidelines reduced the number of "save a copy" messages and poor performance during co-authoring. I ask because I'm experiencing same on my environment while using the LAN.
