Capacity Planning Considerations

Below are some considerations to remember when planning your total network capacity requirements.
  • Estimate the number of users you have accessing the Boeing Secure Web Portal.
  • Identify your existing network capacity.
  • Determine the additional network bandwidth required to support usage to maintain an average network capacity of 320Kbps* per concurrent user plus overhead.
  • Size ISP access to support existing traffic plus expected Boeing Secure Web Portal traffic (must have minimal packet loss).
  • Size forward proxy/firewall to support existing traffic plus expected Boeing Secure Web Portal traffic (must have minimal packet loss).
  • Review Browser settings. Make adjustments to internal infrastructure, if necessary.
  • Tune forward proxy settings (TCP receive window size for WAN environment, fast retransmit-fast recovery operation).
  • After you have optimized your network configuration, gauge how many users the current network configuration can support. This maximum number of users can now be used as a measure for when you need to upgrade your network connection as new users are added.
* Network capacity recommendations are based on a typical Engineering Drawing. An Engineering Drawing is comprised of multiple images. The average image size is 200 Kilobytes. Business requirements may be met by a lower average network capacity.
