What is this and what for?
A speed test measures the speed of your Internet connection between the end device and server. During such a test, data is uploaded and downloaded to record the speed and latency. This allows you to assess the quality of your connection to the university network and helps to determine whether, for example, the download speed is sufficient for all services.
In the following you can perform such a speed test. If you want to do this because you have observed problems with your connection or a service, you can open a support ticket with the test result afterwards.
|Video streaming via ILIAS||2 Mbps|
|Uploading videos to ILIAS||1 Mbps|
|Videoconferencing with Zoom1)||1.5 Mbps||1.5 Mbps|
|Videoconferencing with Teams2)||2 Mbps||1 Mbps||< 50 ms|
|Live online examination||1 Mbps||1 Mbps|
1) For group video calling (gallery view and/
2) HD Group video calling (540p videos on 1080p screen)
Please keep in mind that the performance depends on many concurrent factors: used hardware, active VPN connection, other running processes or active devices in your network, etc.
The speed at which data is transferred from the server to your device. Generally, the download speed is higher than the upload speed because you usually receive more data than you send.
The speed at which your device can transfer data to the server. This is usually lower than the download speed.
The ping indicates how long it takes until a response is received after a packet has been sent.
The data to be sent or received is divided into many packets. However, these packets may take different amounts of time to arrive. The jitter indicates how large this variation in latency is.
