Because PPO is offered on a Software-as-a-Service platform, it requires very little in terms of hardware and software in order to operate. The following paragraphs provide information on what the minimum requirements are to access and use PPO.
In order to access PPO, any standard web browser can be used including Internet Explorer, Google Chrome, Mozilla Firefox and Apple Safari. It is recommended that the latest or at least a fairly recent version of the browser be used for the best experience. It is further recommended that the client computer should have a screen resolution of at least 1024 x 768.
PPO’s bandwidth requirement is fairly modest and is comparable to normal internet browsing. However, due to the fact that there are very few images in PPO as well as the fact that we use compression, the bandwidth is typically even lower than normal web browsing.
For the purposes of network administrators who need to assess the impact of PPO usage on their internal bandwidth, we typically use a figure of 0.6MB per licensed user per day for inbound traffic (server to client). Outbound traffic is typically about 15% of that or 0.09MB per day.
For detailed information on PPO‘s bandwidth usage, see the following FAQ.
