Measuring the bandwidth of your internet access should be done before the initial setup of the Sessionboard. This will ensure that the necessary internet connection requirements are met and that no problems occur. The cannyboard device can then be put into operation directly via plug & play using the LAN cable provided, premised that you have activated the device in the network and it can automatically obtain a valid IP address.
While the Sessionboard can only be connected to the network via the integrated LAN cable, the participants with their own devices usually connect to the internet via a wireless WLAN connection. Therefore, make sure that the internet speed is sufficient over both channels.
