Windows 10 Bandwidth Management DO Delivery Optimization with LEDBAT in LAN

I will explore Windows 10 Bandwidth Management DO Delivery Optimization with LEDBAT in LAN in this blog post. Let’s see what improvements and enhancements Microsoft has for bandwidth management. Delivery Optimization is the core technology in bandwidth management. All the screenshots are taken from Andy Rivas and Narkis Engler’s Ignite session demo.

Delivery Optimization is a feature designed to automatically adjust the network bandwidth for uploading and downloading updates, as well as for Microsoft Store apps and other Microsoft products. This feature helps optimise content delivery by using an intelligent and efficient approach to network utilization.

By dynamically adjusting the bandwidth, Delivery Optimization ensures that the network resources are utilized effectively, providing users with a smoother and more efficient experience when receiving updates and accessing Microsoft products.

Below are more details (Delivery Optimization with LEDBAT) about the session and recording in the section of this post.

Delivery Optimization with LEDBAT

Delivery Optimization is a fully cloud-managed solution, but you can have on-prem caching servers.

  • Delivery Optimization (DO) is a fully supported cloud service (out of preview for very long)
  • More granular configuration and throttling options are available with Microsoft Endpoint Managed (SCCM and Intune)
  • More matured & stabilized with many supported scenarios for several types of content.
  • I’m excited about Delivery Optimization with LEDBAT in LAN options (coming soon)

Delivery Optimization Best Practices Policies

  • Hubs & Spoke (Network Topology)
    • Download mode
      • DODowloadMode
    • Recommended Value:
      • 1 or 2
  • Sites have more than 30 Devices (Leverage peers for more content)
    • Minimum File Size to Cache
    • DOMinFileSizetoCache
      • 10 MB
  • Mobile Workforce Large Number of Laptops/Tablets (Increase the number of devices capable of uploading content)
    • Allow Uploads battery power
      • DOMinBatteryPercentageAllowedToUpload
        • 60%
  • Lab with Desktop/DC Powered Devices (Dedicated Devices that can upload more content for a longer period)
    • Content Expiration
      • DOMaxCacheAge
        • Seven days up to 30 days
  • Delay the use of HTTP (give opportunity for devices to find peers before falling back to cloud/CDN/On-prem Cache)
    • DODelayBackgroundDownloadFromHttp
      • 60 seconds to 30 minutes

Peer to Peer Challenge for Cloud CDN Delivery Optimization?

Challenges

  • Customers who have sites with very low bandwidth need a better overall bandwidth reduction guarantee (peer to peer is opportunistic)
  • Some customers use Peer Peer (All VPN WiFi networks)
  • EDU customers have sites with too few devices/lots of devices on battery
  • Some customers can’t push policies to devices on their network (ISPs, universities with public WiFi) but still want to reduce the bandwidth impact
