This article outlines the hardware compatibility and minimum performance requirements of ROLLER applications.
Internet connectivity is critical to the performance of ROLLER applications. A reliable, high-speed connection will ensure you achieve optimal performance.
ROLLER recommends that you:
- Install a primary DSL or cable connection with a minimum download and upload speed greater than 20 MB per second
- Purchase a back-up wireless internet dongle or device for emergencies where your primary internet connection is disrupted
Wi-fi versus cabled connections
We recommend that network cabling is installed and all devices are connected to a local area network via network switches in order to connect them to the internet.
However if Wi-Fi is implemented to connect devices to the internet, a commercial-grade Wi-Fi system should be installed. Home routers and Wi-Fi access points are not suitable for business data volumes.
Testing internet performance
- Navigate to www.speedtest.net on the device you wish to test
- Click Go or Start to commence the test
- Compare the results to the above minimum download and upload speeds.
ROLLER apps are browser-based applications designed, built and tested to work on Google Chrome.
ROLLER strongly recommends using Google Chrome for best performance and reliability.
