    Lightbulb Features to create a teamspeak server 3 for 100 people ... Help!

    Hello.
    Well I was wondering if anyone can tell me how many connections you need to create a teamspeak 3 server to 80 or 100 people ..
    Loans is currently paying one and we want to create for ourselves a home server to reduce costs ...
    We are a group and pay cod4 cod4 server then the cost is very high and we are currently doing a contract to buy a server for battlefield ...
    So if anyone can tell me what are the requirements for a server to 100 people, please reply ..
    Thanks in advance.

    Unless you have a business line or fiber optic net you most likely won't be able to support 100+ users. The upload speed will probably be your limiting factor.

    Deepens on the voice quality you choose.
    Let us do some math:

    Low quality: approx 3 kbyte/sec per user
    Mid quality: approx 6 kbyte/sec per user
    High quality: approx 10 kbyte/sec per user

    Lets say 100 users are in one channel, only one is speaking.
    The TS3 server has to send this to 99 other users.

    Low quality: aproxx 300 kbyte/sec upload
    Mid quality: aproxx 600 kbyte/sec upload
    High quality: aproxx 1000 kbyte/sec upload

    If two users speaking at the same time, the needed speed is also 100% higher. Now we see that low quality may be possible with a very good home connection. For the mid quality you already need one of the fastest home internet connection out there in the world. High quality should be impossible with a home connection hosting 100 users on a TS3 server. Don't forget, the upload speed is the problem in the most case.

    Because if not, then we could upload our connection to 2 mb upload.
    Anyway, thank you very much for the information continues .... We were tired of asking people how many connections will be required.

    Do you mean megabyte or megabit?
    1 megabit upload is too slow for 100 users, no matter which quality you choose.

    I have problems to understand you.

    How many you need is written in my first post in this thread. You also missed my question if you mean megabyte or megabit with "mb".

    Hi I see you have a few replies already. I am not sure if i misunderstood you but I think you mentioned getting (renting) a battlefield server. If this is the case you may be able to host it from there, however this is all dependant on how much access you have.

    If this is totally useless I do apologise.

    Another Idea might be to find someone with a lot of bandwidth going spare and try to get them to host it. There are some nice people out there, you might get lucky.

    I am currently hosting Teamspeak on my rented server in the UK with a 100 Mbps full duplex line, its like a dream come true
