Actual requirements and product functionality may vary based on your system configuration and operating system.
Running Dynamics 365 on a computer that has less than the minimum recommended requirements may result in inadequate performance. For the best performance, we recommend running 64-bit versions of Microsoft Windows, Microsoft Office, and Dynamics 365 for Outlook.
Dynamics 365 is designed to work best over networks that have the following elements:
Bandwidth greater than 50 KBps (400 kbps)
Latency under 150 ms
These values are recommendations and don’t guarantee satisfactory performance. The recommended values are based on systems using out-of-the box forms that aren’t customized. If you significantly customize the out-of-box forms, we recommend that you test the form response to understand bandwidth needs.

Successful network installation of Dynamics 365 for Outlook requires a reliable and high-throughput network. Otherwise, installation might fail. The recommended minimum available bandwidth of the network connection is 300 Kbps.
