Ideate 2011 Migration Tips - Network Considerations

Are you on Subscription, ready to download 2011, or considering a move to the new release? Ideate's Technical Support team has put together the key things you need to know - answers to frequently asked questions about migrating to Autodesk 2011 products, including hardware recommendations and network considerations.

Network Considerations:
1. Workstation - each workstation should have a gigbit ethernet card. This can be checked by going to My Computer>Properties>Hardware>Device Manager.

2. Cables - should be Cat5e or Cat6 throughout. Check the cable from the computer to the wall. If the in-wall cables have not be installed or modified prior to January 2005 then there's a good chance that they will not meet this criteria.

3. Network Switch - the network switch should be a gigabit switch. You may need to research the model number online to determine whether it meets this criteria.
