Network sizing for BI/Portal



We are in the process of estimating the Network bandwidth requirements for some additional users (who would be accessing our BI and EP systems via WAN connection).

I have gone through the document "Front-End Network Requirements for SAP Business Solutions" @ SMP -> Sizing Guidelines -> Solutions & Platform.

We feel that the Formula to Calculate Bandwidth Requirements (C = X * N * D * 0.25) given in the document is applicable for ERP systems. (which would provide kbps values).

However, for BI and EP, only 'Network load per report' / 'Avg. Kilo Bytes per Interaction Step' guidelines were given (which would provide only kb values). So how do we compute the Network bandwidth requirements for BI and EP (in kbps)?
