Microsoft 365 network connectivity test

Microsoft 365 network connectivity tool

Overview

Microsoft has introduced the Microsoft 365 network connectivity tool. This tools allows M365 admins to measure the connectivity between any M365 device and the internet, and from there to Microsoft’s network. Insights from these measurements help admins discover and understand connectivity problems for individual office locations and how they can update the network architecture to improve connections to Microsoft 365. This can dramatically increase productivity and satisfaction for people in any M365 organization.

Microsoft also provides the M365 network health status tool. When Microsoft detects significant issues within Microsoft’s global network or with internet connectivity between MS customers and Microsoft’s network, they post that information via the M365 network health status tool. This information includes network issues that affect Microsoft 365. Microsoft recommends that admins use Service health in the Microsoft 365 admin center to understand the impact of any significant network issues in the M365 organization. Go to Service health.
