The bandwidth requirements are listed below for the various media services Amazon Chime provides.

Amazon Chime Voice Connector and Amazon Chime Business Calling
  • call: ~90 kbps up and down (includes media payload and packet overhead)
Audio
  • 1-1 call: 54 kbps up and down
  • large call: no more than 32 kbps extra down for 50 callers
Video
  • 1-1 call: 650 kbps up and down
    • for HD mode: 1400 kbps up and down
  • 3-4 people: 450 kbps up and (N-1)*400 kbps down (lower because of smaller tile size)
  • 5-16 people: 184 kbps up and (N-1)*134 kbps down (lower because of smaller tile size)
  • up and down bandwidth will adapt for changing network conditions
  • attendees can lower downward bandwidth by pausing one or more video tiles
  • attendees choosing featured video will increase downward bandwidth as featured tile uses 650 kbps down
Screen
  • 1.2 mbps up (presenting) and down (viewing) for high quality
    • will adapt as low as 320 kbps for network conditions
  • for remote control: 800 kbps fixed
