ChromeOS device Quick Start

Network bandwidth

Your network’s bandwidth needs to be sufficient for the number of ChromeOS devices you’re introducing. We recommend a maximum of 30 devices per access point. Enterprise-grade access points can handle more.

Legacy software

If the majority of your applications use Microsoft Windows or Apple Mac software, consider moving to web-based applications to get the best experience using ChromeOS devices. If you still need to use legacy applications, ChromeOS devices support a variety of desktop virtualization solutions such as VMware and Citrix.

External hardware

ChromeOS devices work with many USB-connected peripherals, including keyboards, printers, and cameras. Generally, devices work with peripherals that don't require installing a specialized device driver in other operating systems. You should test any external devices to make sure they work correctly with your ChromeOS devices before deploying them for your entire organization.
