Cannot get adequate bandwidth to run application using T1
Posted on 2003-11-15
Here is my setup:
I have a full T1 line with a point-to-point connection between two offices which are about 4 miles apart, with a big river in between. I am using 1720 Cisco routers. Both sites A and B have their own DSL routers for Internet access.
I have replicated the two Win2003 Servers on A and B. However there is an application called Agent Office, for real estate, that has a Database which requires a lot of bandwidth. The users on B map network drives on A and access the database directly. The speed is very very slow, especially when all the 5 users are connected.
My initial rection was to instal a second T1 and piggy-back them to get 3MBs. Before I did that I ran a simulation test by forcing wireless cards to run at 3Mbs. The result was very dissappointing.
Is there anyone with a solution out there? f-course the company cannot afford a T3.
