Consultant recommendations for Branch Office Integration
Posted on 2006-04-21
The regulars here are going to remember this scenario, but here it is again for everyone else: I have recently been tasked with networking and integrating a Branch Office connection to an office who's LAN I installed and currently manage. I have been evaluating the necessary hardware needs, IP configuration and core technologies necessary to create this link to the Branch Office. For those of you outhere who have gone through this type of migration before, any suggestions you may have to aid me would be greatly appreciated. Ultimately the goal is to allow the Branch Office computers to run a program on the Central Office's Server. One of my remaining questions is how I would go about networking a Branch Office to the Central Office using regular Broadband with Static Ip's assigned by the respective ISP's. I recognize the 256k transfer speed issue, but it may save the business thousands a year using their existing ISP instead of a T-1......So there you have it, any comments or suggestions, Let me know!
