Need advice on multi site thin client network
Posted on 2007-04-08
I have a customer which has 10 sites. 1 head office with around 15 users and 9 satellite branch's each with no more than 7 users going up from 2. I'm putting together a proposal to link all the sites for both Voice and Data. So far as the data links go I had planned a leased circuit of some size to the head office, and then an MPLS style setup connecting the satellite offices to the head office, using DSL connections (BT/Rocom call it Public Private DSL).
I had planned to use Terminal Services for the remote sites. What I don't know is what size I'd need to spec the server. If I say each site has 5 users (average) + 20 (allowing for expansion) at head office I need a server that will cope with 65 terminal service clients. I also could do with knowing how much bandwidth (on average) a term services session takes. I guess the other option is Citrix, although that isn't something I know too much about.
Can any of you learned people offer me some advice as to specifying this system?
