Ifrastructure question time to change?
Posted on 2007-10-05
Just after a opinion here, if we are on the right track or should cut losses and move to a diffrent method..
we currentlyhave 25 offices around Britain, witha central HQ, each site has a 2mb point to internet connection on a surestream (dsl but with no contention "promised")
HQ has just been given 2x 10mb links which will be merged to give us a 20mb link.
we connect sites with border manager VPN (will be changing reguardless to ISA)
and we use citrix for the remote sites to make use of applications at HQ.
I have it in my head from some where that any dsl technology is bad for Citrix type traffic, and frame relay point to point would be better true?
MPLS going to vastly improve things?
We are at a point of change now or live with old choices for years..
apart from firewalls we are windows 2003 through out.
need the abilty to quickly role out a new connection as we buy new branches all the time, presently put a point to internet line in add a dc and a firewall and thats it.
