Right-sizing a WAN link for RDP sessions

I need to order internet service to a branch office that will have PCs that will primarily use mstsc.exe to connect to PC's at headquarters.  I expect to have 10-15 remote desktop sessions maximum.  Cisco VPN software will be used to provide a secure connection.

Can someone comment on the amount of bandwidth needed to make this work well?

    Accepted Solution

    Each RDP connection use about 30kb of bandwidth.  You may also have a little overhead on the cisco VPN as well but not much.  I am assuming that the 15 users are going to be concurrent.
