I want to test the latency before opening office branches between several sites, what is the best tool to do this (e.g from one country to another)

Use the 'ping -t' command in the command prompt

The quickest way to test latence is using ping. You need the IP of each remote office. After you have it, ping it and record the settings.

You can also save the ping test results in a log file so you have a baseline of the results you received. It can be opened and read at any time.

Click Start, Run, and type in CMD.
If the dos box that opens, type these commands with the proper IP's per remote office.

Example: Ping 100.100.100.100 > c:\Office1-Ping.txt
Example: Ping 100.100.100.200 > c:\Office2-Ping.txt

If the results are high or you have a communications problem with on office run a tracert

Tracert 100.100.100.100 > c:\Office1-Tracert.txt

Hope this helps!

If you have access to workstations/servers at either end, I like using iperf.
It tests effective bandwidth between two points. Pair this with some ping information and you have good pipe/latency information moving forward.

netpipe for latency and ping for packet loss.
