Remote office


(system) #1
I have great success running pcAnywhere on DSL internet connections. But since you probably can't get DSL in Mexico, how about using a wireless satellite-type Internet connection? I think Sprint has one now.

Nancy,

I've provisioned a Frame Relay circuit from Michigan to Mexico... Your best
bet is to go through a carrier that provides end to end service on the
circuit (say no thankyou to anyone that tries to sell you on 1/2 a domestic
PVC and 1/2 a Int'l PVC... if there's a problem they'll just point fingers
at the other 1/2 of the circuit). Anyway AT&T and Sprint provide End to End
circuits and eliminate your need to get involved with TelMex. Also consider
Voice over IP on the same circuit depending on your needs. I've spec'd a
256K Frame Relay circuit with 3 8K voice channels the rest is divided up
between Citrix Metaframe/Vantage and FTP.
Frame is really the only option! ISDN is laughable and DS1 circuits start
around $11,000 per month with an average installation flat fee of $15,000
(US dollars).
If the monthly charges are still to painful then consider running circuits
from each point to a border town such as Laredo and setup your own wireless
to connect the PVC's i.e Cisco Aironet (25km range).

Good Luck!
Lee

Depending on the number of users, I would strongly
consider using a Terminal Server/Citrix setup. The users
would get decent performance, while not requiring huge
amounts of bandwidth. We use this setup to handle 20
users with PCs that weren't up to handling the requirements
for Vantage 3. We have 3 sites connected by T1s.
