Folks, can you give me your thoughts on this. Based on the attached diagram and application usage (people on remote sites will use primarily a client/server application named MyAPP). Based on real data captured on a similar site in production right now, I included the peak rate and data transferred over one week period. I am trying to make a decision on what type of router and circuit based on quantitative information.
Basically I am considering the peak rate as an important factor when determining the circuit size. Does that make sense to you?
My concern is this:
If I have the information that the peak rate for the aforementioned application is is 4.0Mbps for a circuit in a given remote site, if I haved the total of 5 sites in hte future, that by itself tells me that I need a bigger circuit than 9Mbps in the headquarter side?
Can you please see the diagram and help me answer the following:
Is the 3825 in the headquarter the right size of router if I plan to add four
More sites? (each new site is expected to introduce data usage rate).
If I add four more sites in the future, do I need to upgrade the circuit in the headquarter to a bigger circuit?
