Re: Internet connection

There is no document that can help you.

The more you spend, the faster service you get. So, just get what fits your budget.

In any case, since you are the end-user and have not networking knowledge, you will need to engage a certified cisco partner, or reputable consultant to choose, configure and maintain your network devices.

Re: Internet connection


It all depends on how many users you have at the branch, what type of applications they use and the type of hardware you already have in place.

Something that might work is an VPN from your branch office to your HeadOffice, all traffic from the branch office would go over the Internet but encrypted by the VPN.

You should also look at ISPs who could provide you with an MPLS VPN solution, where each of your sites would be connected using Internet connections (ADSL for example) with a VPN maintained by the ISP.
