  • RE: Looking for Advice on Lines Speeds to Host Terminal Services

    *New to Terminal Services!

    Currently we have a network setup consisting of 3 seperate sites. All connected through VPN with broadband line speeds. And a Win2003 Domain Controller for each subnet.

    I am looking to introduce Terminal Services in the new year to help with the various applications used throughout the offices and the laptops our sales team use.

    Can anybody tell me what line speeds would be required to host Terminal Services as due to the physical locations of all sites broadband (2 to 5MB Download) would be the only available resource to us. Leased lines would simply be unaffordable.

    The server would be intended to host applications for users for Office A (25Users), OfficeB(25Users), OfficeC(5Users).

    Any advice would be appreciated.

    Thanks

    David

    What type of application the users will use? How many copy of the applications will run in the same time? Do you plan to support audio? Graphics?

      Our planning number is 50 to 80kbps per user for active users running full screen with printer and drive mapping enabled.

          The standard client applications that would be required to run under terminal services would be as follows, the rest would be installed locally on each client machine:

          MS Office - (Max 55 Users)
          Sage Accounts - (Max 5 Users)
          Sage Micropay - (Max 5 Users)
          Access Database - (Max 25 users)
          ADC (Engineering Application for Calculations) - (Max 2 Users)
          Floorcad (Hollowcore Design Package - Autocad Addon) - (Max 7 Users)

          Yes. Mapped drives and Printers is a must also. Good graphics is required as Autocad would be running on a few client machines locally. Sound is not required at all.

          Thanks for the help on this. Just looking to see if this is an affordable option.

            The main issues for what I see now are:

            ADC (Engineering Application for Calculations) - (Max 2 Users)
            Floorcad (Hollowcore Design Package - Autocad Addon) - (Max 7 Users)

            The other applications usually require no more then ~20-25 KB per session.
            However, you will have a performance issue due the use of access database
            (The problem reside ןמ the database and not related to the TS).


            For the ADC + Floorad I recommended to consider Citrix 4.5 with advanced CAD support
            (Even a single server will do the trick).
            Please note, that even if you use a high internet line (For example: 50 KB per user), this type of applications
            have problem with latency.
