WAN Latency affect on logon traffic

    Hello all,

    I am working on an AD design for a company that does not have physically
    secure branch offices. The WAN links are reliable with decent latency (sub
    ~120ms max).
    Has anyone deployed a centralized AD design with no branch office DCs where
    there were up to 300 users remotely? Bandwidth of up to 10-15MB/s (maybe
    more if we really need it) would be available for these users but my concern
    is whether the WAN latency has a major impact on AD authentication traffic.

    Any feedback greatly appreciated.

    The number of user might not be important, but what those users need to do
    trough the WAN link, authentication, name resolution, internet, AD
    authentication traffic, Apps,etc. Is different to have 300 users that only
    need to authenticate against the existent DCs and have 300 users that
    besides authentication they also need to access to some application that you
    might have in main office (SQL,Exchange,etc).
    Monitor and get the max information about that then decide if you need a Wan
    Link upgrade or not.

    I hope that the information above helps you

    Good Luck
