    • It depends on the content/packages/applications source files that you distribute to remote DP. I normally try to avoid creating remote DPs when it’s at the end of saturated WAN network.

  2. I have some sites with 10 Mbits and 40 Users or more, and the majority of sites they have 2 Mbits link to datacenter where my SCCM server is installed so, for you it is recommanded to link these sites with 2 Mbits to datacneter ?
