Please, what are the options for connecting a branch office back to its head quarters? What sort of bandwidth could various technologies provide for 30miles distance away from its head quarters? What equipment must you specify to add to your shopping list when you get a leased line, using the internet as a backup transport?

Thanks. We'll let you know when a new response is added.

The basic idea behind connecting remote sites to each other is using a VPN, with each site having its own Internet line.  Being a 30 mile distance there’s not much of a bandwidth threat in terms of latency from locations.

There’s a lot of solutions for hardware such as Juniper and Cisco.

    Welcome to ITKE,peggyacqua.

    That is not something you will be able to design (let alone implement) with some help offered in a site like this one. A task like that requires a good bit of networking knowledge and experience.

    if this is a real project, my recommendation would be to hire a professional to do it. 

    If it is not real, but some kind of homework assignment, then my recommendation would be to review your course materials, try to do as much as you can by yourself, and then come here to ask specific questions on the parts that you are having more problems with, letting everyone know what you have done so far and the issues you are facing.
