[THIN] Re: NY-London TS

Hi,

How about a satellite link between drilling rigs in the middle of
nowhere and head office?

We're talking average latency (from geostationary satellites) of about
1.5 seconds.

There's enough bandwidth, but a real lag.

Is it useable? Yes.

Although it depends on users getting used to the lag (and they'd better
because it's all they've got), and the application. In this case its
slow typers and a database back end.

We support a customer in New Guinea across a satellite link. Once you
get used to the lag in typing response (and the speedscreen local echo
"may" work for you application, its okay.

Its going to depend on you users. If they're speed typers you've may
have problems, if they're getting info out of a database etc, it should
be quite acceptable.

Regards,

Rick

Thanks Andrew. 
I'm worrying whether the fact that *noone* seems to have doen this means
it's a Very Bad Idea Indeed. Not a single experience form anyone? Noone
connected to their servers in Florida while on holiday in London? Or the
other way round?

No exp, but heres some thoughts, due to a lack of other replies!

It might be a little sluggish when redrawing, but I wouldnt have thought
it would be too bad. Speedscreen should take up the slack when typing..
you dont mention what the programs are, so you'll have to probably suck
it and see! iirc you should still be pinging under a second for the
round trip - as long as both sides have reliable and fast net
connections of course :)

My London (UK) based client has  a need to access a couple of
applications from his new New York office. There will only be 3 staff in
the NY office - maybe rising to as much as 5!

I've never done TS work across the Atlantic. Can anyone who has give me
any comments about latency or other experience. My concern is that using
TS - otherwise a good plan - will be very slow.

Any thoughts?

Nick
