Chapter 5. Network Planning > Dial-up Access

Dial-up Access

The low bandwidth requirements of Terminal Server make it well suited to providing remote users with access to applications and data within your environment. This can have great appeal to many organizations because the data itself never has to leave the internal network—only the visual representation is sent to the client.

Citrix's WinFrame product, the first multiuser-based version of Windows NT, was originally developed and marketed as a dial-up solution, allowing dial-up users to have LAN-like access to Windows applications such as Microsoft Mail. While the latest generation of this product contains many new features and enhancements, the basic advantages of accessing the product over a dial-up connection still exist. Many "fat" applications that exhibit extremely poor performance over a dial-up connection run at near-LAN speed when accessed through Terminal Server. Referring once again to Figure 5.1 or 5.2, notice the typical dial-up configuration in an environment with Terminal Server.
