In summary, you must ensure that:
•The IP network between the main and remote site meets the bandwidth, latency,
jitter, and packet loss requirements for a multisite installation.
•The IP network between the main and remote site has quality of service in place
such that voice travels ahead of data.
•You have appropriate firewall considerations in place, including VPN if applicable.
