I am about to implement a VPN solution for my company and I do not want to make mistake on this. I want someone to advise me on whether to use the Software VPN solution or the Hardware type?

Also, I am trying to connect 6 remote location to the Head office via this VPN. these remote location will have a maximum of 5 users while the Head office have 65 users. What bandwidth size would be advisable.

I would recommend a hardware VPN for this and all professional network infrastructures that rely on VPNs. If cost is an issue, check out SonicWALL or WatchGuard - they both make products that I have used and they function well when configured properly. The main unit that would connect the other sites in a hub/spoke configuration would be the most powerful, purchase accordingly.

Since the provided network requirements, such as software and data transfering is vague, I'll recommend the standard. For the remote sites, I would recommend 1.5mbit/sec+ symmetrical bandwidth, this can be acquired through SDSL, Cable, Fiber and of course T1s.
