That is the subject of whole books.
You can start here. Big site.

Remove any spaces from the url.

There are some tutorials and such - start with WAN - Wide Area Network. Then look at VPN - Virtual PrivateNetwork.
They ahave products and stuff, too.

Great question!

I suspect you'll see a number of multi-part answers. No one will be able to give you a complete answer because we don't know your complete situation, but we can certainly help you get started on the path to success.

To do this,we need to begin at the beginning.

First, how many users (seats) do you have at the main office? Do you expect this number to be static, to grow slowly, or to grow rapidly. Does the local office have any kind of a network?

Second, tell us about the two regional offices. How many seats? Any in-place network? Expected growth?

Third, are all three locations within the beautiful Island-state of Singapore, or they regional within South Asia?

Fourth, what do you want to accomplish with these three offices? Simple e-mail? Shared applications and data? Internet access? Transaction processing? File transfers? Multimedia? Online conferencing? Share the vision and it will help specify what approaches might be most useful.

Fifth, whatelse will this network be doing? Web pages? FTP? Streaming media?

Please respond and we can start to build you a framework.

humbly submitted,
diabetic

One other important point. Do you have a budget? Is it reasonable, or are you expected to do this "cheap and dirty" as opposed to "professional and solid"?

We have done this for several small companies wanting to open "Satelite offices". You can easily performa this my using a "Virtual ISP" for your phone system as this would also connect all your offices with ONE "800" number..a "Virtual" Intranet" this would allow you to share files without having to administer the system on site. There are alos many off site accounting and "office" packages that would allow you to set up and "Off Site" IT structure with little IT investment.
