Concur - what I meant is, 'can support when fully optimized'.


Tweaking apps generally turns out to be heavy-duty stuff with lots of
release control and testing. Also, the applications programmers
generally have a poor understanding of network issues. If you can
separate the applications stuff from the data transfer stuff, and tackle
the network issues first, then you will have an easier time of it.

Concur - app-tweaking should be the penultimate approach (and then, maybe, look at boxes, if there's an issue which can't be resolved the other ways; but my guess is that doing the BCPs should yield good results).
