How much traffic will AD replication cause on my one forest/one domain network?

I am planning to install one forest and one domain for my head office and five branch offices. (I have Frame Relay connecting all sites, a T1 on the head office and a 128K Frication T1 on each branch.)

How much traffic will the replication cause? Will my 128K connection be enough to use it to access other servers (Citrix and Exchange) besides the traffic generated from the domain replication? Is this the best solution or is there another way to connect my branch users to Exchange and Citrix server in the head office?

The amount of traffic will depend on the level of use of your network and the rate of changes to the AD database. It is possible to deploy your configuration, but you may need to create sites to use to manage replication and define replication times and bandwidth throttles.
