I guess it will be good if you ask your VAR to log a SR to SOLIDWORKS, so that we can help you to work out some solutions.
Let me know the SR number after this is done.

Thank you with best regards

I've spoken to our VAR in the past about this issue but unfortunately they stated that the effects are expected due to the latency. We had one of their engineers arrive onsite and he stated the same.
Because of this, we would like to explore other possible options.
I will give them a call today and have a SR created so we can improve the EPDM experience for sites outside of our primary location.
You may consider Riverbed Steelhead network optimization
We currently have a WAN setup implemented through Aryaka services. How does Riverbed compare? Does Riverbed specialize in EPDM?
The AlwaysOn tech is pretty interesting, you would essentially host a read only database in Irvine that users there would read from, and any write operations would have to be passed to China. So you would see improvements when browsing the vault and pulling datacards, but you're templates would probably still be just as laggy. It's also not currently supported by SolidWorks, so not a great solution for a production environment. If you haven't taken a look at 2015 yet you should, things work a lot better in high latency especially inside SolidWorks using the add-in.
Thanks for the input. We actually just upgraded to 2015 SP1.1 a few months back but seen very little improvements. I am in contacts with our WAN provider to see if enhancements can be made.
I will attach a video tomorrow with our EPDM browsing and functionality experience. Maybe others can tell us if it is normal.
i just give you some points, you can consider, i have met some international partners such as BOSCH and SCHAEFFLER, they use the corperated PDM conected to servers in Germany in internet access via leased-line whose ISP is China Telecom with 100Mbps. Though they didn't use EPDM.
