Office 365 is designed to give users access to email, calendar, corporate documents and VOIP Services from anywhere, granted you have a reliable network connection and sufficient bandwidth.
If your Office 365 users are distributed across many locations, Office 365 will attempt to connect the end-user to the nearest point of presence in the Microsoft Global Network. VPN connectivity works great to access local resources, but the Microsoft Network may be a better option to access cloud services while not in the main office.
The Office 365 Network Onboarding Tool can test your network connectivity to Office 365 based on your location. Before moving to the cloud or if you’re experiencing connectivity issues while accessing cloud resource, we recommend the following articles to help improve your end use experience.
- Network planning and performance tuning for Office 365
- Office 365 URLs and IP address Ranges (for whitelisting the Office 365 ip range)
- Azure ExpressRoute for Office 365, for a direct connection to azure and Office 365
