On such a connections 3-tier applications are very convenient.
In C/S application we can make fetchall after open for queries which
returns constant result for duration of the seans (just like this
makes TClientDataSet by default). But some client-side components (IBX
for examlpe) create heavy traffic from short packets on prepare which
even can be more than returned data. Middleware localizes this traffic
in LAN. But I must say much is dependent on application - I know
examples when C/S applications satisfactorily works on 56Kbytes line.
