Working across the continents

Newbie here.

 

Background: our shop is Clearcase/UCM, and it's not working optimally
for us -> investigating alternatives. One question:

 

Situation: Our development teams (300 developers) are split 30% USA, 70%
India, over a not too fast network. I wouldn't call it slow, but it's
not super fast. (I've worked at 50% USA, 30% Singapore, 20% Gemany
situation, thus they were working 24 hours a day). So, my situation is
not unique.

 

If we have a single repository, say in the USA, then developers in other
continents will have to deal with our -not too fast, but decent-
network. Of course, one solution is to upgrade the networ$$$k.

 

If we have distributed repositories, then developers access a local
network (faster) and can also take advantage of the work done by other
teams.

 

I've gone thru the svn book and there is no talk about this topic.

 

Question is: what is SVN solution for teams working over long distance?

 

Thanks in advance
