Consultation about deduplication: Deduplication between two sites.

This issue has been solved. See solution.
I have a question about how to implement deduplication option of BE between two sites.
I attached a diagram of how serious the implementation.
The headquartered site is Belgrano. The site called Pilar is a factory, which has a file server with 100GB of data to back up. WAN connectivity is via a VPN with a bandwidth of approximately 2MB.
The aim is that the data supported the Factory on Pilar site, can be sent to the folder in the parent deduple, implementing CASO option.
The problem is the first task of deduplication, which will cause connection problems sends 100GB for the WAN connection.
Question: Is it possible, using a portable NAS (eg Iomega), local deduplication make the site Pilar and then move the NAS to "copy" the deduplication folder Media Server of the parent? Thus, the NAS would return to the factory and would continue with the tasks of dedupe, and all changes are sent via WAN, which would not impact to be less than 100 MB. Is this possible? or am I crazy?
From already thank you and listen to all suggestions.
