Yes Possible.

Just plan the Disk space accordingly. for 5K i would suggest to use SQL instead of build in Embedded.

A single SEPM site should be sufficient for most environments with less than 25,000 machines

Yes you can able to manage it with single server. For remote site you can create the GUP Server which can update the defintion on remote clients locally.
Above link helpful to you.
Note - If the clients count is more than 5000 then use the SQL DB.

Thanks & Regard

Hi,

Embedded database support upto 5000 clients per SEPM

With the SQL database SEPM can support upto 80,000 clients per SEPM.

You have 70 remote branches then I would suggest to have Group update provider (GUP) at each location.

Basically if you configured GUP then clients will not cross the WAN link to take definitions update from Central management server.
