VPN site connectivity

Networking of company sites

Smooth and reliable cross-site communication is essential for efficient and economical operations, which makes this is a decisive factor for your success. The individual nature of the structures at each different enterprise demands a flexible solution that perfectly fits your needs and one which, above all, offers a secure network design—at multiple sites and offering high performance and protection against unauthorized access. VPN devices from LANCOM offer the versatility for the secure and reliable implementation of complex networks with large numbers of different sites, and also for smaller networks which integrate external employees.

Solution

Virtual private networks (VPN) are an economical solution for inter-connecting numerous sites, even if they are separated by great distances. The key factor: VPNs use the public Internet as a medium for communications over connections that are fully secured against access from the outside. A secure VPN connection allows companies to connect their branch offices or affiliates to the internal network. The access rights are controlled by virtual networks, which ensure that each and every network participant only has access to the corporate data that are relevant to them.
