"Virtual Private Network" – VPN – is a safe and low-cost data communication technology compared to a  dedicated network and easy to be implemented into existing public network infrastructures. VPN is usually used within companies which have data transmission support based on public networks, the users (either locally or remotely) having the impression that they are connected to a dedicated, independent private network with all the advantages offered by it.

By a VPN connection it can be provided:

  • Expansion of connectivity to large areas
  • Security improvement of unencrypted lines
  • Operational cost reduction compared to a traditional WAN network
  • Reduction of transmission time and transport cost of data for distant remote users
  • Opportunities of a global network
  • Compatibility with high speed networks (broadband)
