VPN (virtual private network) Installation

VPNBasically, a VPN is a private network that uses a public network (usually the Internet) to connect remote sites or users together. Instead of using a dedicated, real-world connection such as leased line, a VPN uses "virtual" connections routed  through the Internet from the company's private network to the remote site or employee.

- A well-designed VPN can greatly benefit a company. For example, it can:

- Extend geographic connectivity

- Improve security

- Reduce operational costs versus traditional WAN

- Reduce transit time and transportation costs for remote users

- Improve productivity

- Simplify network topology

- Provide global networking opportunities

- Provide telecommuter support

- Provide broadband networking compatibility

- Provide faster ROI (return on investment) than traditional WAN
