Virtual Private Networks provide an option for private data transmission on public networks. Virtual Private Networks is normally used for connectivity between two private networks via a public network such as the Internet. What we mean by private network is a network that is not freely accessible to all. To implement a Virtual Private Networks, usually two or more private networks are connected through a coded tunnel, so that the exchange of data on the public network is protected from other users’ view. Depending on the method and objectives of implementation, Virtual Private Networks are either based on the data transmission platforms like local and long distance communications and the Internet, or on the applied technologies such as MPLS, VPLS, VLAN, L2TP and various types of IP tunnels, in layer 2 and 3 formats.
Using Virtual Private Networks makes it possible to connect the internal networks of two organizations, or different offices of a company scattered all around the city or country. It will be also possible to make telephone calls from internal lines of an organization through telephone centers’ connectivity.
Utilizing this service requires expert meetings to identify the needs, and preparation of an adequate technical plan based on the client’s terms and requirements.
