Efficient, Economical Networking of Sites & Branches

Enterprises and institutions are discovering that universal networking of their sites is the key to faster, seamless communications—and thus to true competitive advantage. The demand for cost-effective, powerful and secure ways of providing multi-site connectivity is constantly increasing.

Solution

Virtual private networks (VPN) from LANCOM provide an economical alternative for inter-connecting multiple sites, regardless of distance. The key factor: VPNs use the low-cost public Internet as a medium for communications, protecting connections so that they are completely secure from unauthorized access

  • By means of the Internet, multiple sites are connected to form a single large entity—a Wide Area Network or WAN.
  • Employees at every site use this WAN for realtime access to vital information and resources.
  • Remote production facilities and logistics centers are seamlessly integrated into the ERP system.
  • Companies can network entire supply chains over VPN—including their suppliers and customers.
  • Supermarkets and retail stores are connected to their banks via VPN and communicate transactions directly to their headquarters.
  • Large-scale projects are coordinated worldwide via VPN.
  • Insurance company representatives in the field use VPN to connect to their company intranet, allowing them to access the very latest information.
