VPN' (Virtual Private Network) is most popular as a newer standard of securing WAN (Wide Area Network) client data networks over the older and more expensive alternative of Frame Relay or Private Line networks technologies. The most popular and secure form of VPN today is the MPLS (Multi-Protocol Label Switching) form of VPN whereby the core of the functionality resides within the Network Cloud, which means that the Carrier or Service Provider has the equipment and functionality located within their IP network and the client needs only to have a standard router at each location to enable use of the technology. Browse under our MPLS section for more information on this technology.
Custom VPN's can be implemented without utilizing a carrier or Service Provider MPLS cloud functionality and AB&T Telecom can facilitate these WAN networks for customers. We can provide the connectivity, equipment and installation for customer VPN networks. Call your AB&T Channel Sales Manager or customer support contact for more information on a custom VPN solution.
