remote access required companies to lease expensive, dedicated data
lines or maintain modem banks, telephone lines, and pay
telecommunication usage charges to support dial-up users. The
prohibitive costs of dedicated data lines forced most small and medium
organizations to use slow, dial-up connections for remote access. Even
this option was expensive and complex to deploy.
With the advent of affordable broadband and standards-based VPN,
organizations can bypass these expensive and complex remote access
solutions. A VPN delivers remote access via ubiquitous Internet
connections. With today’s VPN technology and broadband connections,
companies of any size use the Internet to securely extend the reach of
their network resources. With the advent of ubiquitous Internet access
and VPN technology, remote access is handled through the same
connection used for Internet service.
