Secure Broadband Access for Remote and Branch Offices

THE SITUATION
Enterprise customers are currently using expensive private line services and point-to-point links to interconnect corporate headquarters with their remote and branch office locations.

THE CHALLENGE

  • Enterprise customers want to streamline their networks with secure broadband connections over public data networks for access to remote locations.

  • Enterprise IT operators need tools to remotely control user access and to manage limited bandwidth.
  • An alternate access method is required in the event of network outages, to ensure uninterrupted service.
