Fallback Of VPN & IPVPN network

By WY Yap ·
My company is considering replacing our leased line / Frame Relay WAN with IPVPN / VPN technology. Changes will be dramatic, as our main system is built for Terminal & leased line concept using Analogue leased lines & Frame Relay. Can someone comment on the plus & minus of VPN network technology (especially in Malaysia).

Fallback Of VPN & IPVPN network

The main benefits of an IP VPN are that the IP complexity is moved from the router on your site into the providers network. This makes your life much easier.

Another aspect is capacity planning. Bandwidth into a site has only local significance.As there is a full, any to any IP mesh, no site has to act as a intermediate node for traffic.

Also, depending on the provider, an IP VPN can offer different classes of service to guarentee latency and packet loss for Voice and Video streams.

VPN connections are just cheaper and there is the added benefit of greater potential coverage. The Internet reaches most places now, so a VPN connection can be obtained where it is not cost effect to put other network types.

Our business requirement includes many management/audit reports. Would this be a problem on a VPN connection? For dial-up VPN, would the log on time be a hindrance for situations where our customers walk in for enquiry or payment? Would data be recommended to be stored in a local box rather than in a centrally managed remote box?
