Provides a private communications network for business customers.
A Virtual Private Network (VPN) lets a corporate customer set up what appears to be a private network, using public network resources — which means they can organize their private business communication, internally and externally, using the public network infrastructure.
All users (members of a VPN community), use the VPN application for each outgoing call. Service providers can offer flexible products, depending on the market and customer requirement, with a range of features available to composite user-specific profiles.
Features of the VPN application include:
- support for various charging options
- accessibility from any kind of public network infrastructure, on top of standard protocols — supporting a convergent network infrastructure
- integrated messaging and VoIP (not limited to legacy voice and data calls)
- available when roaming, and to remotely integrate external users
- abbreviated dialing, on-net calls, call forwarding, and mailbox service
Customer benefits include a private numbering plan, using short numbers, and reduced call charges to other "on-net", within-the-VPN destinations.
