Virtual Private Network

What is the RUCC VPN solution?

The RUCC VPN solution provides a secure, nationwide ip-based network that enables organisations to connect multiple offices together.

Traditionally, VPNs have used the Internet as a bearer to transmit private data to each end-customer location. This approach requires complex and expensive encryption and tunnelling techniques (PPTP, IPSEC, GRE, etc) as well as software, hardware and consulting.

Using our VPN solution, your data never leaves your private network.

Provide private access to your head office
with controlled access to the Internet

Fixed Pricing
Data passed over the IP VPN is charged at a fixed monthly rate. CPE-based services employ a variable pricing structure, which makes it difficult for the enterprise to budget and forecast.

Capital Cost Saving
Network-based IP VPNs require less equipment, so an enterprise has simply lower costs. The network-based IP VPN bears this capital cost centrally.

Lower Priced Communications Services
In general the Private IP VPN is lower in cost than any traditional VPN. Although the service is lower-priced, overall quality is never compromised.

Operational Cost savings
A centralised system means simplified management performed on the network and therefore lower overhead costs. The reduction in equipment at the enterprise significantly reduces the costs associated with maintenance, network management and troubleshooting costs. Similarly, configuration costs are carried out more quickly and efficiently, further minimising costs.

Optimum Security
Transmitted data remains isolated on the private IP network so company information is not exposed to the public Internet. This is facilitated by both physical and logical separation.

Centralised Policy Control and Management
Rules and policies of the network are stored centrally unlike other legacy or CPE-based IP VPNs. For example, for an enterprise with 100 separate sites, any network software upgrades would have to be carried out at each one. With this network-based solution, upgrades are made more efficiently within the IP network without ever having to interfere with individual enterprise equipment.

Multi-Service Capability
The network has multi-service capability over the same physical link. For example this means data transmission and Internet access, can occur simultaneously along the one connection. Significant savings can be made on traditional line costs.

CPE-based IP VPNs are limited by the number of "tunnels" (secure connections between two points), they can support. Network-based IP VPNs offer pre-configured tunnels ready for scaling. The end result is reduced time to bring a site online, therefore contributing more quickly to overall productivity.

Flexible Integration
The network-based IP VPN offering in many cases can be easily integrated with traditional networks or even CPE-based IP VPNs. Connectivity via alternative access includes ATM and Ethernet.

Service Level Agreement Private IP VPNs are supported by measurable service level agreements. These include assured core network availability, throughput assurance and minimised latency.

The network-based IP VPN delivers on the promise of reliable, cost-effective communications for better performing business systems and ecommerce.
