VPN Alternatives & Private Network Comparisons
Advanced WANs prefer modern private connections, not last century connections.
With so many carriers selling services under an abundance of names for so many years, determining the best private network option can be cumbersome. Private line services, which include Asynchronous Transfer Mode (ATM) and frame relay, are based on traditional phone services, and have been around since the 1980s.
As businesses became more reliant on data networks, VPNs (virtual private networks) became prevalent. VPNs, also referred to as IP VPN, VPN tunneling, and IP Sec tunnel, use a combination of dedicated connections and encryption protocols to create virtual P2P connections over the public Internet. A high level of knowledge in areas such as network security is required to deploy enterprise VPN service due to the complexity.
Metro Ethernet (metropolitan-area Ethernet) and Ethernet MAN refer to a small-scale network that is based on Ethernet standards. Unlike VPNs, P2P connections are established using switches rather than routers. Typically, phone and cable companies established Metro Ethernet solutions for smaller geographical areas, such as a city or county, or region.
MPLS (Multiprotocol Label Switching) is a router-based protocol that is used to efficiently transport data from one location to another. The advantage of MPLS verses other forms of private connections, is the use of data packet labeling. As each data packet travels from one hop to the next, it checks in and drops-off pertinent information, and then picks up new information (a new label) to replace the previously affixed information. As the packet moves from its point of origin to its final destination, it will receive multiple labels, one at time. Skyriver Magnitude™ Private Network is a premium MPLS enterprise private networking solution that increases bandwidth efficiency and performance.
