Site connectivity

We can leverage internet access or dedicated wired or wireless links to connecting all your locations and employees increasing collaboration and productivity.

  • Connect your locations, employees and make collaboration easy.

  • Connect all your office locations.

Is your VPN secured?

A VPN (Virtual Private Network) connection or a dedicated point-to-point network link can be established using Internet access or dedicated wired or wireless links to connect all your locations and employees, thereby increasing profits and productivity. While this will provide secure transport between locations, if an unauthorized user gains local access, all corporate data in all locations could be compromised unless there is internal security. To address this situation our edge routers, apply firewall rules and device/user authentication within your private connections.

Site-to-Site VPN

A Virtual Private Network (VPN) service securely connects all your office locations. We offer a wide variety of VPN connectivity options to ensure a customized solution that meets your needs. We support point-to-point and point-to-multipoint deployments, with many connection speeds and different redundancy options to ensure reliability. All our site connectivity solutions are feature rich, fully managed and monitored. Point-to-point deployment is suitable for main office to branch or data centre locations if there is low data traffic. A point-to-multi-point solution leverages ElastaLink’s data centres as a hub in order to increase speed of communications between locations. ElastaLink uses many different access types to deliver site connectivity services. Independent of whether it’s a DSL Internet connection, or high-speed fibre connections for your larger sites, all your traffic is secure using encrypted tunnels, private tunnels or completely private subnets. All connections offer multiple VLANs for traffic separation, QoS and bandwidth prioritization to support even your most sensitive applications such as voice or multimedia.

LAN Extension

A VPN is typically deployed with each site having a unique private IP subnet (LAN). This simplifies traffic management and provides additional security in managing access on a site-by-site basis. However, sometimes it is necessary for a device or application to be installed at a remote location yet still be reachable within a local network (LAN). For example, an application that is using discovery protocol and is designed to work only in a LAN environment, or a controller or a meter that is reporting to a server with a local IP address. All these scenarios can be handled with our Edge routers, which is not the case with most other routers. In addition, we employ a LAN extension for disaster recovery solutions. In this scenario, when a local server is not accessible, a replicated copy at a different location can be made available and there is no need for any network changes. The server change will be fully transparent to local users and applications.

Teleworkers VPN

We offer secure connectivity options for your teleworkers. Leveraging Internet connections, we will establish secure access to your corporate network using encrypted L2TP, IPsec or OpenVPN tunnels. This type of connectivity is suitable for access via laptop, tablet or smartphone. Users can connect from anywhere: while traveling, visiting a client or simply working from a home office. For increased security and centralized employee management, a Local Active Directory looks after user authentication and our Edge router acts as a VPN server, managed remotely by ElastaLink.

Close Proximity Sites

Many businesses will use two or more neighboring buildings. We can establish cost effective, high speed connectivity between these buildings using fibre connections or point-to-point fixed wireless connectivity if fibre does not exist. In such deployments, Internet access can be centralized to one location and shared between the buildings for a cost-effective solution that delivers high bandwidth.
