MPLS and VPN for transparency and security
BIT offers VPN services to connect separate connections, whether or not of the same type, to form one LAN as it were. This links your equipment, set-up on different locations, on a Layer 3 (IP). Your intranet, internet, application, storage and voice traffic is treated like local traffic. This is the best solution for applications that will not function when routed over the public internet. It also simplifies the firewall configuration. Together we will determine the most suitable type of VPN for you.
BIT links your access servers and/or colocation portals with an MPLS VPN. The MPLS VPN can exchange traffic with the internet in one place, allowing for a central firewall configuration. This internet access point can be executed as redundantly as required, separating the MPLS-network from the internet.
There is no need to configure VPN-tunnels on your equipment when you use MPLS L3VPN; only the central BIT-routers need to be configurated. The redundant setup of our routers makes sure that your MPLS VPN will function properly even if one of these routers fails. You can always add or remove connections from your MPLS VPN.
An IPSEC VPN-solution entails the authentication and encryption of the traffic in tunnel(s) between the individual destinations. The linking of different connections is done by equipment at the location of the connections. This often requires specific equipment, which BIT supplies and configures for you.
Due to an IPSEC VPN being setup by equipment on location and all traffic being encrypted, such a VPN can also be used for connections that have not been supplied by BIT.
