VPN Hardware for Secure Connections Over Satellite
Certain VPN solutions work very well over satellite, and others do not.
Some Cisco VPN clients have the most difficulty, with reduced throughput of up to 70% total capacity of the satellite link. The effects are especially bad if there are multiple VPN users using the satellite service at the same time. Hardware-to-hardware (site -to-site) VPNs work best, with the remote site becoming a permanent part of the corporate network. As users log onto the remote site router, they are joined to the corporate network in a hardware to hardware VPN tunnel rather than using VPN client software.
We only offer VPN hardware that has been tested and proven to work optimally with our iDirect satellite network.
