When considering allowing access to corproate systems over the internet a VPN is often leveraged to permit authenticated access to carefully selected services over the public internet. Our Popular SAS (Secure Access Service) accomplishes this very task, but sometimes you need to give a remote working a lower level connection to the corporate LAN and this is where OfficeLink has the perfect solution. Available only on-net OfficeLink provides direct access to the LAN from a fixed remote location over our highly secure double encrypted private WAN and then optionally also permits internet access routed from the remote client. 

That is to say the connection from the fixed remote client over our DSL/FTTC/ELM/EFM connections are securely routed to your corporate LAN with or without protocol filtering and this gives several advantages over VPN...

  • Since there is no authentication required (by default) and this is fixed link between two fixed endpoints, then there is no risk of compromise as there would be in a typical VPN scenario (the very reason that you'd never use VPN to connect directly to the LAN)
  • There is no additional encapsulation overhead which makes the connection faster and doesn't reduce the MTA any further. 
  • There can be no restriction on access so that the remote client is actually part of the LAN and participates in broadcasts etc which is important for services that rely on broadcast to work such as some Vod Services. 

OfficeLink is only suitable for customers who have (or will have) PMP connectivity to GEN and who have (or will have) GEN connectivity to the fixed remote client. Aggregated bandwidths of up to 1Gbit are available on this service.
