What Is VPN?
VPN (Virtual Private Network), in short, is a private network established on a public network for encrypted communication. The VPN function encrypts packets and implements destination address translation and remote access. It is ideal for projects that require high data transmission security. To sum up, users can send and receive important data through the Internet yet at the same time keeping information private and confidential.
What Is Industrial VPN Router?
Industrial routers are an industrial version added to the common router, and industrial VPN routers are industrial routers with VPN functionality. First of all, the use of industrial VPN routers guarantees all securely encrypted data transmission and provides firewall protection for any business. With a rugged design, it is suitable for the harsh environment and ideal for multiple applications such as industrial automation, smart building, fleet management and environmental monitoring.
Types of Industrial VPN Router
Common VPN types of industrial VPN routers include PPTP, L2TP, IPSEC, and openVPN. The most commonly seen is the PPTP protocol. Usually, most industrial routers on the market have a PPTP security protocol, namely the point-to-point tunneling protocol, which enables users from remote areas securely access the intranet by dialing into an ISP to directly connect to the Internet or other networks.
L2TP is an industry-standard VPN network transmission protocol with a similar function to that of PPTP. The difference between PPTP and L2TP is that PPTP uses a single tunnel, while L2TP uses multiple tunnels; L2TP provides header compression and tunnel authentication, while PPTP does not.
The IPSEC, as a development direction for security networking in the long run, provides proactive protection and anti-attach through end-to-end security. In communication, it is only the sender and receiver that are the only computers that understand IPSEC protection. As we have known, IPSec’s security services require entering shared keys by manual to complete authentication and encryption, and the need to manually enter keys.
