Private Links connects multiple sites together via a network based VPN. Each site can select from the available broadband technologies and optimum speed to suit its purpose. This product caters to the need to securely share data and network resources across many sites with unlimited data transfer across the whole network at a fixed cost per site.
Added benefits include the ability to apply Quality of Service (QoS) for prioritising data classes and also to centralise internet, firewall and content management resources.
Solutions such as remote terminal services (eg. Citrix), offsite data backup, security cameras and Voice over IP (VoIP) are examples of how businesses benefit from this service. Reducing the need for high cost VPN hardware and the lack of variable data costs are significant advantages. The following technologies are all available to construct a Private Links network.
|ADSL2+||Up to 24/1 Mbps||Australia wide|
|nbn™||From 12/1Mbps to 1000/400Mbps||Australia wide|
|Premium Ethernet||From 4Mbps to 10Gbps||Australia wide|
Establishment fees and hardware requirements vary with speed and technology. There is no data restriction imposed by OntheNet between sites. A minimum of two services is required. An internet connection for the network is available as an optional extra.
