Hermes VPN Access options

Hermes VPN Access options


The Hermes VPN can be accessed in a number of ways. The current standard option is a single Customer Premises Equipment (CPE) setup, with one 2 Mbps Ethernet link to the Hermes network, and one IPsec tunnel backup link over the public Internet. This setup provides a good level of redundancy and automatic failover to the IPsec link.

Depending on how critical the access is for the member, alternative setups with a higher level of redundancy can be offered, including double CPEs, locating the CPEs in different locations, and setting up a third link on one of the CPEs. In any case, Hit Rail provides and manages the local CPE.

Partners looking for a low cost entry-level solution can have a single IPsec tunnel link over their own access to the public Internet, via the Hermes Internet gateway in Brussels.

Other access technologies that can be used for accessing the Hermes network can be dedicated leased lines, xDSL links, Ethernet, etc. depending on the options available at the local level.

Hit Rail delivers the full solution including the cabling, configuration and the on-going management and monitoring of the CPEs.
