VPN Solution Services

MetroServ' VPN Solution Services (VPNS) differs from other VPN offerings since it is a comprehensive, cross-practice approach to evaluating and deploying VPN solutions. VPNS provides our clients with strategic access to our top technical talent to help them evaluate the many confusing VPN solutions on the market today. MetroServ’ VPNS consultants have in-depth expertise in their particular fields as well as training in a unique methodology that enables them to work together to help determine the VPN deployment that best suits clients’ needs.

MetroServ' experiences have proven that a new kind of service methodology is critical if businesses truly want to benefit from their VPN investments. While creating exciting new business opportunities at reduced cost, VPNs are often complex, confusing, and difficult to implement. With VPNS—Virtual Private Network Solution Services—we offer our clients a scalable, structured approach to defining needs, designing solutions, and integrating the results into their existing environments, no matter what size or how intricate they may be.

Definition of VPN business requirements
Evaluation of competitive VPN technologies
Proof-of-concept with pilot implementation and customer training
Detailed VPN solution recommendations and developmental support

MetroServ’ VPNS clients can leverage our other service offerings, including:

  • Network infrastructure design to support e-business initiatives
  • Help desk engineering, asset management, and knowledge management
  • Ethical hacking and digital forensics
  • Network capacity planning, baselining, and modeling

Properly implemented, VPN technology offers many benefits to businesses, including new revenue opportunities and decreased costs due to rapidly deployable connectivity, more-efficient and secure operation, and integration of network resources. To achieve such benefits, however, depends upon overcoming numerous hurdles, including product interoperability, deployment delay, and evolving technological and business standards. By addressing such challenges, MetroServ’ VPNS fosters more dynamic business operation, increased security, and new revenue opportunities for its enterprise and provider clientele.
