What is RMS VPN?

RMS VPN is a service designed for remote efficient, low-cost management of large-scale networks. As opposed to point-to-point VPN service, RMS VPN allows creating encrypted VPN tunnels for secure access of multiple endpoints within a matter of seconds. Let's illustrate with some examples.

Manufacturing facilities or plants use various PLCs and HMIs running on different protocols. The growing automation trends of such entities require enabling remote access due to increasing efficiency, reducing downtime, and optimizing costs. Using RMS VPN allows secure remote access to multiple applications simultaneously regardless of their protocol, checking and changing configurations, and completing other essential tasks.

RMS VPN may also be handy in the enterprise sector. Here is an example especially relevant to the current day. Imagine that company's employees must suddenly switch to a work-from-home scenario due to a pandemic. However, all company's systems and databases are available only on-site via LAN. Hence the possibilities to complete their job duties become very limited. So, here comes the RMS VPN service, enabling to add employees computers to a virtual network and allowing them to reach internal systems and applications from their homes.

Summary

The VPN Hubs section is located in the RMS VPN menu and it allow to easily set up and configure VPN connections on Teltonika Networks devices. And to reach the equipment which is plugged into Teltonika Networks devices.
