The Virtual Invisible Network or VIN, is an evolutionary step in virtual networking that can be used over any other type of established public or private network, including the Internet.

VIN creates a unique LAN type network over a WAN which means that organisations can enjoy heightened security, faster virtual network speeds and increased network reliability over small or long distances. In essence, the VIN can allow an organisation to enjoy all the benefits of a LAN network but over a wide area.

What exactly is the Virtual Invisible Network (VIN) and why is it so special?

The Virtual Invisible Network or VIN, is an evolutionary step in virtual networking that can be used over any other type of established public or private network, including the Internet.

It’s evolutionary because it introduces the ability to create an entirely new LAN fabric over WANs (or other larger networks). The LAN fabric is extremely adaptive and fluid, it can be stretched to any “shape” and can achieve the same efficiencies and benefits as a traditional localised LAN typically found in a home or office.

The word “virtual” in “virtual invisible networking” encompasses its two meanings:

    • (computing) not physically existing as such but made by software to appear to do so; and
    • almost or nearly as described, but not completely or according to strict definition.

The Company has compiled and answered a selection of queries which are available at the below link for your review:

Performance:

improved network performance thanks to the mesh topology of the virtual network fabric. These improvements can be largely attributed to the P2P capability at the network level.

Reliability:

VIN has been proven to hold connections better than any other VPN based solution, even if the underlying network fails or encounters intermittent problems. VIN is also automatically self-healing where connections are re-established when the underlying transport is restored.

Scalability:

VIN networks rapidly scale up or down with ease, simply by adding or removing Peer Nodes as required.

Security:

VIN employs the traditional security methods expected of any private network layered over a public one but is also far more secure by design. See our Security page for more information.

Flexibility:

VIN offers the same networking flexibility as traditional physical Ethernet networking and can be interconnected with any other type of IP-based network making for infinite possibilities.

LAN over WAN:

VIN is the only virtual network solution that provides the true LAN experience over a much greater geographical area. VIN uses any type of network to support the layered virtual network fabric which behaves just like a traditional LAN segment.

Rapid Network Charge and Discharge:

Discharging a network can be just as rapid as establishing one. Entire private layered networks can be established or dismantled in minutes.

Reduced CapEx and OpEx:

Significantly reduces the spend on specific networking hardware and infrastructure as well as benefiting from low subscription costs and reduction in ongoing operational costs.

SD-WAN Approach:

VIN is delivered in the style of SD-WAN for ease of network design and deployment. Networks are configured and controlled through a central orchestration platform. The data plane, however, is significantly improved over traditional VPN based SD-WAN models.
