We are delighted to offer managed Mikrotik VPN services for a subscription to our customers.

Why does anyone need Managed VPN services?

A number of small to medium size enterprises may have satellite offices, outlets, shops or individuals working away from the office. In order for their distributed resources to work together in a single data network; virtualisation of LAN (Local area network) through implementation of VPN (virtual private network) in their office has become standard procedure.

This is perfect for larger companies with an IT department running the infrastructure (including the VPN server) in the background. As we are all aware VPN servers requires management & maintenance.

  • VPN server setup.
  • VPN server updates.
  • Updates in technology & protocol upgrades.
  • Maintenance of users.
  • Creating new users & update of current user status.
  • Maintaining the security of VPN server.
  • Update of security protocols & forewalling of VPN server.
  • and more…..

Added to the above list they require tangible investment in VPN high availability server hardware, high quality Internet connectivity & UPS (Uninterruptible power supply).

Mikrotik GPEN concept

Innovative Access Network Solution for Internet Service Providers

GPEN (Gigabit Passive Ethernet Network) Concept


Cut costs, not speed – forget about the expensive GPON!
This is the cheapest way for any ISP to deliver high-speed internet to individual apartments.

The 100 meter limitation of Ethernet cable in data networking enabled the advent of GPON concept . This was specially exciting for large or tier 1 service providers with huge resources to deliver service to multi-dwelling subscribers in a relatively low cost manner using fiber.

However Mikrotik have found an innovative & extremely low cost method to use the available CAT 5/6 cabling found in many buildings to deliver fast Internet service to multi-dwelling subscribers at a fraction of the cost of GPON. This would enable smaller ISPs to deliver similar service as GPON with much smaller cost, immediate implementation & use the current infrastructure.

To fully understand how the GPEN concept works please visit below link for a comprehensive presentation.
