Big Network is a game changer for Remote Access and Out-of-Band connectivity.
In today's digital-first era, we have all become internet warriors, remotely accessing diverse applications and services, be it from the comfort of our homes, a bustling office, or even while journeying on the open road.
The growing adoption of cloud technology has fueled this shift, making remote access nearly universal. But, "nearly universal" highlights a crucial point: while numerous applications now originate from the cloud, we still have an array of resources at our home and office that necessitate secure and dependable remote access. Whether it's network-attached storage, security systems, home automation equipment, or an extensive range of devices that streamline our everyday lives, Big Network ensures that your remote access is simple, secure, and reliable.
So why wait any longer? Experience a future where seamless connectivity isn't just a dream, but your everyday reality. Empower yourself with Big Network's Remote Access solution. Test it out today and enjoy the convenience of secure and reliable access to your devices and network, no matter where you are.
Configuring, managing, and maintaining remote access can be an uphill task, particularly for residential or small business internet services that aren't designed for hosting services like VPN servers. Here's a closer look at the hurdles you might face:
Residential and small business internet connections frequently utilize dynamic IP addressing pools for WAN IPs, making it challenging to host services like VPN servers by IP address. Traditional workarounds, like Dynamic DNS, involve relying on a third-party DNS provider, which may not be ideal.
Some carriers, especially those offering mobile LTE and satellite-based services, use CGNATs to scale the availability of IPv4 address space during the transition to IPv6. When a carrier network uses CGNAT, subscribers don't get a publicly routable WAN IP address, effectively rendering it impossible to connect back home to any service.
Given a single WAN IP address, residential and small business networks often employ NAT to provide multiple IP addresses on the local LAN. This requires complex port forwarding rules to host a VPN service. Worse, misconfigured port forwarding can leave your home or office vulnerable to cyber-attacks.
Different VPN systems often have issues with remote client compatibility. For instance, a VPN system working flawlessly with your Windows laptop might not be compatible with your mobile phone.
Big Network’s Remote Access solution overcomes these challenges, making the process of setting up Remote Access as straightforward as possible. With no need for Dynamic DNS or Port Forwarding, automatic NAT traversal, and universal client support, your path to seamless connectivity becomes a breeze.
In just three simple steps, you can have an easy way to remotely access a network as if you are physically there.
As businesses increasingly rely on applications and infrastructure, network outages have an exponential impact. Though inevitable, failures can be minimized with out-of-band (OOB) connectivity to access devices when the primary network is down. OOB networks enable remote management and faster recovery.
OOB networks provide an alternate pathway using separate, dedicated channels for management functions. Careful planning is needed for resilient OOB deployments leveraging solutions like software-defined networking. Modern OOB requires robust security and cloud-based control.
Well-designed OOB minimizes outage duration and impact. Lack of resilient OOB hampers recovery, while modern OOB platforms make resilient networks affordable. OOB adoption enables enterprises to meet demanding resiliency goals and shift from reactive firefighting to confidence in minimizing disruptions. OOB access even when the primary network fails marks a mature, resilient IT organization.
