Viprinet VPN Hubs

To set up a Viprinet network, a central concentrator as remote station, the Multichannel VPN Hub, is required in addition to the Multichannel VPN Routers.

There the data packets sent by the router through the VPN tunnel are correctly assembled and either sent to other locations or decrypted and forwarded to the public Internet.

Multichannel VPN Hub 2030

The Multichannel VPN Hub 2030 serves as a VPN concentrator for the VPN tunnels established by the Multichannel VPN Routers for smaller networks of up to 50 company sites. These bundles are then terminated in star topology with a Multichannel VPN Hub in a data center. There the data is decrypted and forwarded to its original destination.

The Multichannel VPN Hub 2030 offers not only high bundling performance but also a number of integrated additional features. These include the hub redundancy system and advanced SNMP monitoring. With its bonding capacity of up to 500 Mbps the Multichannel VPN Hub 2030 is well equipped for many networking scenarios.

Multichannel VPN Hub 5020

The Multichannel VPN Hub 5020 serves as a VPN concentrator for the VPN tunnels established by the Multichannel VPN Routers to transfer data over multiple bundled broadband lines.

With a bonding capacity of 5 Gbps, this high-performance device is the best choice for managing up to 250 different VPN sites.

The device also offers a number of integrated additional features such as the Hub Redundancy System and advanced SNMP monitoring. Therefore it is best suited for large network structures and ISPs. The optional hub tunnel segmentation allows termination of several different customers on the same VPN hub, while keeping their traffic completely separate.

Since the device has two redundant hot-plug power supplies, it can be operated in two separate circuits. This ensures maximum reliability in the data center.

Virtual VPN Hub

As an alternative to using a physical VPN Hub, Viprinet offers virtualized Multichannel VPN Hub instances. The Viprinet Virtual VPN Hub is a pure software application that works like a physical hardware VPN Hub and can be operated as an Amazon AWS cloud service, as a virtual machine on own server hardware, or on any CentOS-based server.

This makes the Virtual Hub the perfect solution for a wide range of use cases that are already based on a cloud solution. Downloading the Virtual VPN Hub is free; each actively used tunnel is charged with a monthly fee. Whatever you decide, we are happy to support you in planning your hub infrastructure. 

Viprinet Virtual VPN Hub for Amazon AWS

As an alternative to using physical VPN Hub hardware you may also host a Virtual VPN Hub on Amazon AWS.

In the past, we used to publish a dedicated AWS Virtual Hub image on the AWS Marketplace. However, due to certification requirements from Amazon, it always took longer for a new Viprinet firmware version to get published.

To speed up firmware updates and to make things more flexible, we are now longer publishing those images. Instead we have created a way to use any “Amazon Linux 2 AMI” which after creating the Instance can be converted into a Viprinet Virtual Hub. Afterwards, this Virtual Hub will then receive Firmware updates in the same interval as any physical Viprinet Hub would.
