On 5 May, Newbridge Networks will extend its virtual private networks to branch offices and home workers, using asynchronous digital subscriber line (ADSL) technology.
The wide area networking supplier has been working with a north American telco on the technology. ADSL, which allows for high speed Net access over conventional telephone lines, is becoming popular among carriers looking for ways to pep up their copper wires to take advantage of multimedia without having to rewire their entire infrastructure.
Newbrige's development will enable corporates with virtual private networks based on public lines to extend the service to smaller branch offices or home workers.
"We will be plugging ADSL connectivity directly into our ATM switches," explained Alan Johnson, Newbridge's alternate service providers marketing director.
Full product details will be available on 5 May.
