IBM has announced what it claims are the industry?s first products based on the new Layer 2 Tunnelling Protocol (L2TP) standard from the Internet Engineering Task Force. IBM said all models in the 2210 Nways family of multiprotocol routers will support L2TP this month.
L2TP is a standard for securely connecting remote users to a corporate network. It ?tunnels? a Point-to-Point Protocol (PPP) connection across a private or public network. This will, for instance, allow enterprises to outsource dial-up networking to Internet Service Providers.
L2TP was developed as a compromise between Microsoft?s Point-to-Point Tunneling Protocol (PPTP) and Cisco?s Layer 2 Forwarding (L2F) protocols.
