Netlinkz (ASX:NET) is the creator of the Virtual Invisible Network, a globally patented, award winning network technology that allows organisations to quickly connect sites, devices and staff over the internet through a unique network solution that is generally invisible.
The Virtual Invisible Network or VIN, is an evolutionary step in virtual networking that can be used over any other type of established public or private network, including the Internet.
It’s evolutionary because it introduces the ability to create a new, fast and secure Local Area Network (LAN) fabric over a Wide Area Network (WAN). The LAN fabric is extremely adaptive and fluid and can be stretched to any ‘shape’ while achieving the same efficiencies and benefits as a traditional LAN typically found in a home or office environment.
The patented technology can do this as it creates a unique ‘mesh network’, typically used by military organisations or Fortune 500 companies, that connects devices to each other without information needing to pass through any centralised point. The centralised point of a network (such as a server) is often what makes virtual networks ‘visible’ and potentially ‘accessible’ to intruders. With no centralised point in the Virtual Invisible Network, and all participating behind firewalls, it is difficult for intruders to hack a network that they can’t see.
Unlike traditional networks that can fail for many simple reasons such as a server going offline, the only way to shut down a mesh network is to shut down every node or device in the network. This unique architecture (seen in the picture on the right) and ability to create an efficient LAN experience over a WAN through proprietary software, means the Virtual Invisible Network is extremely reliable, fast and secure.
The Virtual Invisible Network allows organisations of all shapes and sizes to have access to cutting edge network technology that has traditionally only been in the domain of extremely large organisations.
