How it Works?

 

 VBOX Components & how it works

 A  CLOUD service called a Virtual Switch Concentrator (VSC) is at the centre of the VBOX solution in that it creates a Virtual Layer 2 connection between preconfigured VBOX units. Most connections of this nature are Layer 3 and require significant configuration when they are set up and subsequently if they are moved. The VBOX solution is portable and flexible for your Global integration needs.

The following components make up the vBox Solution:-. 

                • Internet Connection
                • Dedicated Virtual Switch Concentrator (VSC)
                • Dedicated VBOX Unit(s)

Internet Connection

Accessing the Internet comes with 4 possibilities:-

            1. DHCP LAN
            2. DHCP WAN
            3. WAN 3G Broadband (using USB Dongle)*
            4. Smart Phone Hotspot** 

Virtual Switch Concentrator (VSC)

Each Subscription customer is allocated a secure dedicated VBOX VSC located at our secure Data Centre to which all VBox units are paired.

Typically 1 VBOX VSC is created for each Customer Project.

The VSC is a  managed service administered by VBOX Ltd on the customers behalf via our CLOUD Data Centre. Only preconfigured  VBOX units can communicate with each other. One to one and one to many connections can be configured.
