Remote work and long-distance learning represent global trends with significant implications for accessibility, network reliability and user experience. Urban and rural communities as well depend on highly accessible networks to speed connectivity for public resources, from health care to social services. Both accessible and convenient, mobile VPN networks enable seamless switching between public and private networks to accelerate data delivery and boost security for services in every area of the economy.

In this article, we look at the key advantages of direct, fast and secure mobile VPN access to intranets for individual consumers and personnel across every vertical, including the medical industry, educational institutions, public services and the corporate sector. We also explore the advantages of these mobile VPN capabilities in terms of easy access, excellent user experiences and higher reliability, whether it’s improved online educational access, better public service efficiency or reducing the carbon footprint.

Mobile VPN success: Corporate sector and educational advances

Traditional networks exchange data back and forth across the Internet and face some problems. Moreover, remote users typically encounter latencies and bandwidth limitations that impede processing and cause delays and interruptions. Remote access using mobile VPN avoids the time-consuming detour through the Internet and eliminates those latencies and performance drawbacks.

The same high availability and increased bandwidth enabled by mobile VPN are critical in the corporate sector where remote work has become well established. Once mobile VPN is in place, remote end users can seamlessly access corporate intranets from anywhere, at any point in time. They enjoy increased reliability and excellent online experiences because they can avoid repeated logins, connection latencies and data risks. These users also have the freedom to use their own personal devices for improved, faster connections which improve productivity while protecting data exchanges.

The technology offers similar benefits for students and faculty in education. For example, unlike the expense related to opening individual VPN accounts and the associated vulnerabilities, students who use mobile VPN no longer require authorizations. Since the 5G dual-domain dedicated network is interconnected with the institution’s network, these users can depend on airtight security via the campus intranet to perform a multitude of tasks remotely. These include accessing online teaching applications, checking exam results, choosing classes and performing research. These sessions eliminate repeated logins allowing both students and teachers to seamlessly switch between the Internet and internal networks.

Making a difference in healthcare, public services, and sustainability

The advantages of mobile VPN are similar for those working in the medical industry. The technology enables a range of mobile medical devices to continuously track and gather data, from mobile workstations to ambulances and handheld terminals. Data is then transmitted in real time back to the medical facility for processing.

And in the public service sector, networks typically carry large amounts of diverse traffic. The wide coverage and reliability of mobile VPN are critical for maintaining high service levels. For example, the first 5G dual-domain dedicated public services network in the Pingshan District in Shenzhen, China fluidly handles the increasing amounts of daily data traffic. Powered by Huawei’s Mobile VPN solution, end users can seamlessly switch between the Internet and the dedicated public services network for greater convenience.

Finally, reducing the carbon footprint has become a top priority in every economic sector and industry. UPF technology represents a new 5G product and 5G campus network can replace existing campus networks and introduces high levels of network sharing to reduce resource consumption. For example, college campuses can contribute to carbon neutrality and reduce electricity consumption by using only one 5G network and improving the interconnection between campus and mobile networks.

Huawei: Capitalizing on Mobile VPN for global-wide access

Huawei has been instrumental in piloting and commercializing Mobile VPN in more than 500 enterprises and institutions worldwide. The company has introduced this cutting-edge 5G technology to not only benefit public service and medical administration, but to further extend educational opportunities, enhance corporate capabilities, and improve global sustainability.

The company’s innovative technologies are designed to meet the requirements of different regions around the world. For example, uneven 5G development means that some geographic regions still rely on 4G LTE or earlier wireless iterations. Huawei’s Mobile VPN solution can be deployed on 4G networks. Within its fully converged core network, Huawei can support diverting network packets traveling to the Ethernet with the 5G uplink classifier (ULCL) on 4G networks.

As a result, Huawei’s Mobile VPN solution can be applicable to 4G networks, ensuring consistency and meeting requirements in every global region, regardless of the wireless version currently in place. It’s an example of the consistency and innovation that power the success of a diverse cross-section of 5G deployments.
