VPN Router

Definition - What does VPN Router mean?

A VPN router is a type of routing device that is designed specifically to enable network communications within a VPN environment.

It primarily enables connecting and communicating between multiple VPN end devices, usually present in separate locations.

Techopedia explains VPN Router

As with a standard router, a VPN router enables the core packet routing and network communication services within VPN. It provides the ability to share and provide connectivity of the VPN to different end devices.

Some VPN routers are portable and can be installed and configured anywhere that has an Internet connection. Users can connect to it using a wireless network or through wired LAN or serial interfaces. A VPN router utilizes one or more networking/tunneling protocols to create and manage communications within VPN tunnels.
