Value Added Networks

Value Added Networks (VANs) offer clients of their networks various communications protocol options such as secure FTP, HTTPS, VPN, and MQ over IP to name a few. Many VANs also offer in-network message translation services to convert data streams to conform with interface requirements of the many CBP Trade systems. VANs connecting to the CBP Trade systems enterprise infrastructure employ Cisco Internet or MPLS VPN with MQ Series Server to Server connectivity.
