Virtual community networks
Independent thesis Advanced level (degree of Master (Two Years)), 20 credits / 30 HE creditsStudent thesis
As the use of broadband Internet connections increases a need for new services arises. This report describes how the virtual community network (VCN) service can be implemented. This service allows users to communicate over the Internet as they would on a local area network. It is done in a way similar to virtual private networks and therefore the same network protocols have been used. An evaluation of the different VPN protocols was done and it showed that the layer 2 tunneling protocol was the most suitable. Further a performance test of the protocols and a prototype of a VCN system was done which showed that it is possible to run the VCN service with L2TP on a normal personal computer and still be able to get a throughput of more than 35Mb/s.
