ISDN (Integrated Services Digital Network) technology was commonly used in the past for remote connectivity, but it has largely been replaced by newer technologies such as broadband internet and virtual private networks (VPNs).
ISDN modems and routers were popular in the 1990s and early 2000s because they provided a reliable and secure connection for remote access to a network. However, ISDN technology is now considered outdated and has been largely replaced by faster and more efficient broadband internet connections.
Today, VPNs are the most common way for remote workers to connect securely to a client’s network. VPNs use encryption to create a secure tunnel between the remote user’s device and the client’s network, allowing the remote user to access network resources as if they were connected locally.
While ISDN technology may still be used in some specific situations, such as in areas where broadband internet is not available, it is generally not considered the go-to equipment for remote connectivity in most cases. Instead, modern technologies like VPNs and cloud-based services are commonly used to provide secure and reliable remote access to networks and resources.
