The routing features of the APR-3100N series include VPN settings IPsec, Open VPN, PPTP and L2TP.
The company said that its new release supports native L2TP (Layer 2 Tunneling Protocol) settings on iOS and Android-based mobile devices for secure VPN connection to corporate networks, without installing any additional applications or clients.

It's worth noting that the next level of security standards will likely combine the robustness of L2TP within the security of IPSec.
However, vendors have combined PPTP with a similar protocol, Cisco Systems' Layer 2 forwarding protocol, to create L2TP, which supports multiple, simultaneous tunnels for a single client.
IPSec and L2TP protocols with wire-speed, hardware-based compression, DES/3DES encryption and public key acceleration deliver support for hundreds of site-to-site VPN tunnels at a price point more than 35% below competitive platforms.
