VPN Concentrator This lesson discusses the VPN concentrator. A VPN concentrator is a network appliance that provides a connection point for remote users. The end users initiate the VPN client and connects to the public Internet. The data flows through the encrypted tunnel to the concentrator and then the concentrator authenticates. The VPN concentrator provides encryption and prevents RAS exposure and is capable of standing alone or implementing into the edge router.
