ViBE is a tunnel technology and needs a ViBE-enabled device at the end of each link. When talking about a “link” in regards to ViBE we mean a single WAN link, back-to-back WANs, or even “the Internet”.
ViBE can be deployed in either a point-to-point configuration or a service provider/enterprise configuration.
Typical Service Provider / Enterprise Configuration
For deployments with a high number of geographical sites ViBE can be installed in a Central Server configuration (usually in a Hosting Environment) with satellite sites each having a smaller ViBE-enabled device installed on the end of the connecting link. ViBE can be set up in N+1 configuration at the core of any service provider/enterprise.
