The U.S. space agency NASA uses a network of high powered communications antennae and transmitters around the world to track and exchange data with dozens of man-made probes and satellites travelling through space. Known as the Deep Space Network, the infrastructure is responsible for managing and monitoring the general health and safety of spacecraft currently engaged in valuable scientific research projects. Perhaps less widely known is the fact that Virtual Private Networks (VPNs) form a vital component – providing secure and reliable communications for machine-to-machine (M2M) and telemetry data passing across the network.
