Columbitech Wireless Suite consists of three software components: Columbitech Wireless VPN, client software installed on a PDA or laptop; Columbitech Gatekeeper, installed on a server in the DMZ for handling authentication and load balancing; and Columbitech Enterprise Server, installed on a server in the corporate network handling the VPN sessions. Columbitech Enterprise Server includes Columbitech Wireless VPN Server and Columbitech WAP Connector, and it terminates both the encrypted VPN tunnel and WTLS-based WAP communication.
