Benefits of PPP
Point To Point protocols are network protocols commonly known as hosts, nodes of computers. They act as a medium in which communication is passed between more than two network points or entities, and exist in network data layers, which support other protocols including IPv6 and IPv4.
In the past few years, connections linked multiple distance networks with a WAN connection. Nonetheless, these connections usually required specially gateway mechanisms and dedicated links that could possibly cost hundreds of dollars. But nowadays, businesses can link separate networks via the internet, which has been shown to help reduce cost by reducing the need for specialized software and hardware.
2. Better trouble shooting
Another advantage of layer networking is that all the layers are reliant on both the lower and higher layers to some level in respect to functionality. Therefore, one layer will troubleshoot and free itself from problems, and further trouble shooting can easily determine which layers are having problems.
3. Back up system
Point To Point protocol is designed like a set of boxes arranged like stairs. The layer on top used the software and protocols of the network layer below it, so that each layers has access to the resources. This way, when one layer has malfunctioned other layers continue with their operations since they draw resources from the layer below them.
Traditional WAN technologies relied only on sharing links for data communication between remote networks, but now internet networks have the capability to provide a substantial level of flexibility. For instance, users of WAN technologies often experience severe interruptions, which typically lead to loss of data. On the contrary, internet Protocol automatically reroute all the broken links before they are arrive at their intended destination.
Point To Point protocol or layered networking for that matter may require extra expenses as they need to be corrected regularly.
