VPN Device Migration Frequently Asked Questions


As part of the Federal Reserve Banks’ ongoing efforts to keep pace with evolving industry and customer needs, we will soon begin the Virtual Private Network (VPN) Device Migration. The migration effort will require all FedLine Advantage® and FedLine Command® customers to replace their current VPN devices with a more contemporary solution. These changes will improve resiliency and enable access to the FedNow℠ Service. We are sharing the following information with your organization's End User Authorization Contacts (EUACs) and senior leaders, so you know what to expect when this project begins in the coming month.

The setup for the new VPN device will be similar to the setup for the current device, and will require changes to your network/firewall settings. Your organization will continue to utilize the Connection Management Center (CMC) to move from the current Fortinet® FortiGate® 61E model to a Cisco® C1111 model. Additionally, device provisioning will move from Sprint® (now T-Mobile®) to a new vendor.

Available via FedLine® Home, the CMC is the Federal Reserve Banks’ web-based application that FedLine Advantage End User Authorization Contacts (EUACs) use to place VPN device orders. Please note that a credentialed Technical Contact at your organization can also assist with completing the migration order in the CMC; however, an EUAC must start the order and submit it.
