Ethernet services in a managed network environment
Verizon Business has expanded its Managed Services portfolio with the addition of Global Managed Ethernet, that enables organisations to place Ethernet services in a managed network environment containing just those services, or in combination with other network services.
The company said that now enterprises, medium-sized businesses and government agencies can utilise new offerings, which also consist Ethernet Private Line Service, Ethernet Virtual Private Line Service and Virtual Private LAN Service.
The new managed services also support an array of applications including VoIP, storage and business continuity, large file transfers, distance learning, content delivery and unified communications.
Verizon Business vice president of networking and communications solutions Anthony Recine said for the first time, their customers can combine the power of MPLS and Ethernet in a fully managed end-end-to-end global networking offering.
"Together our Private IP and Ethernet services deliver an ideal business communications platform to handle big-bandwidth applications in a similar fashion, no matter where they are located around the world," Recine said.
The company said that the Managed Network Services customers can use the Verizon Enterprise Center, which enables business customers to securely check online the status of their orders, review and pay bills, monitor their network service performance, and open trouble tickets.
