Verizon Business Takes Virtual Private LAN Service Global

Enterprises around the world now can seamlessly transform their Ethernet local area networks into wide area networks, with Verizon Business' global expansion of its Virtual Private LAN Service (VPLS).

The offering is now available to customers in Europe, Asia-Pacific and North America, giving global enterprises a scalable solution for managing voice, data and video applications across distributed business locations.

Verizon Business' VPLS service combines the simplicity of the Ethernet and the flexibility of multiprotocol label switching (MPLS) to help organisations reap the benefits of wide area networking from their local area networks. The service uses a seamless and standardised global provisioning platform that appeals to multinational customers that require a consistent look and feel to increase efficiencies and control support costs.

With this global expansion, the reach of Verizon VPLS will extend beyond the US to customers in 31 international locations, including the United Kingdom, France, Germany, India, Australia, Canada, Hong Kong, Singapore and South Korea. Verizon Business leverages its extensive network of interconnection agreements with other in-region Ethernet providers to offer this expansive coverage.

Verizon VPLS, an advanced MPLS-based layer 2 virtual private network delivered via Verizon Business' innovative global-provisioning Ethernet platform, is ideal for organisations seeking to link multiple sites in a flexible, operationally-efficient model. VPLS is protocol-independent, supporting both IP and non-IP applications, which allows customers to retain complete control of their own routing. In addition, VPLS allows customers to access Verizon's portfolio of Ethernet services and other data networking services offered by the company.

VPLS is an optimal platform for converged networking as it allows for prioritisation of applications via multiple classes of services (CoS). An organisation can customise prioritisation to ensure that business-critical applications receive the highest priority across the network. VPLS also enables customers to provision their network bandwidth from 1 megabit per second to 1 gigabit per second and beyond, enabling efficient transmission of voice and data traffic.
