FLORHAM PARK, N.J. -- Global Crossing (NASDAQ: GLBC) today announced the global availability of Interprovider MPLS (iMPLS™), an enhanced provider interconnect service that allows MPLS-based service providers to seamlessly extend IP Virtual Private Network (IP VPN) service reach beyond their region.

Based on leading industry standards and technology, iMPLS dramatically enhances a provider's time-to-market capability for serving out-of-region customers while minimizing the capital expense needed to build out an extended network and service infrastructure. iMPLS also grants service providers immediate access to Global Crossing's converged IP applications.

"This is a win-win for service providers and commercial businesses," said John Legere, Global Crossing's chief executive officer. "Both can now deliver seamless, robust service continuity for mission-critical IP applications beyond their original footprint, offering security and the ability to truly converge communications."

With Global Crossing's iMPLS, service providers can efficiently provision, manage and maintain an MPLS interconnect service for delivering reliable and robust end-to-end VPN services. Global Crossing iMPLS provides seamless, scalable MPLS-based IP VPN service expansion, providing rapid time-to-market capabilities with minimal capital investment.
