OVERLAND PARK, Kan. -- Increased demand for global IP solutions among enterprise customers is prompting Sprint (NYSE: FON) to double network capacity to and throughout Europe to address global access, performance and security requirements. Sprint's IP solutions have proven popular with U.S.-based and global multinational corporations (MNCs) seeking to integrate existing technologies or migrate to IP-based solutions.

Sprint is expanding trans-Atlantic capacity by 50 percent to augment growth and increasing its intra-European core capacity by 100 percent to supplement existing points of presence. This expansion is scheduled to be completed during August and helps Sprint address the global communication requirements of corporations that need to connect employees, customers and business partners. Last fall, Sprint extended its standard Multiprotocol Label Switching (MPLS) virtual private network (VPN) offering to over 100 countries in Europe, Asia and Latin America, providing a secure and highly scalable solution to support the convergence of voice, video and data onto one network-based IP VPN platform.

"Sprint is one of few truly international providers that can support enterprise connectivity needs worldwide," remarked Dan Dooley, vice president - International Markets, Sprint Business Solutions. "Our commitment to customer global communication needs is behind the expansion of our IP capabilities in Europe and contributes to our existing presence in North America, South America and the Asia Pacific region."
