THE HAGUE -- KPN International, a leading European provider of next-generation telecommunications services, has extended its coverage for network solutions into the United States and Canada, strengthening the KPN International global network. The connections between KPN International’s network in Europe and locations in North America are based on a new partnership agreement with Sprint which interconnects both IP networks. As a result, MPLS and Wide Area Network solutions for multinational enterprises are enabled, helping them to connect with employees, partners, suppliers and customers worldwide.

KPN International customers will now benefit also in North America from the robust security and reliability of global MPLS VPN services which are highly flexible, scalable and quick to implement. Customers will enjoy a network experience consistent with that on KPN’s network today, regardless of their geographic locations. The extended capabilities will also deliver fully managed networking services to simplify network management and maintenance for businesses.

“The extensive coverage into the U.S. and Canada is a further step in KPN International’s successful strategy of partnering with global carriers. Our partnerships with Sprint for North America, with SingTel for Asia and Telefonica for South America enable our customers a truly global network experience, covering 85% of the world economy” explains Carolien Nijhuis, Vice President of KPN International. “Multinational customers like Groeneveld Transport Efficiency B.V. have already benefited from the new agreement with Sprint to connect their locations in Europe, the U.S. and Canada via an end-to-end MPLS VPN network.”
