BASKING RIDGE, N.J. -- Verizon Business will provide Siemens, one of the world's largest electrical engineering and electronics companies, with global networking services under an agreement announced Thursday (March 1). Verizon Private IP will support the Siemens corporate network, the communications link between various global business units that carries all of the company's business-critical applications as well as voice-over-IP (VoIP), SAP and e-mail applications.

Verizon Business is one of only three certified providers supporting Siemens' global network and is currently charged with the deployment of network services to several newly opened Siemens enterprise locations in Europe and the United States. Siemens chose to invest in Verizon Private IP due to the service's global reach and technical management capabilities. By unifying its enterprise locations on a single communications infrastructure, Siemens will benefit from flexible and efficient voice and data communications.

Alfons Kuhn, SCN director from Siemens, said: "The global strength of Verizon Business' state-of-the-art communication infrastructure was a key factor in our selection considerations. It is important for us to know that our network is managed by the best possible partner and supported with strong service level agreements and transparent reporting. Verizon Business gives us the reassurance we need to ensure that we can continue growing our business, safe in the knowledge that our existing global network is operating securely and effectively."
