Verizon Intros Private Networking Via LTE
BASKING RIDGE, N.J. -- Verizon today introduced Private Network Traffic Management, an industry-first wireless networking solution among U.S.-based carriers that gives business and government customers the ability to manage mobile applications for better performance, enable prioritization among applications and increase productivity.
A subscription-based offering available only to Verizon Private Network customers, the new traffic management solution can be added to select Verizon Private Network 4G LTE devices for a monthly fee per user, based on the service level option selected. The service levels, which feature a ‘Mission Critical’ traffic management class, ideal for applications such as video and voice-over-IP, include:
“The value proposition of Verizon’s latest offering for organizations is quite dramatic,” said Kathryn Weldon, principal analyst for Enterprise Mobility with Current Analysis. “Since the advent of 4G LTE wireless networks, we haven’t seen anything like this which allows customers to prioritize their business critical applications over classes of service from their mobile devices. In addition, the seamless integration of Verizon’s private wireless network with the company’s global IP private wireline network extends the enterprise to a wireless environment, offering significant benefits for leveraging the Internet of Things and other mobility initiatives.”
