Sprint extends MPLS VPN end-to-end service level agreements to include global partner networks
February 22, 2007
OVERLAND PARK, Kan. -- Sprint (NYSE: S) continues to build on the power of its MPLS VPN capabilities for U.S.-based and multinational corporations. Now, end-to-end MPLS VPN Service Level Agreements (SLAs) are extended across global partner networks, which help expand Sprint’s Global MPLS VPN capabilities for business customers to 137 countries worldwide.
Today Sprint also announces its enhancement of the long-standing partnership with Orange Business Services by increasing the overall breadth of services to include IP/MPLS capabilities in additional areas worldwide, notably throughout Europe and Asia. Sprint end-to-end MPLS VPN SLAs now apply to network connectivity with Orange, as well as other similar global partners.
Sprint Global MPLS VPN service allows businesses to converge data, voice, and video on a single network platform. This scalable service also includes robust network security and redundancy measures, flexible access options, and integration with Sprint wireless services to provide businesses and their customers with dependable, high-performing access to their information and applications whenever and wherever they need it. Sprint was the first global service provider to receive Cisco’s “IP VPN – Multiservice QoS” certification to support real-time voice and video traffic.
“We continue to grow our IP/MPLS business domestically and internationally, helping our customers plan for the future by enhancing the capabilities available to their businesses,” said Dan Dooley, vice president of international markets for Sprint. “By extending end-to-end MPLS SLAs to include our partners, customers can count on the quality of MPLS service they’ve come to expect from Sprint everywhere across the global Sprint-owned and partner MPLS footprints. The new relationship with Orange Business Services further validates our commitment to take IP/MPLS network connectivity to wherever our customers are doing business.”
