Verizon Enables 100GE Access for Private IP Service

Extending High-Bandwidth Technology Is Next Step for Cloud Access 
  • Share

NEW YORK – Verizon has deployed 100GE (gigabit Ethernet) technology to the edge routers of its Private IP network, giving global enterprise customers faster speeds and the bandwidth needed as they adopt new technologies that transform their global business infrastructures.

This 100GE technology enhancement provides the bandwidth and speed required to access information stored in remote locations as enterprise customers move more and more applications and data to the cloud.

Verizon’s Private IP service provides the foundation for communication and business-process automation both within and between companies, including e-commerce, shared intranets and extranets as well as video applications.

“The increase in demand for cloud and data center connectivity is driving the decision to expand our service offering to higher speeds in order to meet the bandwidth needs of our customers by providing reliable, high-performance and secure services,” said Ihab Tarazi, vice president of product technology. “Verizon is a leader in high-bandwidth technology, and extending 100GE to the edge is the next natural step for us.”

With 100GE connectivity to Verizon’s Private IP Virtual Private Network service, customers are able to effectively communicate over a secure high-performance network with guaranteed service levels for their applications.

“Our customers are transforming the way they access information and increasingly are looking to quickly turn their big data into information that offers real business advantages,” said Rich Montgomery, Verizon group vice president for Europe, the Middle East and Asia. “Extending 100GE to the edge gives customers the connectivity they need to run their businesses most effectively while staying competitive in the global market.”

Verizon will implement the technology on the same U.S. and European routes where 100G long-haul is deployed.

In addition, the company now is offering standardized 1GE and 10GE access for its Private IP network to continue to support the growing bandwidth needs of customer applications. Standardization of these services means quicker ordering and delivery, compared with previous processes.
