MCI's Private IP Service Grows Significantly
MCI's Private IP service tripled its number of customers and network connections in 2004, and expanded its reach into India, China and the Middle East.
MCI is also adding new access to its MPLS-based VPN with satellite connectivity and offering new firewall capabilities with the service.
"Companies today rely on networks as the lifeblood of their business," said Nancy Gofus, senior vice president, Product Management for MCI. "Private IP, with its advanced features and strong global reach, is proving to be an ideal networking platform for enterprises of all sizes to run IP applications, including converged voice, video and data."
"MCI's Private IP Service and VoIP are a powerful one-two combination," said David Kozlowski, vice president of Technical Engineering for Euler Hermes ACI. "With Private IP, Euler is achieving new operating efficiencies worldwide and greater flexibility so we can better focus on our number one priority, our customers."
Continuing to serve its customers' global requirements, MCI has introduced Private IP in high demand nations like India, China and Israel. Companies requiring secure private connections in these countries can now connect in multiple cities, creating a seamless global enterprise network managed by a single provider. In 2004, MCI also expanded into four new countries, including Taiwan, Poland, South Korea and the Czech Republic.
MCI's new Satellite connectivity option enables customers to connect in out-of-the-way locations reliably and securely. Ideal for business continuity purposes, MCI's satellite connections range in speed from 64 Kbps to 2 Mbps and are available in the U.S., Puerto Rico and U.S. Virgin Islands.
MCI's expanded access footprint will enable customers to connect to the Private IP network from more than 90 countries using a combination of access methods such as frame, ATM, IP, DSL and now satellite. What's more, Private IP customers can connect remote users to corporate resources and the Internet through MCI's Secure Interworking Gateway.
