Sprint Extends MPLS VPN Benefits Globally

Sprint is extending its standard MPLS VPN offering to over 100 countries in Europe, Asia and Latin America. The service enables the convergence of voice, video and data onto one network-based IP VPN. Sprint's MPLS VPN provides customers with a secure private IP environment based on the IETF RFC 2547bis standard, supporting both intranet and extranet applications. Sprint is offering a flexible Class of Service (CoS) capability as a standard feature, with no additional setup fees or incremental charges based on the amount of real- time/high-priority traffic. As a network-based solution, Sprint handles addressing, routing and QoS.

Sprint has also extended network-based capabilities beyond the traditional VPN intranet service. Customers can select value-added services like remote access services (RAS), IPSec tunnel termination and secure Internet access protected by network-based firewalls. These offerings are provided at the Sprint network edge and integrate seamlessly with the customer's core MPLS VPN. Access options include DSL, Frame Relay, Private Line, Ethernet and wireless via Sprint PCS Data Link. http://www.sprint.com/business
