MCI Adds Broadband Gateway Service

MCI unveiled two new additions to its Secure Interworking Gateway (SIG) Services suite to help business and government customers extend their enterprise networks by securely combining the power of private and public IP networking.

Broadband VPN Interworking enables MCI's Frame Relay and Private IP customers to connect smaller remote offices with low-cost secure broadband connectivity using DSL and cable access. MCI's Broadband VPN Interworking also provides built-in redundancy with dual SIG ports for continuous network operation, as well as a low-cost failover solution for Private IP customers to improve business continuity.

Secure Internet Access enables MCI's business customers to securely connect their Frame, ATM and Private IP networks to the Internet for Web access and email through an MCI network-based firewall.

The new services are available immediately to U.S-based customers with plans to roll-out Broadband VPN Interworking and Secure Internet Access in Europe and Asia Pacific later this year.
