US LEC Advances its MPLS Rollout

US LEC Corp. announced the expansion of its MPLS VPN service to the cities and surrounding areas of Birmingham and Mobile, Ala., Memphis and Nashville, Tenn., and New Orleans, completing one of the final stages of the company's MPLS VPN roll-out.

The service can be scaled from fractional T1 speeds to DS3 (45 Mbs) to Ethernet Local Loop. US LEC offers both metro and wide-area networking options that allow customers to connect locally within a metro area or across large geographic distances.

In addition to Memphis and Nashville, the company now provides MPLS VPN to businesses in the East Tennessee cities of Bristol, Chattanooga, Cleveland, Johnson City, Kingsport and Knoxville, the Kentucky cities of Lexington, Louisville and Elizabethtown, and the Indiana cities of New Albany, Sellersburg and Clarksville. The addition of Birmingham, Mobile and New Orleans connects the Deep South section of US LEC's network and brings the total number of MPLS VPN-enabled switching centers to 25.
