Siemens Selects Verizon Business for Global MPLS

Siemens has awarded a global networking services contract to Verizon Business. Financial terms were not disclosed.

Under the deal, Verizon will provide Private IP service to support the Siemens corporate network, which carries all of the company's business-critical applications as well as VoIP, SAP and e-mail applications.

Verizon Business is one of only three certified providers supporting Siemens' global network and is currently charged with the deployment of network services to several newly opened Siemens enterprise locations in Europe and the United States.

Verizon Private IP is a high-performance, MPLS-based network that carries all types of traffic on a single VPN.
