Verizon Business Rolls Out IP Enhancements for Mid-Market Customers

Verizon Business introduced new integrated service packages designed specifically for the mid-market that combine the company's advanced wireline and wireless voice and data capabilities with security and network management. The service packages -- called BizPaks -- are ideally suited to customers operating from a single location.

The company's VoIP BizPak bundles Voice over IP with Internet Dedicated Access, Dedicated Toll Free and Managed Email Content services with the company's robust equipment offerings. Managed installation is included to ensure a smooth IP deployment.

The VoIP BizPak bundle is also offered with Verizon IP Integrated Access, a premises-based solution for mid-market customers who want to carry voice and data over the same connection while retaining their current phone system.

Customers wanting all the features of an IP PBX without the associated capital and maintenance costs can choose Hosted IP Centrex a network-based solution in which all IP PBX functionality resides within the Verizon Business network. Hosted IP Centrex -- a complete turnkey solution that features design, installation and ongoing maintenance for a low monthly fee -- is ideal for customers moving to or establishing a new location, or who are looking to replace their outdated legacy system.

For customers not yet ready to make the move to IP communications, Verizon Business' PRI (Primary Rate ISDN) BizPak bundles Verizon ISDN with Internet Dedicated Access and local and long-distance calling plans.

Customers seeking wireless access to the Verizon Private IP network now are able to do so through the Verizon Wireless Mobile Broadband EV-DO Rev. A data network.

Additionally, Verizon Business has enhanced its offerings for multi-site customers with Verizon Private IP, an MPLS-based virtual private network (VPN) service. Those customers now are able to access their Private IP network via the Verizon Wireless EV-DO Rev. A. 3G broadband data network.
