MCI's Releases Private IP VPN To Improve VoIP

Claim: An expanded network-based VPN offering will let MCI give preferential treatment to more applications. A jitter SLA will help ensure that IT gets the VoIP it pays for.

Context: The market for VoIP services is hot, with all the top carriers delivering some offering. This is particularly true for VPN services supporting VoIP.

Credibility: MCI was an early leader in both hosted VoIP services and the VPN space. This should add up to strong market leadership, but competitors are delivering tougher SLAs than what the company's Private IP service currently offers.


As enterprises converge around a common voice and data network, many will need more than just the usual three classes of service for their corporate WAN. This month, MCI will answer that need by adding four more service classes to its Private IP VPN service.
