BASKING RIDGE, N.J. -- Customers of Verizon Business' Ethernet Virtual Private Line service now have broader control over network speed and capacity through an innovative dynamic bandwidth solution announced by the company today. Verizon Business is the first Tier One provider to standardize such a solution.
The new offering, Verizon EVPL Dynamic Bandwidth, is available immediately to U.S.-based businesses and government agencies. It enables them to adjust their bandwidth requirements on an as-needed basis, and, as a result, to better leverage the low cost and simplicity of Ethernet, with the added flexibility of self-provisioned network capacity that can accommodate surges in application-bandwidth.
"More than ever, customers are looking for reliable, secure, cost-effective and flexible networking solutions," said Tom Roche, vice president for global networking solutions with Verizon. "Our new dynamic bandwidth capability delivers additional speed and capacity to meet customer requirements -- at reasonable pricing to accommodate stressed IT budgets."
Verizon EVPL Dynamic Bandwidth is an ideal solution for large enterprise and mid-market customers -- such as tax preparers, retailers and insurance companies -- that have seasonal requirements and intermittent bandwidth demands.
Using the Verizon Enterprise Center, a one-stop resource for customers to manage all of their Verizon services, EVPL users have desktop control over a self-service portal that allows for dynamic bandwidth provisioning and reporting. Upgrades or downgrades can be delivered within sixty minutes, modifications can be made every 24 hours, and customers can schedule upgrades in advance.
Verizon's Private IP customers also have access to similar dynamic bandwidth and reporting capabilities via the Verizon Enterprise Center. The Dynamic Bandwidth and automated monitoring features, part of the company's Application Aware suite of tools that enable increased network visibility and management, allow for bandwidth changes on demand based on the customer's needs, and provide customized reports to indicate bandwidth usage.
"There is an insatiable hunger for bandwidth as technologies such as video transmission become more widely adopted by enterprises," said Blair Crump, worldwide president of sales with Verizon Business. "Our self-service dynamic bandwidth capability allows our EVPL and Private IP customers to make the most of their networks, at their convenience."
