Equant Releases Managed Solution For Cisco IP VPNs
Equant has announced a new, global local area network utility service that integrates with its Cisco-based IP virtual private network (VPN).
Designed with multi-national corporations and multi-site networks in mind, Equant LAN VPN service extends all the way to the desktop, creating a seamless wide-area network (WAN)/LAN environment. The service provides customers with a fully managed LAN billed on a utility model consisting of an initial set-up cost and monthly charges per port or per site. According to Equant, this eliminates much of the expense associated with implementing a secure enterprise WAN.
The LAN VPN service permits integrated quality of service (QoS) reporting across the WAN and allows Equant to guarantee end-to-end service levels. Customers can take advantage of the service's real-time performance monitoring between LANs throughout their global enterprise networks, regardless of location, and rely on Equant's centralized staff to support implementation and configuration
"Equant is the first global service provider to offer LAN VPN, a fully managed global WAN and LAN service that is totally integrated into Equant's IP VPN solution," Mack Treece, Equant's North American sales and marketing, said in a statement. "LAN VPN benefits customers by offering end-to-end QoS design and management with integrated customer care features such as ordering and billing."
