Telcove Launches Managed VPN

Telecommunications services provider TelCove has launched a managed VPN to give its customers' telecommuter and mobile employees secure, remote access to resources on their corporate networks from any location.

TelCove VPN services use Cisco VPN 3000 Series Concentrators at customer sites and Cisco 7600 Series Routers in its network. The VPN has earned the Cisco Powered Network designation.

By outsourcing remote VPN solutions, customers may minimize their overall infrastructure investment and are able to focus their IT resources on other areas of their business, say TelCove officials.

"We are excited about the Cisco Powered Network designation," Craig Drinkhall, senior vice president, product development and engineering at TelCove said in a statement. "We believe the combination of the Cisco 7600 Series routers within our core IP backbone and Cisco VPN 3000 series concentrators at the edge will provide the level of security, scalability, and reliability in the new VPN offering that customers expect from TelCove."

"TelCove's acceptance into the Cisco Powered Network Program demonstrates its commitment to providing high-end network services based on a Cisco network," added Kirt Jorgenson, director of service provider marketing, Cisco Systems.
