Verizon Business Customers Access Next-Generation Convergence Solutions Through Partnership with Chi
Verizon Business has been working with China Telecom on MPLS VPN since2004, enabling full interconnectivity between the Verizon Private IP global network and China Telecom's national MPLS network. Hundreds of multinational customers in China already use more than 600 connections to leverage the power and global reach of the combined China Telecom/Verizon Private IP networks.
Verizon Business customers were among the first nondomestic customers to be granted access to the new China Telecom Next Convergence Network. CN2 has backbone core nodes located in Beijing, Chengdu, Guangzhou, Nanjing, Shanghai, Wuhan and Xian.
John Killian, president, Verizon Business, commented: "China is widely acknowledged as a high-growth economy, and therefore is a strategic focus area for many of Verizon Business' global customers. Connectivity to CN2 allows us to seamlessly extend the high quality of features and services we already offer over the Verizon Business global IP network directly into the Chinese market. For our multinational customers based in or expanding into China, this clearly demonstrates our continued commitment to supporting their expanding voice and data communications requirements.
