Verizon expands private IP capabilities to 10 more countries

Verizon on Monday said it expanded its Private IP capabilities into 10 more countries — Bangladesh, Cambodia, Laos, Nepal, Iraq, Lebanon, Yemen, Madagascar, Mauritius and Tunisia — in the Middle East, Africa and Asia-Pacific regions.

These 10 countries are emerging markets.

Verizon Private IP Multiprotocol Private Label Switching (MPLS) services now reach more than 150 countries and territories.

In 2014, Private IP expansion will focus on Central and South America, Verizon said.

The expansion will enable Verizon to address customer demand for additional routes by adding another location in Chennai, India, and another one in Johannesburg, South Africa.


Customers with business in those countries now can take advantage of these new diverse routes, which provide additional access to MPLS services while increasing the benefits of resiliency and extended reach.

Mike Palmer, vice president of strategic solutions, Verizon product strategy and product management, said: “As our Private IP customers invest and locate in new areas, we are committed to meet the increased network requirements. To stay ahead of our customers’ needs, we’ll continue to add new locations and provide reliable, secure and scalable network services that enable our customers to successfully grow their businesses.”

Verizon service enables e-business applications, and secure business-to-business e-commerce, dynamic bandwidth and the ability to connect sites in an any-to-any configuration, with easier customer network configuration and management.
