Vodafone announced a more than threefold increase in the number of points of presence (PoPs) available to enterprise customers across the U.S., Canada and South America.
Recently, Vodafone exited from the U.S. telecom market by selling its stake in Verizon Wireless.
The expansion enables businesses to gain the benefit of internet protocol virtual private network (IP-VPN) services from a single supplier.
The global MPLS-enabled network will connect 212 PoPs across Europe, Asia, Africa, Middle East and the Americas.
Vodafone will establish an additional 21 PoPs in North America and 12 in South America and Latin America, each of which will be in locations close to Vodafone’s major enterprise customer sites and data centre locations.
Over the coming months, Vodafone will connect more than 67 countries directly, rising to more than 150 countries via partner networks.
“For the first time, multinational customers in the Americas region can benefit from global end-to-end services supplied by a single supplier,” said Chuck Pol, Vodafone Global Enterprise President of the Americas region.
