Level 3 Communications has announced a new wide area networking (WAN) solution for enterprises. The new network solution features a comprehensive approach to enterprise networking needs, including an integrated set of Level 3's advanced services, to better help enterprises to optimize the performance of critical business applications. As part of this solution, Level 3 is packaging services such as dedicated Internet access (DIA), multi-protocol label switching (MPLS)-based virtual private network (VPN), Ethernet and managed services as well as extending its professional services portfolio to support business needs behind the customer premise equipment, whether it be network design, onsite project management or simply staff augmentation.
Given the explosion of virtualization, mobility and cloud applications, enterprises are increasingly struggling with complex networks and architectures that hinder business productivity and efficiency. Enterprise application data flows have changed, and outdated network architectures can increase latency, and dramatically delay traffic, resulting in poor application performance. The increasing amount and complexity of network traffic for businesses require comprehensive solutions that can prioritize and accelerate essential applications and enhance their performance.
Level 3's new WAN solution includes multiple components that offer an integrated approach to solving complex network management. The package includes: improved WAN assessment and design that incorporates professional services, varying levels of managed services for customer equipment, network-based firewalls to speed up access to cloud applications, WAN optimization that offers increased visibility into application performance, and a full portfolio of Level 3's advanced, award-winning data services. In addition to these components, new Ethernet access options with competitive local exchange carrier (CLEC) and cable partners extend Level 3's reach to help enterprises lower total costs while maintaining end-to-end service level agreements (SLAs).
