Infonet Offering Industry's First Globally Supported IP VPN In Public and Private Networks

Managed network services provider Infonet announced that has launched the industry’s first IP Virtual Private Network (VPN) across both public and private global networks.

 

Infonet offers organizations highly secure communication over the company’s Internet network. Infonet’s latest internet-based service gives multinational companies an added layer of security, by shifting the provisioning of Internet-based VPN’s to outside vendors like Infonet. Customers are provided a cost-effective alternative to creating and supporting their own do-it-yourself (DIY) IP VPN’s.

 

Mark Winter, group vice president, worldwide communications, IDC, further explained what makes Infonet’s IP VPN such an attractive offering. “Multinational companies,” he said, “with in house VPN solutions are increasingly looking for an alternative that provides more security and convenience.” He added, “Infonet’s new IP VPN Internet is the first solution for companies that want to migrate to a managed service that adapts to their locations and resources.”

 

More than this, Infonet’s security protocol for VPN’s is considered to be among the best in the industry. They use what is known as Multi-Protocol Label Switching (MPLS) that allows for development of hierarchical layers in VPNs. This offers maximum scalability and flexibility. Adding to this is Infonet’s optimized routing path, known as “Cold Potato Routing that moves over the company’s backbone for connections between all sites comprising a VPN. Customers can, if they so wish, have local access to the Internet from their IP VPN site. Infonet covers the customer’s risk of security exposure, with customer-specific reporting of any non-secure activity connected with their use of local networks.

 

Infonet is well equipped to provide customized solutions to their customers’ VPN initiatives. “Our clients are diverse,” said Jean-Noel Moneton vice president of IP Services for Infonet, “and the specific needs at each of their sites often times are as well. Some sites may need converged voice, video, and data, while others may need low cost connectivity to an FTP or mail server. For global businesses with DIY VPNs or single class of service requirements, IP VPN Internet is a unique option that integrates with our private, multi-class service, and offers the best mix of price, performance, and security in the industry.”

 

Infonet’s IP VPN is available today in over 55 countries, and can operate at speeds of up to 155Mbps. Telemark rated the customer “Best in Class,” in their survey of Global Managed Data Network Services.
