BellSouth has launched a nationwide data service for businesses. The service enables businesses to link multiple office facilities that are broadly distributed throughout the country to corporate resources, even if the different locations have differing network access requirements.
The MPLS-based IP routing of BellSouth Managed Network VPN creates a full mesh data network, allowing each customer site to cost-effectively communicate directly with any of the other locations and conserving headquarters bandwidth for corporate functions.
BellSouth claims to have the only business service on the market that combines MPLS, Class of Service offerings and proactive service level agreements. Class of Service routing paves the way for additional convergence by allowing enterprises to assign higher priority to voice-over-IP, video and imaging applications.
