Network Connectivity

Networking solutions designed to meet your challenges.

Our Network Services deliver secure, reliable connectivity with low latency and high availability-whether you are connecting between geographically diverse locations or points within the data center.

Choose from a range of connectivity options, including:

  • Multiprotocol label switching (MPLS) virtual private network (VPN). Get 100% core-network availability for secure converged data, voice and video traffic-all on a single network connection.

  • Private line services. Support your global networking, security and business continuity requirements with Ethernet Virtual Private Line, Ethernet Private Line, Optical Wavelength Service and International Private Line.

  • Internet bandwidth. Connect your users and bandwidth-intensive business applications, with superior peering and interconnectivity-plus reliability with a network recovery time of less than 50 milliseconds.

Check out our network locations and points of presence for IP/MPLS, fiber, optical wavelength and international services.
