Private Port / MPLS / VPN Service

Reduce Network Costs and Increase Flexibility

Today's fast-moving competitive environment makes the reliability of the virtual private network (VPN) essential. At the same time, you need a way to meet diverse communications needs while keeping costs as low as possible. 

With CenturyLink IQ™ Networking Private Port, you can meet both needs by cost-effectively combining your voice and data applications onto a single, flexible, and scalable VPN.

Based on the CenturyLink OC-192 IP network, one of the most advanced networks available, the service is isolated from the public Internet to provide better security and reliability of your business VPN services. As a fully meshed VPN with any-to-any connectivity, CenturyLink IQ Networking Private Port simplifies support for a variety of access types, including IP access, Ethernet, frame relay, and ATM. Multi-protocol label switching (MPLS) and flexible quality of service (QoS) let you segment and prioritize data traffic throughout your network to create the ideal high-performance environment for voice over IP (VoIP), video, and other bandwidth-intensive business applications. Competitive SLAs help ensure optimal business value and return on investment.
