Verizon Partner Solutions (VPS), the wholesale arm of Verizon Communications, has moved under the new Verizon Services Organization created from the merging of Verizon Business and Verizon Telecom at the beginning of 2009, said Quintin Lew, Verizon senior vice president.
The wholesaler will be discussing the implications of the organizational changes with customers at the COMPTEL PLUS Convention & Expo this week in Dallas.
Verizon Business targeted enterprises and essentially represented legacy MCI network while Verizon Telecom focused more on consumers and SMB and represented the legacy Verizon business. VPS’ Lew said there now is only one Verizon, no longer the MCI and legacy Verizon networks.
While VPS has been selling the joint portfolio for some time, now its operations will be integrated as well, Lew said. He noted that no changes have been made to VPS and it still has 10,000 customers who have expressed interest to the agents and partners.
