New Edge Networks (Booths 508-510) announced plans to introduce class-of-service support for its MPLS network services, aiming to expand its offerings to also attract customers with larger bandwidth and performance needs.
New Edge Networks expects to introduce by Oct. 1, five classes of service that will allow businesses to prioritize application data traffic over their IP-based VPNs.
New Edge Networks will honor class of service across a customers entire network, from customer location to customer location.
The five classes of service are real-time, interactive, enhanced, business-class and best-effort, supporting everything from Internet telephony and video conferencing to e-mail and PoS transactions. Today, New Edge Networks offers a single class of business service with its MPLS technology at the core of its network.
By offering five classes of service and honoring them across the customers entire network, we are positioning New Edge Networks to effectively serve businesses with converged voice, video and data applications, said Dan Moffat, president of New Edge Networks.
New Edge Networks accelerated its MPLS enhancements through investments from EarthLink, which acquired the company on April 13. Through its national broadband infrastructure, New Edge Networks said it can provide MPLS access to more than 90 percent of U.S. business locations.
