Sprint now offers businesses Sprint 4G Enterprise WAN (wide area network), a fixed wireless access solution that the carrier says provides speed, reliability and secure wireless connectivity to the Sprint Global MPLS network. Sprint says this enables businesses to replace or improve on traditional "wired" options with a solution that is cost-effective, fast and flexible to deploy without compromising bandwidth and network reliability. Its available within all Sprint 4G markets.
With 4G Enterprise WAN, Sprint delivers customers increased flexibility for their branch locations or retail operations through high-speed wireless connectivity and more built-in reliability than typical wireline creating a real competitive advantage for their business,” said Tom Roberts, vice president of business marketing, Sprint.
Using professionally installed business-class outdoor modems, Sprint 4G Enterprise WAN provides secure 4G and 3G wireless access as primary and secondary network connectivity, backed by a 99.95 percent availability service level agreement (SLA). With faster time-to-deployment, 15 business days in contrast to the often lengthy process of ordering traditional wireline circuits, Sprint says its 4G Enterprise WAN is an alternative to the traditional T-1, or a whole new way to bring data connectivity to remote locations where the installation of traditional dedicated circuits is problematic.
Explorer Pipeline, operator of a 1,900-mile fuel pipeline from the Gulf Coast to the Midwest, is an early user of Sprint 4G Enterprise WAN at its storage facility in Houston.
Sprint 4G Enterprise WAN comes with branch office locations and retail operations; a more flexible and cost-effective data deployment option; and business-class bandwidth in many places where it simply wasnt available before.
