Under the deal Verizon’s enterprise customers will continue to be able to take advantage of the company’s entire suite of Managed Network Services – including Software Defined Networking (SDN) and Virtual Network Service (VNS) bundles – with Enterprise Ethernet connectivity directly sourced from NBN Co’s enterprise-grade infrastructure.
Verizon says that Australian businesses, multinational companies and government agencies now have the ability to combine NBN Co's infrastructure with Verizon’s “world-class service and innovation”.
According to Verizon, locally, increasingly its Australian customers are asking technology providers to meet their requirements to provide connection to the NBN.
“Verizon is pleased to be able to present a compelling alternative to Australian enterprise and government businesses.
“This agreement provides choice and competition that hasn't existed on this scale before. Businesses, particularly those outside of the major cities, deserve access to the globally recognised, best in class services and capabilities that Verizon offers,” Le Busque concluded.
Verizon – which is a panellist on the Whole-of-Australian-Government Telecommunications Services Panel - says its agreement with NBN Co marks yet another milestone for the business in Australia, providing managed network and security services to enterprise and government customers in Australia for over 20 years including 75-plus Commonwealth and State Government agencies.
