Verizon Business has officially opened for business at its offices in more than 75 countries around the world. The new company provides communications and information technology (IT) solutions to large businesses and government.
On its launch the company unveiled a line of integrated services including new integrated wireless and wired network access offerings and a targeted advertising campaign.
The Verizon Business was created by the merger of Verizon Communications and MCI. The company says it currently serves 94% of the Fortune 500 largest companies, being the leading communications provider for the US federal government.
The new Verizon Business product suite combines the capabilities of the former Verizon Enterprise Solutions Group and MCI to offer a portfolio of end-to-end communications and IT solutions. The company wants to use its global reach and combination of wireless and wireline capabilities to be a single-source provider of local-to-global IP networking, managed services, security, IT services, mobility and business continuity solutions, and more.
As part of its newly integrated product and services portfolio, Verizon Business is launching an enhanced suite of Enterprise Mobility solutions, based on the former MCI's remote access suite. The new mobility offering features an advanced platform, endpoint security and EV-DO (Evolution-Data Optimized) broadband wireless capability, enabling workers to securely access their corporate systems and the Internet while traveling or working remotely.
Additionally, the company is making wireless broadband access available as a business continuity solution that provides companies with a wireless backup for their data networks, helping to maintain continuous operation in the event of primary network disruption resulting from natural disasters or other unforeseen circumstances.
Verizon Business' Fortune 500 customers include Boeing, CSX, and McDonald's among others. The company manages some of the world's most complex and sophisticated networks with some of the highest performance commitments available today for customers including NASDAQ and the Federal Aviation Administration.
