These enhancements include new monitoring options that give wholesale customers an improved view into statistics that reflect the health of their network. As a result, customers now have a view of network traffic from the circuit connection to the provider edge, providing an end-to-end look.
New speeds and new interconnection choices have also been added and, as a result, Verizon Global Wholesale has improved its provisioning process and order forms to reflect these additions. Customers will now find a more streamlined experience when ordering and provisioning Private IP (PIP) services.
Verizon’s PIP service relies on a dedicated private multiprotocol label switching (MPLS) core on a completely autonomous network, providing customers with high levels of network quality and reliability. Functioning as a network-based Virtual Private Network, PIP provides the foundation for automating business processes such as e-commerce and shared extranets or intranets.
Verizon also offers service-level metrics that are measured on each "hop" (segments on the network route) as opposed to a network average.
Verizon’s PIP service, now offered in more than 120 countries, supports applications such as conferencing, Voice over IP, point of sale transactions and multicasting VPNs.
