The Verizon Business' managed local area network (LAN) service is now available in the Asia Pacific region.
The LAN services enable customers to fully or partially outsource the management of their corporate networks.
A key benefit for enterprises is a seamless view of WAN (wide area network) and LAN environments that can enhance performance and reliability, while reducing overall network operations costs.
It also reduces the risks involved with deploying converged networks and emerging IP-based applications such as Voice over Internet Protocol (VoIP).
Current Analysis, principal analyst, Dustin Kehoe, said the LAN is just as important as the WAN.
Verizon's vice president of global product marketing, Mike Marcellin, agrees adding that the LAN is becoming an increasingly business-critical and performance-sensitive environment.
"Our global customers are increasingly looking to bring the same high levels of performance and reliability they have come to expect in the extended enterprise to the corporate headquarters," he said.
"By outsourcing LAN management to a trusted third party, and tightly integrating it with the WAN, customers are able to enhance their overall network performance and availability and better support their overall business needs."
Verizon Business now manages more than 250,000 customer communication devices worldwide, including more than 65,000 LAN switches, and manages more than 4,000 customer networks in 142 countries.
