Vancouver, Washington – (The Hosting News) – September 6, 2006 – Business and communications network provider, New Edge Networks, is hosting a series of complimentary seminars for local businesses and communications consultants, featuring practical guidance on building private networks and the advantages of using MPLS technology.
MPLS (Multi-protocol Label Switching), was developed to enable businesses to converge data, voice, and video applications over a single high-speed network and prioritize communications traffic for critical applications, such as Internet phone calls, streaming video, or video surveillance, to facilitate cost and operating efficiency.
New Edge Networks has scheduled half-day seminars in Seattle, Dallas, and New York, targeting locally based information technology managers and communications network consultants. Attendance is limited to 25 on a first-come basis.
Chief Technology Officer, Jonathan Mapes, and Director of Product Management, Brett Theiss, will lead the seminars, which include a lunch buffet and a post-seminar networking reception. They will discuss the advantages of MPLS, network considerations, impacts on businesses, and how to evaluate network providers.
Greg Griffiths, Vice President of Marketing for New Edge Networks offered, ”There is tremendous confusion in the telecom market at a time when demand for network services is increasing faster than ever. Our seminars bring focus and sensible guidance on building MPLS networks and leveraging new technology. The seminars are also an excellent forum for networking among their peers with common network challenges and considerations.”
The dates and locations for the initial seminars include the following:
— Sept. 7, Bellevue, Wash., Courtyard Bellevue Downtown
— Sept. 12, Dallas, Marriott Dallas, Addison Quorum/Galleria
— Sept. 14, New York, Marriott Marquis Times Square.
Other cities and dates will be set later this fall. New Edge Networks announced Aug. 23 that it is adding five classes of service for its MPLS network services.
