Denver, Colorado – (The Hosting News) – July 21, 2006 –
High-speed Internet, data, video and voice services firm, Qwest Communications International Inc., has enhanced its iQ Networking service with project management, to provide a multi-protocol label switching (MPLS)-based wide-area network (WAN) platform for business customers. Qwest enterprise customers use the service as the underlying data infrastructure to connect all of locations.
Qwest’s project management service was developed to migrate from Frame Relay Service or other types of legacy networks to MPLS and can be complex and resource-intensive. The project management service offers eligible Qwest business customers an expert manager for the day-to-day tasks before, during and through complete implementation of new iQ Private Port solutions.
Eric Bozich, Vice President of Network Services for Qwest commented, ”From experience, we know that migration to a new network can be challenging. Through this transition management service, Qwest helps customers avoid common migration issues and missteps. Qwest iQ Networking, coupled with project management service, is a great way to address the real business challenges associated with any evolution to a new enterprise network. Ensuring customers are completely satisfied with their solution is our top priority.”
Sean Hackett, Research Manager for IDC added, ”At IDC, our research shows that network migration is a critical concern for many CIOs and network managers alike. We believe that a service provider offering, like Qwest’s transition management, will help ease these concerns.”
Qwest launched iQ Networking in early 2004 as the company’s convergence platform supporting any number of applications, such as Voice over Internet Protocol (VoIP), messaging and other IP communications. Qwest iQ Networking focuses on solving business problems, reducing total cost and delivering an unparalleled customer service experience.
