Covad Communications Opens Up New MPLS VPN Services

Voice and data communications provider also makes new quality of services and class of services capabilities available.

Covad Communications Company has announced general availability of its MPLS VPN services.

In addition, the voice and data communications provider also rolled out new quality of service (QoS), class of service (CoS) capabilities. These latest introductions complete the company’s rollout of an intelligent network platform.

Covad says its MPLS VPNs are for SMBs and distributed enterprises that “need to share information and applications securely and privately between locations.”†

Covad MPLS VPNs protect sensitive company information end-to-end on the Covad carrier-grade nationwide network using WAN connectivity. Because MPLS VPN traffic never touches the public Internet, it is protected from attacks or malicious activity.

Covad Wholesale vice president of marketing Young-Sae Song says the MPLS VPNs provide “secure, private, and affordable” services that can “be delivered over any type of broadband connection, from DSL for branch offices to DS3s for headquarters.”

“With Covad-managed MPLS VPNs, partners can provide their end customers with a scalable, cost-effective solution for secure, private WAN connectivity,” Song says.

According to Covad, the new QoS/CoS enables its partners to “take full advantage of network traffic management” for applications dependent on high delivery and low latency. Covad CoS uses prioritization at the entry points to the broadband circuit, enabling the prioritization of different traffic types–such as VoIP and data–to enhance the performance of an end-customer’s critical applications.

Song says adding QoS / CoS capabilities to Covad’s MPLS infrastructure enables its partners to deliver revenue-generating, value-added services on a national broadband platform. “Value-added applications, such as VoIP, video conferencing, VPN, and software as a service (SaaS) increase revenue potential and help encourage customer loyalty,” he says.
