Verizon Business' multinational customers now have seamless connectivity to China Telecom's Next Convergence Network, an IP platform that covers more than 200 cities and 600 routers within China.
Access to CN2 extends the benefits of Verizon Business' own expansive IP backbone network and portfolio of global IP and mobile devices, services and solutions across the fast-growing Chinese market.
Verizon Business has reportedly been working with China Telecom on MPLS VPN since 2004, enabling full interconnectivity between the Verizon Private IP global network and China Telecom's national MPLS network. Hundreds of multinational customers in China already use more than 600 connections to leverage the power and global reach of the combined China Telecom/Verizon Private IP networks. Verizon Business customers were among the first nondomestic customers to be granted access to the new China Telecom Next Convergence Network. CN2 has backbone core nodes located in Beijing, Chengdu, Guangzhou, Nanjing, Shanghai, Wuhan and Xian.
Verizon Business through its predecessor companies has been operational in China since 1993, and today has offices in Beijing, Shanghai and Guangzhou. Working in cooperation with leading Chinese service providers, the company delivers a full-service portfolio, from leased-line to MPLS/VPN services, to Chinese-based operations of its multinational customers.
