Verizon’s Enterprise Solutions Group this week launched a national transparent LAN service to provide point-to-point connectivity between business sites over a shared backbone infrastructure.

The MPLS-based service is available in 18 bandwidth options ranging from 10M bit/sec to 600M bit/sec. It encrypts data for transport over the public Internet.

Verizon is targeting the service at customers in the government, finance, higher education and healthcare vertical markets needing high-speed data transfers between branch offices and headquarters or data centers, as well as typical LAN interconnection traffic for e-mail and Internet connectivity.

Verizon’s new service is available now in select Northeast and mid-Atlantic areas and will expand this the summer to the South and West. It will ultimately reach 35 markets across the country, the carrier says. 

The local version of the switched Ethernet service is currently available in 56 markets throughout Verizon’s 29-state/District of Columbia territory.
