Enterprise application data flows have changed, and outdated network architectures can increase latency or traffic delays, resulting in reduced application performance. In response, Level 3 Communications Inc. is marketing a new wide area networking (WAN) solution for enterprises.

The WAN solution includes an integrated portfolio of such advanced services as dedicated Internet access (DIA), multi-protocol label switching (MPLS)-based virtual private network (VPN), Ethernet and managed services as well as a professional services portfolio to support business needs behind the customer premise equipment.

Notes Paul Savill, senior vice president/Data, Transport and Infrastructure Services for Level 3, "By building in features such as WAN optimization and professional services, our new WAN offering is an integrated package designed to help enterprises improve the performance of their critical applications, consolidate network management and, ultimately, succeed in their market."

In addition to these components, Level 3 says new Ethernet access options serve competitive local exchange carrier (CLEC) and cable partners.
