Level 3 Offers Customers Wireless Backup for Business Continuity

April 24, 2011

BROOMFIELD, Colo.–(BUSINESSWIRE)–
Level 3 Communications, Inc. today announced a new
wireless backup solution that provides customers protection against any
disruption to their network services. The wireless solution provides a
reliable alternative to traditional IP network backup, simplifies
business-continuity options, and offers an economical solution for
organizations hoping to avoid the costs of purchasing diverse network
paths.

With the increasing reliance on digital systems in today’s international
business environment, a disruption of telecommunications services or
loss of critical information can be crippling to an organization.
Enterprises require redundant solutions to ensure their business systems
operate without interruption to protect the company’s viability and its
ability to effectively serve its customers. Government agencies also
require redundant solutions to ensure they can provide citizens with
critical public services during a crisis.

“Our increasingly information-based economy requires the rapid adoption
of interconnected network systems for global commerce and, at the same
time, governments are increasingly dependent on network systems to
provide critical federal services,” said Courtney Munroe, vice president
of Worldwide Telecommunications at IDC. “However, using such systems
requires organizations to ensure vital services and information continue
to be accessible in the event of an emergency. The ability for
telecommunications providers to offer multiple backup solutions is
critical to meeting this need.”

Enhancing its managed router capabilities, Level 3’s wireless backup
access is now available across the U.S. for the company’s dedicated
Internet access (DIA), virtual private network (VPN) and converged
business network services. The new wireless backup solution complements
an already robust IP network with multiple diverse paths, offering Level
3 customers a comprehensive approach to service continuity and data
recovery in the event of an emergency.

“Level 3 has long been dedicated to providing business continuity
solutions that enable organizations to confidently work toward their
critical objectives knowing their service access is protected,” said
Paul Savill, senior vice president of Data, Transport and Infrastructure
Services for Level 3. “This assurance plays a vital role in growing the
digital economy, and we are delighted that the inclusion of wireless
backup into our business continuity portfolio enhances the redundancy
options for our customers.”
