Level 3 Communications Announces Agreement with Biosidus

Level 3 Communications, Inc. has announced an agreement and case study with Biosidus. This project required installation of videoconference rooms to connect operational plants in Bernal to production facilities in Almagro and to the new headquarter offices in Buenos Aires. Biosidus's previous communication technology was obsolete and the company needed an overhaul. The new headquarters configuration was the catalyst to create a simple and accessible communication solution for multiple devices at locations around the globe that enabled access from both public and private networks. Level 3's Enhanced Video Collaboration (EVC) was the solution of choice. In addition, Biosidus added a videoconference solution using Polycom equipment for four physical rooms that connected the plant locations of Almagro and Bernal with two rooms at the Munro facility. Multiple devices were integrated through the private network (MPLS), with collaborative access and a virtual videoconference room.

Level 3 Communications, Inc. Launches Carrier Neutral Secure Cellular Service

Level 3 Communications, Inc. is launching a new product, Level 3 Secure Access Cellular Service, that uses both cellular and security technologies to provide a redundant and scalable option for Internet connectivity. This product is useful to businesses on two fronts. First, it supplies redundancy for business continuity capabilities. Second, it enables enterprise customers to take advantage of on-demand economy opportunities like rapid network connectivity deployment for site expansions and pop-up stores for retailers. Product information: Level 3 Secure Access Cellular uses multi-vendor cellular connectivity to provide customers a back-up network connection for remote or branch locations, if a customer's normal fiber connection is disrupted; If a disruption occurs, the solution is designed to switch from a dedicated Level 3 MPLS/IP Virtual Private Network (VPN) connection to cellular backup connectivity through a LTE network. This cellular backup, the Secure Access Site product tunnel (IPsec), runs over a cellular 3G or 4G network instead of a broadband or DSL connection.
