Hexcel selects Level 3 Communications for IP VPN and colocation services
Sep 11, 2013 (MarketLine via COMTEX) --
Level 3 Communications, Inc., a provider of communications services, has announced that Hexcel Corporation, a manufacturer of composites, has selected Level 3's internet protocol virtual private network, or IP VPN, and colocation services to support its expansion.
Level 3's Ethernet IP VPN will reportedly replace legacy frame relay switched connections, driving cost-efficiencies and adding extra capacity while allowing for the prioritisation of traffic using MPLS (multiprotocol label switching). In addition, operating on Level 3's end-to-end global IP network provides Hexcel with streamlined vendor management and procurement processes, as well as increased security by providing enhanced control of data.
Hexcel has also selected Level 3's new European data centre in Hayes, UK, for colocation services. This will provide crucial redundancy facilities, allowing its mission-critical services to remain online in the event of any outages and providing significant efficiency and cost-benefits, said Level 3 Communications.
"The innovative global projects that Hexcel Corporation is involved in rely on network services for fast and secure manufacturing across multiple sites and geographies," said Tim Passingham, Level 3's senior vice president of EMEA Enterprise Business. "Our global network and associated services are designed for fast-growing companies like Hexcel Corporation that want to ensure a collaborative working environment, as well as scalable and secure growth worldwide."
