Verizon Launches Private Network Traffic Management Solution for Enterprise Apps and IoT

by Istvan Fekete on September 25, 2015

Verizon has announced a new offering for businesses and government users that will allow them to prioritize different enterprise and IoT (Internet of Things) applications.

The solution, dubbed as Private Network Traffic Management, is the first of its kind in the US, and will be a subscription-based service available only to Verizon Private Network customers. It can be added to select Verizon Private Network LTE devices for a monthly, per-user fee, depending on the service-level option selected. The service levels feature a “mission critical” traffic management class, which Verizon says is ideal for applications such as video and VoIP.

Included services:

– Premium & Enhanced: Available to all Verizon Private Network customers, the Premium and Enhanced service level options allow customers to allocate portions of their 4G LTE connection, in correlation with the selected subscription, for sending mission critical applications.

– Public Safety: Data applications traversing this top-tier service level exclusively available to Public Safety customers who subscribe to the Verizon Private Network, including Emergency Services or other first responders, will receive the highest transmission priority to enable critical communications to reach their destination quickly.

“The value proposition of Verizon’s latest offering for organizations is quite dramatic,” said Kathryn Weldon, principal analyst for Enterprise Mobility with Current Analysis. “Since the advent of 4G LTE wireless networks, we haven’t seen anything like this which allows customers to prioritize their business critical applications over classes of service from their mobile devices. In addition, the seamless integration of Verizon’s private wireless network with the company’s global IP private wireline network extends the enterprise to a wireless environment, offering significant benefits for leveraging the Internet of Things and other mobility initiatives.”

The private network offering serves as a building block for Internet of Things applications and “mobile first” apps. It will work over the carrier’s wireless network and global private IP wireline network, and will also integrate with cloud service providers via Verizon Secure Cloud Interconnect.
