JANUARY 28, 2011 -- Level 3 Communications, Inc. (NASDAQ: LVLT) says that it will bring the Dedicated Internet Access (DIA) and virtual private network (VPN) service portfolios now offered in North America to several European markets, including France, Germany, and the United Kingdom.

The DIA service is designed to give enterprise customers the most direct route to Level 3’s Tier 1 backbone fiber-optic network for Internet access. It is complemented by the VPN portfolio, which offers several services for high-performance wide area networking (WAN).

Level 3 describes the service combination as “an ideal and easily integrated solution set” for enterprise customers who already use the company’s colocation or low-latency transport services as well as businesses that don’t currently operate their own autonomous system (AS) network.

“As one of the world’s largest and most broadly connected Internet backbones, Level 3 has the international reach to connect businesses to many places through a single provider,” said James Heard, president of European Markets at Level 3. “Just as importantly, the fact that we own and operate our network gives us the power to control, scale and optimize our services for customers every step of the way, allowing us to provide the flexibility that our Enterprise customers demand.”
