Swisscom and Verizon have extended a partnership that allows their respective enterprise customers to access network services overseas.

The partnership allows Swisscom business customers with multinational operations to gain access to Verizon’s global network, while Verizon customers with operations in the Swiss market are likewise able to benefit from Swisscom's local infrastructure and services.

According to the companies, this includes voice and data services, integrated networks, convergent services, security, and “comprehensive” customer services.

The partnership, first signed in 2008, has been extended for another three years.

Swisscom and Verizon are also extending the range of services available to enterprise customers, which now includes managed local area network (LAN) and wireless LAN solutions, business Wi-Fi, managed wide area network optimisation and Verizon Secure Cloud Interconnect.

Urs Lehner, Head of Marketing and Sales for Swisscom Enterprise Customers, said: “Working with Verizon, we have been able to offer our customers a strong global network and solutions portfolio, yet a single point of contact. CIOs are looking for cost effective ways to meet their increasingly complex global corporate communications requirements, and strong partnerships, such as this one, enable customers to benefit from unparalleled global service, without the need to enter into multiple service agreements.”

The companies said they are also working together with a view to deliver next-generation technologies such as software defined networking and hybrid networks to enterprise customers.

Adam Famularo, Vice President of Global Channels at Verizon, said: “The success of this alliance demonstrates how two companies can deliver better customer value by working together with a common purpose. Our joint objective is to enable our customers to do business better by more effectively delivering high performance networks and IT solutions locally, and globally.”
