UUNet to Announce Dial-up Program for the Enterprise

UUNet (www.us.uu.net) will announce a major component of its VPN Alliance Program later today, called UUdial Corporate. According to Janet Brumfield, a company spokesperson, UUdial Corporate will be the base dial-in service to the Alliance, which will offer managed components and linked services for corporate customers.

The first component of UUdial was announced in March as a service for ISPs, called UUdial VIP, or Virtual Internet Provider. This new service, UUdial Corporate, gives midrange and enterprise access to the thousands of UUNet modems across the world, which can link them to their corporate intranet.

Brumfield says corporate data centers are becoming their own ISPs in a sense, and this type of service can offload that work. Customers can choose the base service or add on features such as security.

UUNet, a division of MCI WorldCom, announced last month its corporate program for hosting business applications called UUsecure VPN. Brumfield says this service, as well as UUdial Corporate, will begin to offer Service Level Agreements later this summer. -- Brian Ploskina
