Sprint unveils 4G Enterprise WAN for U.S. enterprises


Sprint, a leading telecom service provider in the U.S.,

announced the launch of Sprint 4G Enterprise WAN, a fixed wireless access
solution, that offers speed, reliability and secure wireless connectivity to
the Sprint Global MPLS network.

Sprint 4G can enable businesses to replace
or improve on traditional “wired” options with a solution that is
cost-effective, fast and flexible to deploy without compromising bandwidth and
network reliability, available within all Sprint 4G markets.


Sprint understands the critical challenges facing
businesses today, which demand innovative solutions to address higher bandwidth
needs, business continuity, and cost reduction in a recovering economy,” said
Tom Roberts, vice president of business marketing, Sprint.


With 4G Enterprise WAN, Sprint delivers customers
increased flexibility for their branch locations or retail operations through
high-speed wireless connectivity and more built-in reliability than typical
wireline – creating a real competitive advantage for their business,” Roberts

Using professionally installed business-class outdoor
modems, Sprint 4G Enterprise WAN provides secure 4G and 3G wireless access as primary and
secondary network connectivity, backed by a 99.95 percent availability service
level agreement (SLA).


With faster time-to-deployment, 15 business days in
contrast to the often lengthy process of ordering traditional wireline
circuits, Sprint 4G Enterprise WAN is an alternative to the traditional T-1, or
a whole new way to bring data connectivity to remote locations where the
installation of traditional dedicated circuits is problematic.

Explorer Pipeline, operator of a 1,900-mile fuel pipeline
from the Gulf Coast to the Midwest, is an early user of Sprint 4G Enterprise
WAN at its storage facility in Houston. Senior Network Engineer Greg
Wagnon says the ease of the installation was incredible” and that the 4G
solution has immediately improved the productivity of technicians at the site.

“They get the data they need from the Internet and
the corporate office to go out and do their work. They spend less time waiting
for the information they want and more time doing work on the pipeline. I see a
direct increase in productivity,” Wagnon said.

Wagnon estimates the cost savings for this single site at
$4,500 per year over a T-1, and anticipates deploying another site immediately,
eventually rolling to as many as two dozen locations.

With unlimited 4G usage, average download speeds of 3-6
Mbps (peak speeds of over 10 Mbps) and peak upload speeds of 2.5 Mbps, Sprint
4G Enterprise WAN is ideal for many business situations that simply need a
robust data connection.
