One of our carrier partners, Paetec announced Monday the general availability of its new managed network Intrusion Detection and Prevention System (IDPS) for customers of its MPLS services. Since IDPS resides within PAETEC’s MPLS network, there is no need for on-site equipment installation or upgrades and the product protects all sites on the network, not just one. This follows a major trend in MPLS Networks of carriers offering more services in the cloud. Network based Firewall, Hosted VoIP and Spam Filtering are other solutions that are available as optional services on a MPLS Network. Telco iQ can assist you with MPLS quotes from leading providers like Paetec, AT&T, Qwest, Verizon, Time Warner, and XO.
