Allstream has launched its Managed Wide Area Network (WAN) Optimization service, allowing businesses to introduce advanced applications and services.

With the need for employees to be connected anywhere at any time and businesses updating to infrastructure models such as Cloud Computing and Virtualization, network strain continues to grow.

"Allstream's Managed WAN Optimization service delivers improved performance over our customers' business IP-MPLS networks, providing application acceleration, better bandwidth utilization and improved data protection over the WAN," said Dean Prevost, President, Allstream.

Prevost adds: "With this service our customers can focus on moving their business forward without worrying about the day-to-day network operations that can take up time and resources."

Allstream's managed service includes solution design, procurement, monitoring, maintenance and performance reports and is available to existing customers along with Allstream's growing customer base, which includes Imperial Parking Canada Corporation, Latoplast Ltd., Stahl Peterbilt, S.U.C.C.E.S.S. and Securiglobe.
