Virtual Network Services



Simplify your network.

Virtual Network Services

Network needs are constantly evolving, but it can be complex and costly to deploy and manage traditional network solutions. You often need different devices from different vendors to cover individual functions. With Virtual Network Services from Verizon, you address the problems of disparate devices, applications and configuration models in your ecosystem, while controlling costs and responding quickly to changing needs.

Meet the new enterprise network solution.

Virtual Network Services lets you leave behind the old labor-intensive, slow-to-deploy and complex mix of devices, technologies and configuration models. Instead, you can move toward an agile, resilient and fluid service delivery model that quickly and easily changes to help you capitalize on new opportunities in automation, analytics and customer engagement. Our solution provides a scalable, fully managed platform that integrates with a portfolio of technologies from industry-leading providers.

Create a competitive edge with an application-driven network.

As part of our Software Defined Networking product suite, Virtual Network Services turns your physical network into an on-demand virtual network. That helps simplify management and control capital expense while increasing business agility, scalability and responsiveness. That means you can:

  • Deploy services and updates in days, hours or even minutes.
  • React automatically to spikes in demand, and quickly scale to meet evolving service deployments with rules-based management.
  • Easily budget and manage costs through an operational expense model.
  • Maintain agility and innovation by eliminating vendor lock-in.
  • Decrease risk as you test, innovate and evolve new services.
  • Create more intelligent network solutions, with enhanced routing, easier management and greater flexibility.

Get the flexibility your business needs.
