MCI EXPANDS VNET INTERNATIONAL TO MEXICO
MCI EXPANDS VNET INTERNATIONAL TO MEXICO ACAPULCO, Mexico, April 6 /PRNewswire/ -- MCI International, a
subsidiary of MCI Communications Corporation (MCI), will expand its virtual network service, MCI Vnet, to Mexico. MCI Vnet will be connected to Red Express, the virtual network service of Telefonos de Mexico (TelMex). This brings the number of operating and announced MCI Vnet virtual network connections to 15.
In Mexico, Red Express enables multi-location TelMex customers to establish private 5-digit dialing plans for use domestically and internationally. TelMex has implemented a special network to ensure premium quality to its customers. The network is accessible via dedicated facilities between the customer location and the nearest long distance central office. Red Express will also be available to customers with dedicated access to the Red Digital Integrada, the recently completed digital overlay network TelMex has established for high volume business clients in Mexico. Full commercial service between MCI Vnet and TelMex Red Express is expected to begin in the third quarter of 1992. "MCI is a leading provider of international virtual private network service," said Seth Blumenfeld, president of MCI International. "The expansion of MCI's International Vnet service to Mexico offers U.S.- Mexican business the state-of-the-art, flexible services which will enhance the telecommunications options with one of MCI's and the United States' largest telecommunications partners. MCI was the first U.S. carrier to install digital fiber optic cable with Mexico and our digital private line service with Mexico offers U.S.-Mexico business the services it needs to expand business relations between Mexico and the U.S." MCI's Vnet is a software-defined virtual private network that provides voice, facsimile, and data transport on MCI's 100 percent digital public switched network. Vnet's wide spectrum of features support a variety of sophisticated user applications including cost control, intra-company communications, and network management. Vnet's centralized intelligence, redundancy, and coverage of all access methods make it a powerful replacement for, or enhancement to, private network facilities. In addition, users receive management, control, and visibility capabilities superior to those offered by private networks. Because Vnet is a switched service that traverses the public network, these benefits are available to Vnet users at lower cost than private networks. Since its introduction in 1986, Vnet has become the virtual network choice of many of the largest corporations in the United States. MCI offers a full range of domestic and international communications services. In addition to International Vnet, services include Global Communications Service (GCS), worldwide direct dialing to 180 countries and places, International 800 Service, MCI Call USA, telex, facsimile, electronic mail, packet switching, private voice and data networks, and television transmission. MCI's 64 subsidiary and representative offices in 53 countries, Guam and Puerto Rico are positioned to support the full range of global telecommunications services. -0- 4/6/92 /CONTACT: Jane Levene of MCI International, 914-934-6480/ (MCIC) CO: MCI International, Inc.
