Lumen Technologies has expanded its Network-as-a Service (NaaS) from 23 data centers to 136 across North America. Through data center partners, Lumen has extended its NaaS reach to Digital Realty and Equinix Fabric customers in several key markets, including Ashburn, Va., Atlanta, Chicago, Dallas, Los Angeles, Miami, New York/New Jersey, San Francisco, Seattle, and Toronto.
Lumen Internet On-Demand is now available to these data center customers and in Lumen on-net enabled locations.
“We’ve created a brand-new customer experience. In just a few clicks and minutes, businesses are getting an on-demand service in a simplified and differentiated way,” said Andrew Dugan, Lumen CTO. “With every new data center and on-net enabled business location, we continue to build on our vision to cloudify traditional telecom and disrupt the industry. We’re seeing customers across key verticals turning to our consumption-based Network-as-a-Service model to help solve their most pressing business challenges.”
In 2024, Lumen NaaS plans to add additional features, including port activation and automation activation. Upcoming new NaaS services will include Private IPVPN, Ethernet Cloud Connect services and security services, such as DDoS (Distributed Denial of Service) and SASE (Secure Access Service Edge).
