announced a three-year contract with Michael Page to interconnect the company's offices and operations in Brazil and Mexico. Under the agreement, Global Crossing will provide IP VPN services, VoIP Outbound services and managed network services in Brazil and Mexico, as well as local access services in Sao Paulo, where the company's network hub for the region is located. Headquartered in London, Michael Page specializes in the placement of candidates in permanent, contract, temporary and interim positions within client companies around the world.
Available in more than 690 cities in 60 countries, Global Crossing's IP VPN service offers truly global reach. Its multiple access options, monitoring capabilities and flexible billing options simplify customers' experience by allowing them to focus on core business objectives rather than network management.
Global Crossing's VoIP Outbound service ensures that VoIP packets receive the highest priority in the network, delivering voice calls with minimal latency, packet loss and jitter -- a consistent and predictable call quality not possible with voice services based on public Internet transport. Currently, this service is available in 29 countries worldwide.
Through Global Crossing's comprehensive, end-to-end network management system, Michael Page will experience unsurpassed reliability while enjoying always-on, direct high-speed connectivity to the Internet. Michael Page will also employ Global Crossing's uCommand -- an industry-leading Web-based account and network management tool, available 24x7, which allows customers to monitor their network, create utilization reports, establish end-user and product accounts, and view monthly billing reports.
