BASKING RIDGE, NJ — Verizon Wireless, builder and operator of the nation’s most reliable wireless voice and data network, today announced the addition of Static IP (Internet Protocol) addressing to the Verizon Wireless Private Network. Verizon Wireless Private Network is an enterprise solution that lets customers communicate more securely and consistently with their wireless devices by using a combination of Private IP addressing and dedicated connectivity. The new Private Network Static IP feature gives enterprise and government customers enhanced administrative control over employees’ access by allowing them to assign a unique IP address to identify each mobile device accessing the network.

Enterprise and government customers can easily administer their wireless workforce IP policies and reinforce corporate security by adding a fixed block of wireless IP addresses to their corporate firewall. By using Static IP on the Verizon Wireless Private Network, enterprise customers can request data on demand from a specific device such as a wireless router whenever and wherever needed.

Perfect for enterprises with a mobile workforce needing to access and send sensitive information via a wireless router, embedded laptop or mobile Internet device such as a smartphone, Verizon Wireless Private Network enhances the protection and reliability of wireless data transmission by avoiding the security risks associated with the public Internet. Companies operating business-critical wireless applications, such as telemetry-based applications or ATM transactions, benefit from enhanced security through encrypted traffic. Enterprise customers must use their existing authentication, authorization and accounting (AAA) server or purchase any AAA server that supports the standards-based messaging that is required by Verizon Wireless AAA Certification.

The Verizon Wireless Private Network with Static IP for mobile devices can be set up for a one-time fee of $500.00 and is compatible with Verizon Wireless PC cards, wireless routers, embedded laptops or mobile Internet devices, including smartphones. To learn more about the Verizon Wireless Private Network with Static IP and other offerings for enterprise businesses, customers can contact their Verizon Wireless Enterprise Data Sales Representative at 1-800-VZW-4BIZ or their Verizon Business Representative.
