Sprint Launches Data Link and Static IP on its 4G LTE Network

09:00 EDT Tuesday, April 23, 2013

OVERLAND PARK, Kan. (Business Wire) -- Sprint (NYSE: S) today announced that Sprint Data Link™ and Static IP networking services now operate over the Sprint 4G LTE network. Both products are compatible with 3G as well as 4G, and include upgrades that make it easier for businesses and government agencies to deploy, manage and extend an enterprise network to modems, tablets and handsets.

Sprint Data Link enables business networks to reach beyond the limits of a corporate enterprise WAN. Sprint Data Link provides mobile employees and connected devices with access to their mission-critical business information over a private wireless network, separate from the public Internet.

Sprint Data Link comes with a 99.9% availability service level agreement (SLA) and is supported on a vast array of 3G- and 4G-capable devices including handsets, tablets, laptops, mobile broadband cards, hotspots and M2M embedded modems. Uses range from setting up retail kiosks, seasonal storefronts, temporary offices, lottery terminals and wireline backup to remote monitoring and home healthcare.

Sprint Static IP assigns the same IP address to a device each time that device authenticates and accesses the Internet. It allows companies to more easily manage remote wireless devices including M2M applications, handsets and tablets. Sprint provides businesses with the ability to purchase a contiguous, sequential range or block of IP addresses, which can ease the deployment of devices and simplicity of firewall configuration.

“Sprint Data Link and Static IP provide businesses with highly effective tools to deploy and manage wireless devices,” said John Dupree-senior vice president of business sales, Sprint. “We are well-positioned to meet the demand for reliable, secure mobile data as our business customers take advantage of new technology, chipsets, devices and applications.”

Sprint Network Vision

To support the growing need for data, Sprint is rolling out a new 3G/4G network designed to provide faster data speeds, improved quality and easier connectivity. Sprint introduced its all-new 4G LTE network in July 2012 and now offers service in 88 markets. Sprint expects customers to benefit with better wireless signal strength, in-building coverage and fewer drops/blocks. In addition, Sprint smartphone customers also benefit from Truly Unlimited℠ data, text and calling to any mobile with no metering, no throttling, and no overages, all while on the Sprint network.
