Transcription

Male voiceover: What if you put a thin metal filling inside a glass vacuum and ran a current through it?
That works.
What if you put a bunch of actual rocket scientists in a room and told them shoot for the moon?
That works.
What if you created a lens so small you could place it in your eye to improve your vision?
That works.
Suppose we created a local to global IP network so seamless and transparent you could quickly see how to better manage opportunities and prevent threats
Suppose you had the latest wireless technology
Suppose it all came with people
People who understand that capability goes hand and hand with accountability
Verizon has joined with MCI to form verizonbusiness
To make your business more successful and your life a little easier
That works
Introducing verizonbusiness
