BASKING RIDGE, N.J. and CHICAGO, Jan. 19, 2021 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Verizon Business announced today that it will deliver managed network services, network as a service (NaaS), to more than 450 HUB offices throughout the US and Canada. By transforming its current infrastructure into a multi-use network managed by Verizon Business, HUB may see improved speed, capacity, and flexibility, helping employees work more seamlessly, while also enabling HUB to better manage the rapid growth of its business.
