Enterprise Selects Sprint for Data Network

OVERLAND PARK, Kan. -- Enterprise Rent-A-Car has turned to Sprint to transition more than 2,000 locations from an existing satellite-based network to a new frame-relay data network. A five-year multimillion-dollar agreement between the companies has set the stage for a significant network overhaul at Enterprise.

Already, more than 200 sites have been switched to a Sprint network that combines frame relay services and high-speed asynchronous transfer mode (ATM) technology. Enterprise expects to transition the company's entire network away from its existing satellite-based service in the next 12 to 24 months.

"We have included Sprint in our network transition because it offered the right combination of people, technology and competitive pricing as we undergo this important initiative," said Mike Preuss, assistant vice president for Enterprise Rent-A-Car.
