DALLAS -- MASERGY, a privately held global network service provider that has redefined enterprise wide-area networking by delivering innovative products, advanced capabilities and a superior customer experience, today launched its new Limited Plane as its sixth class of service (CoS).

The Limited Plane is serviced at a lower priority than Normal Data and is ideal for data back-up or packet-loss-tolerant applications, such as Scalable Video Coding (SVC) desktop video implementation. By delivering a new Limited Plane CoS that is deliberately de-prioritized below best effort, MASERGY can provide its customers a safe place on the network to carry large-scale desktop video flows or data back-up without fear of high volumes overwhelming other network traffic.

The overall advantage of the Limited Plane is that delay-tolerant desktop video or data back-up applications can be placed on an enterprise’s private MPLS network to maintain security, at the same time leveraging QoS mechanisms that allow optimal large-scale communications while protecting corporate or public Internet applications.

“MASERGY’s network is purpose-built for the transport of real-time applications over the corporate WAN and we offer industry-leading SLAs of 100 percent in-sequence packet delivery for telepresence/HD video conferencing. The Limited Plane augments our diverse and well-defined array of CoS offerings, allowing our customers to experience an enhanced level of flexibility to accommodate wide-scale deployment of packet loss tolerant SVC desktop video applications,” said Tim Naramore, chief technology officer of MASERGY.
