Masergy Picks Overture
RESEARCH TRIANGLE PARK, N.C. -- Overture Networks, the industry’s trusted Carrier Ethernet solutions provider, today announced that MASERGY, a global network service provider headquartered in Plano, Texas, has selected Overture Networks’ award-winning Carrier Ethernet edge solutions to deliver its virtualized network solutions to the company’s base of large enterprise clients around the world.
MASERGY operates a purpose-built MPLS/IP network from which it hosts a variety of demanding enterprise customers that require real-time, mission-critical network communications on a global basis. Because MASERGY’s enterprise customers have complex needs across multiple locations, the service provider’s product set virtualizes disparate communications access technologies into a simple Ethernet connection. In this way, MASERGY is accomplishing for the WAN what cloud computing providers are attempting to do in the data center.
Overture Networks’ ISG family of edge products helps service providers such as MASERGY reach all of their customers’ locations with premium Ethernet and IP services regardless of available access technology. For example, Overture’s solutions allow MASERGY to take advantage of universally available T1/E1, DS3 and SONET/SDH circuits to complement dedicated fiber access and quickly turn up services in new business locations. In addition, Overture’s powerful, built-in performance monitoring tools give service providers visibility into their network operation, and allow them to offer performance guarantees backed up by real-time data.
“As we moved to enhance our service differentiation capabilities, increase our service offerings and upgrade our network, we considered several alternatives before selecting Overture’s ISG edge solutions,” said Tim Naramore, chief technology officer, at MASERGY. “Because of the carrier-class feature set and operational simplicity of its solutions, Overture offers the necessary tools to bring our virtualized network solutions to any location. Through our evaluation process, we came to trust Overture as a partner that shares our commitment to ensuring high-quality Ethernet that can deliver our reliable and comprehensive virtualized network solutions.”
