MASERGY employs Overture's ISG edge product to address virtual service opportunities

MASERGY, a competitive global network provider, is employing Overture Networks' carrier Ethernet edge ISG products to expand its set of virtual network offerings to MNC customers.

Set on providing services to multi-location MNCs, all of which have a need for real-time global services, MASERGY will leverage the ISG products to combine all of its customers' disparate access technologies into a simple Ethernet connection.

MASERGY said that by leveraging the Overture ISG products, it can complement its own on-net fiber building locations by targeting off-net locations where it does not currently have a fiber connection by leveraging a carrier partner's available access facilities (T1/E1, DS3 and SONET/SDH).

Regardless of whether the customer resides on-net or off-net, customers will expect that MASERGY will meet its agreed upon QoS and CoS metrics. To maintain that goal, MASERGY can also leverage Overture's built-in performance monitoring tools to gain visibility into both their on-net and off-net network operations.
