Masergy uses ADVA solution to deliver intelligent Ethernet


Optical networking company, ADVA Optical, has secured a deal whereby Masergy, a global provider of secure, virtualised network services, is using its FSP 150 solution to deliver intelligent Ethernet services to its global enterprise customers.

According to Masergy VP engineering, Terry Traina, "delivering world class network services to enterprises requires access equipment that is highly reliable, flexible and efficient."

Traina said the company's customers transported 'mission-critical' information across its network 24x7, so it could not 'risk their business or our reputation on Ethernet access devices that have limited capabilities or deliver inconsistent performance.'

According to Traina, these tools are critical in the delivery of differentiated carrier-grade Ethernet services and the proactive monitoring of the network to guarantee strict service level agreements (SLAs). 'Including a range of remote operations, administration and maintenance (OAM) capabilities, the FSP 150 enables Masergy to test and resolve network issues throughout the network before they become service affecting.'

Traina said that Masergy's clients often required multiple VPN services on the same circuit to maximize network efficacy, 'so flexibility is a critical component of our service offerings.'

'That is why we use ADVA optical networking's FSP 150 to provide these rigorous global Ethernet services. The FSP 150 allows Masergy to standardize on a single access device to expedite service delivery while ensuring that we meet the strictest of SLAs."

According to ADVA'S senior vice president, North America sales, John Scherzinger, "in a highly competitive marketplace you need every possible advantage.'

"You need to know everything that's happening in your network. Most importantly, you need to know that you're exceeding your customers' expectations. The FSP 150 gives Masergy this advantage,' Scherzinger said.
