Masergy Communications Inc. has introduced its Network as a Service (NaaS) self-service option–an extension of Masergy’s Software Defined Network (SDN) platform, available via channel partners.
Masergy’s NaaS with self-service lets customers connect corporate branch offices and remote locations to their Masergy global virtual private network.
Customers can use their own Internet service provider and a Masergy-provided managed appliance to serve as the VPN endpoint, which establishes a secure connection to the nearest Masergy point of presence. Customers can also use their own endpoint device for instantaneous implementation. Masergy’s NaaS with self service is available globally at bandwidths ranging from 1Mbps to 100Mbps.
NaaS especially targets the following scenarios:
- Stop-gap solution for short-term connectivity needs
- Temporary work sites
- Retail locations
- Redundant connectivity for business continuity plans
“The introduction of NaaS with self-service represents another example of how Masergy is taking the complexity out of networks and offering customers self service provisioning, customized for individual business needs,” said Tim Naramore, CTO, Masergy. “There are no forms to fill out or sales representatives to speak with. Customers simply log into the portal and configure NaaS for any ISP, anywhere in the world.”
