Masergy Debuts Performance Edge Service for Internet Transport

Masergy, which provides a SDN (software-defined network) and cloud-based platform for the digital enterprise, announced the Performance Edge. This service is designed to provide SD-WAN (software-defined wide area network) and SASE (secure access service edge) capabilities to address broadband internet transport. The offering specifically minimizes packet loss over public broadband connections to allow them to perform as if a private Ethernet circuit.

Performance Edge is available with Masergy’s Managed SD-WAN Secure and SASE offerings, and uses proprietary network architecture and routing algorithms to help businesses increase productivity.

“Masergy is working to ensure our clients’ new need for broadband doesn’t impact their business continuity. Remote work success shouldn’t hinge on network connectivity types,” said Masergy CEO, Chris MacFarland, “and we’ve created Masergy Performance Edge to make sure it doesn’t.”
