Ingenico Group has tapped Masergy to provide it with SD-WAN services. This is just another proof point that SD-WAN is hot and getting hotter.

That’s why Technology Marketing Corp., the host of this TMCnet community, has launched the SD-WAN Conference & Expo. This event will take place Feb. 14 and 16 in Fort Lauderdale, Fl. For more information, vist:

“We ran a four-month RFP to equip our global estate of 88 sites with a managed SD-WAN solution,” said Ingenico Group CIO Jean-Marc Voelckel. “We investigated all major operators and vendors available and decided to partner with Masergy because of the maturity of its SD-WAN service offering, global implementation expertise, and personalized technical support.”

Masergy is a managed services provider. Ingenico is a company based in Paris that offers in-store and online payment services that are used by 250,000 merchants. 

“SD-WAN can make your network more agile with centralized control and management. A managed SD-WAN solution lets organizations more rapidly deploy new sites, optimize application performance and support bandwidth-hungry applications,” said Masergy CTO Tim Naramore (News - Alert). “We are proud that Ingenico chose to partner with us for the deployment of our fully managed solution. It’s proof that unlike many of our competitors, Masergy SD-WAN is ready and able to tackle the real, large-scale deployments that global enterprises, such as Ingenico, need.”

Gartner (News - Alert) recently said “Masergy is a comparatively smaller, but fast-growing, provider of enterprise network services that uses a software-defined-platform-based approach to delivering network services. This made it one of the earliest providers to deliver SDN, NFV and vCPE globally.... Masergy should be considered by organizations requiring network services in the major economies globally.”
