Coming in Baskin-Robbins like 31 flavor fashion, SD-WAN is surging. This flexible, future-forward technology is driving a new day in networking and opening the doors to the cloud era, fueling our SaaSy business reality. SD-WAN is no passing fad. And a growing phenomenon is the selection of managed SD-WAN solutions, allowing IT to worry about more pressing projects.

Masergy announced the addition of Intelligent Service Control with Global Bandwidth (News - Alert) on Demand for Managed SD-WAN. Managed SD-WAN Users can access the ability to turn up or down bandwidth by location via user portal.

Mike Sapien, VP and Chief Analyst at Ovum (News - Alert) explained  “The Masergy Global Bandwidth on Demand solution provides the ability to not only increase public network bandwidth dynamically in real time or at predetermined times, but also provides customers reliable business continuity if either private or public networks fail."

The service enables real time flexibility for hybrid network customers, allowing for the expected levels of application performance.  Whether it’s for video conferencing, multi-site data back-up or disaster recovery, customers can select when the additional bandwidth is needed, and will only be billed for the spike in bandwidth.

"The one certainty today in enterprise information technology is rapid change," said Chris MacFarland (News - Alert), CEO, Masergy. "As the complexity of the enterprise application environment increases, IT professionals are turning to software defined hybrid networks to deliver superior user application experiences. This enhancement gives IT professionals complete control of their global hybrid networks, regardless of the access methodology, by extending our patented service control capabilities to our fully integrated Managed SD-WAN solution."

Masergy is maneuvering to solidify its managed SD-WAN, a smart move in an era of innovation.
