Masergy Communications Inc. has released its Cloud Router. Masergy is turning the vision of software defined networking (SDN) into reality with innovations that reduce costs and complexity for its enterprise customers.

Cloud Router is a full-featured managed router, complementing Masergy’s existing on-premise Managed Router solutions.  The Cloud Router can be rapidly deployed to meet customers’ changing business requirements and application performance needs. Cloud Router reduces the capital expenses of proprietary routing hardware and the administrative costs associated with managing physical routers in corporate and branch offices.

Cloud Router is offered in Standard and Advanced service levels with a Business Continuity/Disaster Recovery option available for the Advanced service. Both services support bandwidths of up to 100 Mbps. Customers can use both Cloud Router and on-premise Managed Router solutions to optimize cost and performance by location and application environment.

“It is Masergy’s heritage to innovate and create flexible solutions that reduce the complexity of running global networks,” said Tim Naramore, CTO, Masergy. “With the introduction of our Cloud Router, Masergy is uniquely positioned to help our customers cost-effectively use the latest technologies to support their specific business requirements. Expect to see additional SDN and NFV innovations in the near term.”
