Partnership allows X4 Communications to deliver Masergy’s solutions nationwide

DALLAS/ATLANTA (March 2, 2009) – Masergy, a global service provider specializing in simplifying business networks for enterprises, and X4 Communications, one of the industry’s largest Master Agencies, have announced a partnership formed to deliver Masergy’s solutions nationwide through X4 Communication’s extensive agent network.

The Masergy/X4 partnership will offer Masergy’s full product suite, including global Ethernet VPNs, video extranet, Virtual Private LAN Service (VPLS) and network-embedded management services such as Masergy Network Analyst and Service Control Center, through X4’s market service. Each Masergy circuit is embedded with five Quality-of-Service (QoS) levels, providing an easy migration path to a fully optimized and converged network solution. The partnership represents a continuation of X4’s commitment to offer the most efficient and practical solutions available nationwide.

“Masergy’s partnership with X4 Communications expands our effort to provide complete network service offerings to all enterprise locations, regardless of city, state or country,” ;said John Dumbleton, Masergy’s senior vice president of business development. “Masergy’s network solutions were created to deliver the strongest customer experience for expanding mid- size to large enterprises. By partnering with X4, we can effectively and successfully achieve that mission.”
