DALLAS (May 22, 2006) — Masergy, a global service provider specializing in simplifying business networks for enterprises, offers industry expertise and a customer perspective regarding the business value of network simplification in a Webinar hosted by Network World at http://www.networkworld.com/whitepapers/abstract.jsp?id=70460.
“The Masergy Webinar is structured to address network challenges that corporations face everyday, as well as the strategies and solutions they need to get the most out of their wide area network (WAN),” said Terri Compton, Masergy’s senior vice president of sales and marketing. “We are letting the corporate world know that their WAN can be part of the solution, rather than part of the problem.”
The Webinar, moderated by Sandra Gittlen, a technology editor of Network World, focuses on some common issues enterprises face today, including how to keep pace with the growing demands of the complex WAN/LAN application environment and maintaining the daily needs of network management.
David Novotny, the vice president of sales at Masergy, also addresses how to optimize a WAN environment considering the demand for higher data applications that often are combined with real time applications like voice and video. The Webinar takes a closer look at outsourcing versus out-tasking, as well as at industry concerns such as the security implications of mixing Internet access with private network circuits.
Another benefit to the Webinar is a customer perspective delivered by David Erwin, CIO of Adams and Reese LLP, a multidisciplinary, full-service law firm with nine offices across the South Central United States. Erwin discusses disaster recovery and other ”lessons-learned” from his experience from having offices in the path of Hurricane Katrina in 2005. He shares how Masergy helped the law firm simplify its networking by deploying an MPLS network, replacing impacted parts of the law firm’s point-to- point corporate WAN in ten days.
As part of the Webinar, Masergy offers a white paper written by Steven Wiess at www.masergy.com to provide additional information about ways to simplify enterprise network management.
