DALLAS and LONDON (January 9, 2006) – Masergy, a global service provider specializing in real-time application performance across converged enterprise networks, introduces Network Analyst; a comprehensive, service-embedded wide-area network (WAN) traffic analysis service for enterprises capitalizing on their existing Masergy MPLS solutions.

Built by Masergy utilizing underlying technology from Alcatel, the Network Analyst service simplifies and tracks application performance and data streams flowing anywhere across a company’s WAN.

“With this launch, Masergy continues its commitment to deliver advanced tools and services that simplify enterprise networking,” said Terri Compton, senior vice president of sales and marketing for Masergy. “Companies want technologies that work for them—not against them—to improve business performance while reducing costs. Network Analyst takes WAN management to the next level, maximizing the productivity and efficiency of the enterprise.”

Embedded in the virtual private network (VPN), the Network Analyst service eliminates the need for software, hardware, integration, validation or maintenance on the part of the enterprise. Through the simplicity of a Web-based service portal, network managers can have instant availability to the service – as soon as the business starts running network traffic across the circuit.

The Network Analyst service also gives businesses with multiple sites a more comprehensive, detailed and cost-effective view of network activity and application performance without the costly expense of an overlay network solution, which tends to increase latency and reduce available bandwidth.

“The proliferation of branch offices is changing monitoring requirements for enterprise networks,” says Robin Gareiss, executive vice president of Nemertes Research. “Tools that are sophisticated and cost-effective—yet easy to deploy and use—are becoming vital. By embedding such tools in its WAN service, Masergy is addressing these needs in an innovative way.”

The scalable network management tool is convenient and secure, allowing managers to get a granular view of their network traffic by application, protocol, port, QoS level and IP address. The service also gives network managers the flexibility to define and produce detailed graphical reports for any or all circuits, as well as facilitates long-term network planning by assessing the impact of adding new users and applications to the existing network.
