Ilissa Miller, CEO, iMiller Public Relations, says:

Technology will always play a large role in the success or failure in the current professional world, increasing solutions and support that empower organizations to be productive.  Although, since there is a high demand for integrated technology solutions and technology is becoming more sophisticated, networks that support these demands need to lead the way.

Identifying that there is a need for integrated technology solutions, Pacnet is a leading provider of integrated technology solutions in the Asia-Pacific region.  They currently have an extension of their award-winning Pacnet Enabled Network (PEN) within the optical layer.  They also provide on-demand provisioning of network services up to 100G including Network Function Virtualization (NFV) tools on the companies privately owned trans-Pacific and intra-Asia submarine network systems.

Pacnet is using PEN, which is a Software-defined Networking (SDN) platform supporting on-demand bandwidth delivery via its customer portal or simple public application-programming interface (API).  By using the latest software, Pacnet extends network virtualization to the subsea transport network, enabling high-speed capacity provisioning and automated fault restoration across its network systems.  Collectively with its virtual appliances, PEN gives customers the power to orchestrate applications across multiple countries simultaneously, delivering cost-efficient virtualized network resources that customers can order and consume on demand.

“Pacnet continues to shape the adoption of SDN and NFV technologies through our continuous efforts to improve and enhance our fully-automated network provisioning platform, bringing the cloud experience to all layers of network,” says Jim Fagan, President of Managed Services at Pacnet.  “The journey from launching PEN 16 months ago to enhancing its capabilities with NFV and extending the service to the optical layer marks a significant milestone for the company and the industry.  We committed to our customers that we would build an automated network platform that can be tailored to their specific needs and we are keeping that promise.”

Pacnet is taking integrated technology solutions to yet another optical layer by using the PEN platform because it delivers automated connectivity to external private and public cloud providers.  This enables customers to easily create their hybrid cloud deployment via an intuitive drag-and-drop function on the platform with greater control and flexibility when provisioning between their data center and network.

The use of the PEN platform gives customers an easy-to-use platform to automate flows, enable Direct Internet Access (DIA) and virtual appliances and to choose their preferred billing methods.  PEN also provides users with added flexibility and granularity, which is based on customer-determined network topology including design, bandwidth allocation, DIA endpoints and latency, while providing a complete range of performance characteristic options.
