The Pacnet Enabled Network debuted earlier this month during the OpenStack Summit held in Hong Kong. In a video interview, Jim Fagan, president of managed services at Pacnet, explained what the new service is all about and how it could revolutionize the way organizations consume networking services.
Fagan said that Pacnet’s carrier assets allow it to deliver networking as a service. He explained that the Pacnet Enabled Network is a fully provisioned point-to-point network that enables the provisioning of enterprise-grade private connectivity. Pacnet is leveraging the OpenFlow SDN protocol as an enabler for building out its network as a service offering.
