Masergy Communications Inc. announced that UK-based Eurostar has selected the company’s Hybrid Networking and Managed Security solutions to facilitate the high-speed railway’s digital transformation initiatives for customer-facing transactions.
Eurostar operates high-speed train service linking the Great Britain to France and Belgium via the Channel Tunnel. The service carries more than 10 million passengers a year with routes to Paris, Brussels, Lille, and other destinations.
