Megaport announces the release of Megaport App for Microsoft Windows Phone 8.1, becoming the first elastic connectivity platform to provide accessibility over all three major mobile platforms.

Megaport, a leading provider of elastic interconnection services, today launches its Megaport app for Microsoft Windows Phone 8.1, completing the development of the first version of the Megaport App across all three major mobile platforms.

The Megaport App allows Megaport customers to remotely order, provision and manage Virtual Cross Connects (VXC) between themselves and over 100 Service Providers on the Megaport Elastic Connectivity Platform in real-time at speeds from 1Mbps to 10,000Mpbs.

Megaport customers selecting the Microsoft Windows Phone 8.1 app will also gain access to the self-service portal to manage administrative tasks including creating service tickets, adding service groups, managing their network and account billing. Users can create VXCs to anyone on the Megaport fabric, anywhere, at any time, thanks to the complete range of mobile apps now on offer.

Developed in-house, the app leverages the secure RESTful API server that sits at the heart of the Megaport infrastructure, enabling Megaport’s partners to seamlessly integrate their web, mobile and B2B systems using familiar and well-supported technologies.

The decision to go with native apps for all Megaport platforms reflects its goal to provide customers with the best possible experience in all aspects of their interactions. Supporting a wide range of platforms demonstrates the Megaport philosophy of being independent, neutral and inclusive.

Megaport CEO and Founder, Bevan Slattery said: “Launching the complete suite of applications was always our goal to provide Megaport customers with the power to take complete control of their networks. The addition of Microsoft Window 8.1 meets customer demand and is a crucial milestone for Megaport’s growth”.

The Megaportal app is available today in the Windows Phone Store, Google Play and the Apple App Store.
