Put agility back into your network
Digital transformation is driving the demand for greater agility in networks that support businesses to deliver superior customer experiences much faster than ever before. More and more, customers are leveraging cloud-based applications in their organisations, but these are often bandwidth intensive, and put undue pressure onto networks. How do you cater for these growing demands, especially when changes at this scale require intensive effort? How do you put agility back into your network so digital transformation can succeed?
Traditional WAN architectures have been complex and static, relying on physical network hardware with configurations required at customer sites. Thus making them time-consuming and costly to manage.
Now you can achieve more business agility and enable digitisation, using Telstra Managed SD-WAN.

Managed SD-WAN allows WAN traffic to be securely distributed over most carrier service offerings, including IPVPN and broadband. This allows you to route your traffic through the most efficient channel without sacrificing application performance.
Security is essential when private WAN traffic is delivered through public channels such as the Internet. With Managed SD-WAN, strong encryption techniques and strict access controls are used to help protect your WAN traffic and communication with cloud applications, remote offices or data centres, over both the public Internet and private IPVPN circuits.
Managed SD-WAN dynamically forwards data packets by looking at the application type, performance, policies and path status. By monitoring the network performance for jitter, packet loss and latency, you can tune the network for business-critical services, and applications can be sent over the best-performing path based on policies. Traffic is load balanced to maximise all available WAN bandwidth.
Reduce complexity and achieve faster WAN deployment and management with centralised control. This feature also provides greater visibility (including application traffic, bandwidth usage and device statistics) into your network.
Improve the experience you provide staff and customers by enhancing the performance of your applications, whether they are hosted on-site or data centre. With more applications moving to the cloud, SD-WAN facilitates the most direct route for them. Time-sensitive applications such as voice and video can be routed over IPVPN while important SaaS applications such as Office 365 and Salesforcecan be directed over the internet to utilise your WAN more efficiently.
Keep business running with a flexible and redundant hybrid network across multiple links and different access types.
Depending on your policy setup, if performance on one link is hampered, traffic can be automatically routed to the next best performing and available path, so your business can keep running without any disruption.And with us managing the performance of the multiple links at the branch, we can take action on the Telstra-owned network underlays to resolve connectivity issues.
Keep pace with the increasing and constantly changing demands from your users on your WAN. Get more value out of your available bandwidth through more efficient use of your connectivity. And get insights of what applications are running in your WAN, and the bandwidth they’re using, so you can allocate resources and prioritise traffic as required.
Centralised policy control reduces complexity and supports faster WAN deployment and management.
With this greater visibility into the network and being able to roll out network configuration changes quickly rather than site-by-site manual configuration, it also opens up greater risk of changes that negatively impact the network. An experienced managed services provider in SDN can assess the impacts of the proposed changes and reduce the risk of network outages
We help you get the most from SD-WAN by partnering with you, through our SDN engineering specialists, to understand your requirements and integrating SD-WAN solutions as part of a broader ICT infrastructure to help you achieve your business goals.
Moving branch traffic off private networks and onto the internet can open up vulnerabilities. SD-WAN offers centralised security policies to simplify protection. That's backed by comprehensive security embedded in the SD WAN architecture, and if you choose a further option you can be supported by 24/7 monitoring via our Global Security Operations Centre and get the latest global threat intelligence.
