Global Exchange

Overview

Today’s modern enterprise connects to an ever-growing eco-system of external partners, vendors, technologies and communities, spanning multiple geographical regions and different time zones. The ability to effectively connect and maintain access underpins operations, customer relationships, and is ever more crucial. The good news is that you don’t need to replace your entire corporate network to do so. Extend your wide area network and connect on-demand to a global community of business partners; including other enterprises, software vendors, public cloud providers and exchanges through Telstra’s Programmable Network.

Programmable Network offers you the power to identify and connect on-demand to your business partners across any of its 32 Points of Presence (PoPs). Our 32 PoPs are distributed globally and provide coverage across multiple locations, including our data centresand partner sites. The pre-laid connections mean that you can quickly create connections between your office and other sites in minutes, and start sending data between the end points.
