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 faster than ever before. Lately, customers are leveraging cloud-based applications in their organisations, which 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, making them time-consuming and costly to manage.
Now you can achieve more business agility and enable digitisation, using Telstra Managed SD-WAN.
What is SD-WAN and what does it do?
A centralised software controller for better network management.
It creates and oversees a secure, reliable 'overlay' network
It puts traffic onto most appropriate paths for best performance
It connects locations regardless of underlying network
Technology you can bank on
Rabobank announced that it will be implementing Telstra's SD-WAN solution in over 90 branches across Australia and New Zealand.
The rollout marks the first step in the bank’s digital transformation journey.
This announcement was featured in such media as the Australian Business Review.

SD-WAN on Telstra's Programmable Network
We offer a broad range of SD-WAN solutions to suit your specific business needs. This includes the ability to deploy virtual SD-WAN technology on our universal customer premises equipment (uCPE), through Telstra Programmable Network.
Telstra Programmable Network is a new kind of network that adapts in real-time, offering a new level of control and flexibility. Software-defined network (SDN) and network function virtualisation (NFV) technologies are at the core of Telstra Programmable Network, providing a range of SDN-enabled options to power the evolution of your network.
Through our expert advice and consultancy, we can help architect the best fit solution for your business.
Maximise performance of your cloud apps
Improve the experience you provide staff and customers by enhancing the performance of your applications, whether they are hosted on-site or at a 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 Salesforce can be directed over the internet to utilise your WAN more efficiently.
Create more resilient branch networking operations
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. 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.
Easily fine tune your WAN for better performance
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.
Empower business transformation and agility
We help you get the most from SD-WAN by partnering with you, through our SDN engineering specialists. We understand your requirements and integrate SD-WAN solutions as part of a broader ICT infrastructure to help you achieve your business goals.
Network management becomes easier
Centralised policy control reduces complexity and supports faster WAN deployment and management.
This provides greater visibility into the network with the capability of rolling out network configuration changes more quickly than through site-by-site configuration. It also opens up greater risk of changes that negatively impact the network. An experienced managed services provider in SDN can assess the impact of the proposed changes and reduce the risk of network outages.
Simplify management of network security
Moving branch traffic off private networks and onto the internet can open up vulnerabilities. SD-WAN offers centralised security policies to simplify protection. 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.
