The Telstra difference

Our Telstra Programmable Network empowers you to embrace digital transformation and quickly respond to evolving business needs and changing market dynamics with next generation agility, flexible consumption of services, and automated provisioning of network services.

Consumption based

Only pay for what you use, driving down costs of under-utilised services and maximising your network investments.


An intelligent network that enables you to self-provision network capacity, services and applications on-demand.

Transformative experience

On-demand services on a single unified platform, via a single, easy-to-use portal or by customer systems interfaced via APIs.


How it works

Define the services you want, on-demand, and with automated delivery. We use an innovative self-serve platform so you can pick and choose the solutions that work for your organisation, pay for what you use, and scale as required without physically provisioning more infrastructure.

The platform comprises of three major components:

Infrastructure layer

This contains the enabling physical network, storage and compute resources.

Control layer

The orchestrator integrates the hardware and software functions of our SDN/NFV platform with our other services.

Application layer

Specify the network services and functions and the business applications required.

SDN How it works


The Telstra Programmable Network uses software defined networks (SDN) and network function virtualisation (NFV) to bypass legacy provisioning, activation and outdated management IT systems, dramatically improving the duration of activation times, if the right infrastructure is already in place.



Services orchestration combines, configures and manages, in near real-time, infrastructure capabilities, communication services and business applications. It facilitates the monitoring, validation and assurance to ensure services perform reliably and consistently.

What the analysts are saying



Telstra is investing heavily to integrate SDN/NFV capabilities into its global networks to offer a centrally controlled, programmable and optimized network. These are strong talking points for Telstra when approaching existing and prospective customers.




It is almost a given that enterprises will demand to consume network services as they consume cloud services... The Telstra Programmable Network will meet market demands and enable Telstra to effectively serve new segments and existing customers more effectively and efficiently.
