What is SD-WAN?

SD-WAN (Software-Defined Wide Area Network) brings together a range of different access

technologies (e.g. an MPLS-based service - IPVPN, Internet, and wireless) as your WAN and uses software-defined networking (SDN) to prioritise traffic flow and intelligently route traffic with available bandwidth according to service.

Key features

Transport agnostic WAN connectivity

SD-WAN lets WAN traffic securely distributed over most carrier service offerings, including IPVPN, internet, and 5G/4G, and specify paths to route traffic through the most efficient channel without sacrificing application performance.

Enhanced secure connectivity

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.

Bandwidth augmentation with internet broadband access

Use SD-WAN to meet business demands by augmenting your existing IPVPN with internet bandwidth or replace it altogether with Enterprise-grade internet at any branch office to enable new services or high-bandwidth applications.

Central orchestration

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.

Rapid site deployment through utilising local internet breakout

Deploy new branch office network onto your private network through zero-touch provisioning plug-and-play, eliminate the need to wait for local loop deployment, and accelerate your speed to market for new market expansion.

Management options

We offer SD-WAN along with Co-Managed* or Fully-Managed Network Services, which you can count on Telstra for project management, detailed design, ordering, provisioning, activation, and maintenance of your network infrastructure. *This is available to Cisco Meraki SD-WAN technology.

Improve the experience you offer to staff and customers

Fine tune your WAN for better application performance. Prioritise traffic and use bandwidth more efficiently by routing time-sensitive applications over IPVPN while SaaS applications can be directed over the internet.

Create more resilient branch networking operations

Keep your business running with a flexible and redundant hybrid network. We manage the performance of links at the branch so we can act on Telstra-owned network underlays to help resolve connectivity issues.

Empower your business transformation and improve agility

Our SDN engineering specialists will work with you get the most from SD-WAN and help achieve business goals. We can also help integrate SD-WAN solutions in your broader ICT infrastructure.

Easier network management

Get greater visibility and deploy WAN and configuration changes faster with centralised policy control. We assess the impact of changes and reduce the risk of network outages within your new SD-WAN environment.
