Managed SD-WAN

Optimise performance with an agile WAN

Deliver great user experiences and better application performance, with a managed software-defined wide area network (SD-WAN).

Traditional WANs are complex, time-consuming to manage and costly to upgrade. Managed SD-WAN gives you the agility to respond to changing demands. By routing traffic over different network paths, depending on priorities, you can empower productive teams, optimise application performance and minimise service disruptions.

Key features

Transport agnostic

Distribute WAN traffic securely over carrier services, including IPVPN and broadband, enabling you to route traffic on the most efficient channel without sacrificing application performance.

Central orchestration

Simplify your WAN and deploy faster with centralised control. This feature also provides greater visibility of application traffic, bandwidth usage and device statistics on your network.

Enhanced secure connectivity

Strong encryption techniques and access controls protect your WAN traffic and communication with cloud applications, remote offices or data centres, over both the public Internet and IPVPN.

Application-aware routing

Dynamically forward data packets according to application type, performance, policies and path status. Monitor network performance to fine tune the network for critical services.


Improve the experience you offer 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 take action on Telstra-owned network underlays to 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.

Improve your protection from cyber threats

Centralised security policies help protect your business as you move traffic onto the internet. You can also add our 24/7 monitoring service with the latest global threat intelligence via our Global Security Operations Centre.
