Telstra Launches NFV/SDN Services based on Cisco

Telstra launched its first SDN services for Australian customers.  The deployment is the result of a recent partnership with Cisco focused on network transformation via NFV and SDN.

The first product, Internet Virtual Private Network (Internet VPN), available later this month, will enable businesses to connect multiple sites and mobile workers to office networks, with secure, encrypted links over the public Internet, with just a few clicks in Telstra’s online portal.

The second product, available today in beta is Cloud Gateway Protection, a virtual security appliance that can be deployed and configured within minutes in the cloud to protect internet access, cloud services and Next IP networks from malicious attacks and unauthorised access.


The third SDN product, available later this year, is Data Centre Interconnect, an extension of Telstra’s global data centre interconnect SDN product, PEN . By adding Australian PoPs, the extended solution will enable businesses to instantly set up point-to-point links between domestic and global data centres, configure them on-the-fly and choose from a variety of pay-as-you-go, flexible contract terms, all from the same portal.

Philip Jones, Telstra Executive Director of Global Products and Solutions said, “Just as cloud computing redefined the user compute experience – with simple, dynamic configuration and provisioning – SDN and NFV technologies are redefining the user experience on the network. By allowing us to overcome the constraints of traditional network infrastructure, the software driven customer experiences dramatically increases our agility by enabling us to quickly create new solutions, and puts the control of those solutions into the hands of our customers.”

Kelly Ahuja, Cisco’s Senior Vice President of Service Provider Business, Products, and Solutions, said: “This is yet another example of Cisco’s commitment to redefining the networks of the future. Software and virtualisation are set to transform the network and customer experience for thousands of businesses everywhere. By combining Cisco’s agile and flexible software platform with Telstra’s customer focused and customer friendly range of products, we send a powerful message to the industry and a provide a clear example of how to develop and design the network services of tomorrow.”
