Macquarie Telecom, a full service business provider of data, voice, mobile and colocation services in Australia has launched its SD-WAN service that is powered by 'VeloCloud Cloud-Delivered SD-WAN for Service Providers' solution.

The solution, which offers a unique combination of multi-path and multi-carrier dynamic routing services, is available to customers and propels Macquarie Telecom into a market expected to be worth more than AUD$10 billion globally by 2021, according to research from IDC.

VeloCloud's technology enables Macquarie Telecom’s SD-WAN service with intelligent dynamic packet routing so network functions and information can be carried over a mix of links which might include NBN, private links, 4G or microwave links.  

The system automatically chooses the best pathway to transmit application information and workloads, ensuring the highest speed and lowest latency is always achieved. This multipath, multicarrier approach means that if one link goes down, the others take over to ensure there is no downtime or outage experienced by the user, and no one in the business will even know it has happened. 

Luke Clifton, Group Executive, Macquarie Telecom
We are the first telco to offer a true SD-WAN solution to the market in Australia and we have more than 80 customers already using the service. The industry has been scrambling to define SD-WAN and what it really means – we’re ready to define it.

Michael Davies, Customer & Emerging TEchnologies Director, Macquarie Telecom 
If there’s traffic on the road, the SD-WAN can automatically change my lane to that with the least amount of traffic within milliseconds – and I don’t have to do a thing, the system changes the lane for me automatically. That is the level of automation and simplicity available to our SD-WAN customers.
