Australian SD-WAN provider Next Telecom partners with VeloCloud
Australian SD-WAN provider Next Telecom’s vision to serve the Australian geography is aligned with VMware’s strategy to expand its software-defined wide area network (SD-WAN) footprint in the Asia-Pacific region and to enable multi-national businesses across the region to build more secure over-the-top networks leveraging economical public internet access.
Today’s distributed enterprises struggle with application performance and WAN complexity at their branch offices. VMware SD-WAN by VeloCloud automates branch deployment and ongoing management, delivers performance of cloud and enterprise applications and enables IT departments to roll out branch offices virtually by using the cloud as the WAN. Rapid deployment - while fixed connections are being installed - and branch resilience are even made possible using wireless technology.
“Next Telecom aims to provide connectivity and collaboration using cloud solutions that will free customers from the burden of investing in hardware solutions,” said Peter McGrath, CEO of Next Telecom. “VMware is at the core of this initiative. By combining VMware SD-WAN by VeloCloud with Next Telecom’s collaboration portfolio, customers can easily transform their business using a next generation branch network that combines better security and performance with a simple, centralised and abstracted management layer. This can help them adapt quickly to changing business and network conditions.”

Our SD-WAN experience includes deploying Australia's first 200+ site SD-WAN for one of Australians biggest Not For Profits.
