Telstra unveils SDN partnership with US-based VeloCloud

08 Mar 17

Telstra has revealed a new partnership with US-based VeloCloud Networks.

The partnership includes an investment by Telstra Ventures in VeloCloud as part of their latest funding round.

Mark Sherman, Managing Director of Telstra Ventures, says the investment was consistent with Telstra’s overall network strategy, with Software Defined Networking (SDN) and Network Function Virtualisation (NFV) increasingly playing a role in offering greater network flexibility and agility for enterprise customers.

“We expect SDN will continue to transform enterprise networking around the world and VeloCloud SD-WAN can help companies achieve more agile and responsive networks as well as reduce costs,” he explains.

“We are excited about the opportunity to work with VeloCloud on solutions for our enterprise customers, particularly in the Asia-Pacific region where their technology can help businesses manage their networks in dynamic environments across multiple locations,” adds Sherman.

“Our first step will be to offer VeloCloud technology to customers in mainland China.”

VeloCloud Cloud-Delivered SD-WAN enables enterprises to securely support application growth, network agility and simplified branch and end-point implementations.

“VeloCloud is very pleased that Telstra is an investor and partner in our recently concluded funding round,” adds Sanjay Uppal, CEO and Co-founder of VeloCloud.

“We see great opportunities in Asia where more businesses are leveraging both public and private networks and relying on cloud services and applications,” explains Uppal.

“We look forward to working closely with Telstra given the strength of their network, customer relationships and experience in the Asia-Pacific region.”
