Equipping the enterprise to embrace digital transformation

Digital transformation is both a challenge and an opportunity for enterprise businesses. To overcome the challenges and grasp the opportunities, businesses need to put themselves at the heart of vibrant digital ecosystems, where they can leverage the power of interconnection. As digital transformation drives the distribution of services and controls closer to customers, employees, partners and ecosystems, 85% of enterprises are embracing multicloud1 for better agility, flexibility and performance. Equinix and Telstra have extended their partnership to help enterprises take control of their digital strategy by building a digital edge via a multicloud strategy.

Telstra’s proven extensive network coverage, implementation and consulting services empower businesses with a migration roadmap that best matches their divergent workloads to multiple clouds. To seamlessly and securely connect workloads to multiple clouds, the joint solution leverages Equinix Cloud Exchange Fabric™ (ECX Fabric™) to directly, securely and dynamically connect distributed infrastructure and digital ecosystems globally on Platform Equinix® via Telstra Programmable Network (TPN), a software-defined network.

Together, we’ve radically simplified cloud connection by focusing on a fully automated experience, drastically opening the connection possibilities visible to a user while ensuring that your business can privately, securely and directly exchange digital information with your customers, partners and providers irrespective of location, and deployed with a few clicks of a button.

What is TPN?

As the first global software defined network built on OpenFlow, Telstra Programmable Network (TPN) was designed to help businesses embrace digital transformation and quickly respond to customers and changing market dynamics with next generation agility, flexible consumption of services, and automated provisioning of network services. Today, TPN provides a growing range of network; security, cloud and application services that can be managed via a customer portal with a single unified view or customer systems interfaced via APIs.
