Tuesday 8 August 2017 | 09:54 CET | News
Macquarie Telecom has launched its SD-WAN service for Australian business. The service provides a combination of multi-path and multi-carrier dynamic routing services. Accordign to Macquarie Telecom, its SD-WAN service features intelligent ‘dynamic packet routing’, which means network functions and information can be carried over a mix of links which might include NBN, private links, 4G or microwave links. 

Macquarie Telecom’s service can also leverage multiple carriers. The system is designed to automatically choos the best pathway to transmit application information and workloads. 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. The system is also designed to automatically adjust speed to reduce jitter and latency ensuring, for example, voice and video arrive together and there are no pixelated images during video conferencing. 

According to Macquarie Telecom, businesses will also have full visibility of up to 2,500 applications running across their networks via a single screen, the Orchestrator, and be able to see in real time which apps are using up bandwidth. In addition, network information and data are intelligently analysed and prioritised as needed. For example, a VoIP or video conference call, which needs the lowest latency possible, is prioritised over an email.
