Optus Wholesale has taken the wrappers off its Software Defined Networking (SDN) called Optus Cloud-N.
The wholesale white label solution enables customers to ‘skin’ the service, meaning they can control and design highly secure private Optus Cloud-N Services as their own.
Through a portal, customers can also change their real-time bandwidth requirements to suit high and low traffic periods.
It will offered at Equinix datacentres in Sydney and Melbourne, and Optus said it plans to expand to other major datacentres later this year.
Optus Wholesale head of marketing and strategy, John Castro, said partners can also rebrand the SDN service as their own and resell it using their retail rates.
“The service combines our 100Gbps network capability together with the investments Optus has made in data centre infrastructure and is in response to customers asking for pay-as-you-go services,” he said in a statement.
Cloud-N provides flexibility through different grades of service in hourly increments to suit customer requirements, such as the ability to ramp up and scale back services as required.
“This flexibility and security is all about supporting private, public and hybrid cloud service connectivity and enablement, delivering improved economics because customers are only using what they need, when they need it,” he said.
“For businesses to leverage various cloud based services and user demands, they need secure, flexible on demand network connectivity for mission critical and non-mission critical applications.”
