Telstra wholesale has launched the first step of its Business Data Access Solution (BDAS) initiative with the Data Evolution Program.
It involves Metro Ethernet Forum (MEF) certification for all of Telstra Wholesale’s Ethernet products, national Ethernet aggregation, 10 Mbps wholesale business grade DSL (W-BDSL) capability, improved performance availability for W-BDSL from 99.6 per cent to 99.8 per cent, and an online management tool that enables customers to determine availability and quote prices for BDAS instantly, anywhere across the Telstra Wholesale footprint.
Telstra Wholesale head of products and marketing, Terry Scerri, said the new offering already had six customers on board, following a four-month trial period, and a ‘good’ pipeline of future signups.
Telstra wholesale will continue to add to the BDAS development with solutions around residential, mobile and high-capacity transfer data.
“We’re delighted with the feedback so far,” Scerri said. “The availability and pricing tool is a major standout.”
The solution is especially appealing for the Telstra Wholesale systems integrator and service provider customers, Scerri said.
