Telkomtelstra Implements Indonesia’s Largest SD-WAN Footprint Covering Over 5000 Sites Across the Region

JAKARTA, 2 NOVEMBER 2020 -Telkomtelstra announced today the company’s success in setting a new industry benchmark for an Indonesia managed service provider by deploying a VMware SD-WAN solution to more than 5000 sites across Indonesia in one project. As enterprises ‘demand for robust, dependable, and secure network for geographically dispersed branch location grows, Telkomtelstra offers a proven cloud- SD-WAN solution to answer these challenges.

With 12,000 inhabited islands and over 17,000 total islands in Indonesia, enterprises operating in the local market need to expand their branches into remote areas, which presents a unique challenge from the resources, network, and security standpoint.  However, for years these enterprises have been forced to lean on traditional WAN running over MPLS to accommodate their connectivity needs. Traditional WAN is not suitably equipped to accommodate the scalability of cloud usage for high business productivity; additionally, MPLS is an expensive technology.

“We understand the business challenges of delivering high availability network and difficulty managing IT branches over the expansive geography of Indonesia with many remote sites,” said Telkomtelstra Chief Customer Officer Agus F. Abdillah. “As a leading managed service provider of network solutions in Indonesia, we are proud of our accomplishment in deploying an advanced network of SD-WAN to thousands of sites that can support the needs of today’s businesses, regardless of branches’ geographical location,” added Agus.

Operating as a joint venture between Telkom Indonesia and Telstra Australia, Telkomtelstra offers an end-to-end managed SD-WAN solution that supports businesses from various industries by optimising workload performance over a cloud-enabled network, thus improving bandwidth allocation and application performance across multiple branch offices.

“For large enterprises with branch offices spread across regions that require cloud access and exceptional customer experience, our solution will leverage key capabilities of SD-WAN, such as automation and Dynamic Multi-Path Optimisation. This will help give enterprises the power to distribute rules, make policy changes, and implement new network configurations across highly distributed branches at any scale in seconds from anywhere,” said Agus.

Furthermore, Agus also highlighted another key feature – Zero-Touch Provisioning and auto failover – of Telkomtelstra SD-WAN solution powered by VMware. This feature will help enterprises to minimise reliance on routing hardware as well as manual network maintenance or new deployments. Businesses will benefit by realising higher efficiencies in operating and managing costs, compared to traditional WAN.

VMware SD-WAN solution delivers high performance and reliable access from branches or work-from-anywhere locations to cloud services, private data centres and SaaS-based enterprise applications in a cost-effective manner. It simplifies branch-wide area networking by automating deployment and improving performance over private, broadband Internet, and LTE links for today’s distributed enterprises. VMware SD-WAN is a foundational component of VMware Secure Access Service Edge (SASE) Platform, which converges network services with best-in-class cloud security and Zero Trust network access to deliver flexibility, agility and scalability for enterprises of all sizes. “Enterprise branches across Indonesia will now have access to dependable, high performance connectivity with intrinsic secure access to applications and data to optimize and transform branch operations,” said Agus.
