As the demand for data continues to grow exponentially, one of my biggest challenges is to make sure Telstra’s network keeps pace with these demands – both now and into the future.
Consequently, we have been working closely with a number of our world leading technology partners including Cisco Systems, Inc to develop the next wave of highly powerful and efficient routers.
This close collaboration between our two companies has helped to develop and now deploy the world’s most powerful router, the Cisco NCS6008, on Telstra’s Internet Direct (TID) network. The Telstra Internet Direct network connects our enterprise, government and Wholesale customers to the World Wide Web.
Our new super router is currently managing traffic on the busy Melbourne to Sydney path and makes Telstra the first Telco in the world to enable live network traffic on the next generation of routing technology.
