We’re excited to announce today that we have partnered with Rabobank to help them through their digital transformation with our Software Defined (SD) Wide Area Networks (WAN) solution.
Rabobank is the world’s leading agribusiness bank and one of Australia’s largest rural lenders, committed to servicing the needs of the rural community.
We have a long standing relationship with Rabobank, collaborating for many years in Australia and New Zealand. Today, we’re excited to strengthen this partnership even further as it takes the first step in its digital transformation program which includes a redesigned architecture for the bank.
Rabobank is future-proofing its network across 93 branches in Australia and New Zealand with the implementation of our SD-WAN solution.
As one of the first banks in Australian to implement SD-WAN to its regional network, Rabobank’s regional branches will now have access to the same technologies as in the major cities, supporting their digital transformation and creating better engagement with regional customers.
This will help Rabobank to optimise its branch network and deliver superior application performance to its branches. This comes after a successful proof of concept with the bank with the results showing a significant increase in speed and bandwidth capabilities, aligning strongly to Rabobank’s digital aspirations.
We’re excited to roll this out with Rabobank over the coming months, with a significant number of branches operating on the new network by end of 2018.
What is SD-WAN?
Our Telstra SD-WAN enables enterprises to securely support application growth, network agility and simplified branch and end-point implementations, while delivering optimised access to cloud services, private data centres and enterprise applications. Both enterprises and service providers will benefit from the multi-tenant cloud gateway architecture and support real-time applications over private, broadband and wireless links.
