Macquarie Telecom has selected Juniper Networks for the refresh of its nationwide network from the core to the edge, and to power its continued growth through its “customer-first” attitude across telecom, data centre and cloud services.
For Macquarie Telecom, inflexible telecom terms, long lead times and indifferent customer service are old business practices untenable in today’s fast-moving digital world. However, the ability to provide those differentiated levels of experience requires a high-performing networking infrastructure from which to launch services.
As such, Macquarie Telecom partnered with Juniper Networks to power its nationwide refresh and to introduce agile, automated and AI-driven innovation across its network.
The open frameworks, APIs and toolkits available across Juniper’s networking and security solutions are leveraged by Macquarie Telecom to facilitate increased network reliability while simplifying automation.
The nationwide network upgrade by Juniper Networks is slated to be completed by the end of 2020.
Macquarie Telecom continues to explore ways to leverage the Juniper platform to deliver innovative and exceptional customer-centric services for its in-demand services, including through an ongoing focus on increasing automation across its network operations
“As our company grows, we cannot continue to scale solely by hiring more people. It is vital that we automate our delivery and assurance remediation capabilities,” said Luke Clifton, group executive of Macquarie Telecom Group.
Clifton said partnering with Juniper Networks has enabled Macquarie Telecom to scale up their networks as part of their long-term growth, especially crucial in light of the continued growth in demand for their services from across Australia businesses.
“Together, we are confident that we can improve time-to-market while increasing the end customer’s experience, all while providing Macquarie Telecom with an ultra-reliable and highly-agile network for years to come,” said Bruce Bennie, VP & GM for ANZ at Juniper Networks.
