Telstra Vantage - Better together
“Hi, I got told to come and see you” - was the most common line amongst visitors to our stand at Telstra Vantage this year. This was rewarding and evidence of what a year of hard work and collaboration with our vendors can achieve.
What was evident was that new solutions have matured rapidly, putting customer experience right in the centre. APIs, cloud, SDN, programmability, developer networks and strong synergies between best in class vendors are changing the network landscape. We are proud of not only being relevant and bringing tangible value to Telstra customers but being integral to Telstra’s digital transformation. This is core to the Sinefa mission.
A big shout out to the NaaS team for pushing the envelope of innovation and demonstrating a remarkable service model. The famous LEGO stand was a very popular destination and displayed how network transformation initiatives have moved from science projects to reality. TPN and NaaS unlock exciting new opportunities for customers and were discussed at many of the keynote sessions, including Andy Penn’s (Telstra’s CEO). Use cases of more agility, better user experience, multi-cloud, security and whole lot more, are all now within reach and available.
We are excited to be available and have our first clients on TPN, offering customers drag and drop, best in class application performance and traffic intelligence. We are energised about upcoming partnerships with public cloud, sd-wan, security and machine learning services which under the Telstra ecosystem further enhance and speed up service delivery. We are all Better Together!
To everyone at Telstra, thank you! There are ups and downs in every industry but innovation, transformation and disruption is all around us right now and we are indeed grateful to everyone that has played a role in showcasing Sinefa’s value and vision over the years. It has made Sinefa consumable in many different forms and very easily and widely available to Telstra customers. Together, our time to value for customers is unprecedented and we continue to improve on this as part of our partnership. Kudos to the TPN team for exposing one of the smoothest VNF onboarding process in the industry.
As we close off from Vantage 2018, we head to the AT&T summit in Dallas in collaboration with IBM predictive insights team. Sinefa will be demonstrated by IBM and Sinefa’s US team. Gwen Stefani and Billy Idol will also be on show. Turns out my wife loves Gwen Stefani so I hope she never reads this blog.
Thank you, and we all look forward to Telstra Vantage 2019 !
