Let’s rewind a bit to 2016. Macquarie Telecom sat down and analysed the industry, recognising that there were several key trends happening. What we recognised was that a huge disruption was about to unfold in networking and business data markets – a disruption that was great for the customer.

That disruption was SD-WAN.

A year was spent researching, testing, meetings with every vendor on the planet supplying SD-WAN solutions. These were long nights, with plenty of blood, sweat and tears.

Finally, in August 2017, we went live with our market leading SD-WAN solution, with our partner, VeloCloud (now part of the VMWare family).

This made us the first Australian telecom company to deliver a true SD-WAN solution. And the market responded. Within a month, we’d set up 100 sites.

This brings us to the present day. With over **** sites running VMWare SD-WAN by VeloCloud, we are by far the leading SD-WAN solution provider, not only in Australia, but the whole Asia Pacific region.

This was recognised earlier this year at VMWare’s Partner Innovation Awards at the Partner Leadership Summit 2019, where we were recognised as best-in-class VMWare SD-WAN by VeloCloud Solution in Asia-Pacific and Japan.

The award rewards outstanding performance by channel partners, recognising the top performers and the critical role played in determining VMWare’s 2019 strategy.

“2018 was a fantastic year for VMware and our partners, and we are pleased to recognize all of our 2018 VMware Partner Innovation Awards winners,” said Jenni Flinders, vice president, Worldwide Channel Chief, VMware. “VMware, together with our partners, will continue to drive business innovation through next-generation VMware technologies, empowering customers to thrive throughout their digital transformation journeys.”
