Application Assured Networking™
Application Assured Networking™ is the easy, quick and affordable way to optimise your network to help ensure your applications perform at their peak. AAN will help you align your ICT with your business priorities.
Telstra is the first in the Asia Pacific region to offer Application Assured Networking™ (AAN). Our initial capability is Application Performance Reporting and a Consulting Service Desk. AAN Reporting gives you comprehensive visibility of your network and applications. It enables you to understand performance and configure policies to help ensure applications are delivered consistently, so you can plan for growth. AAN offers a Consultancy Service Desk for your assistance. Our highly trained professionals will provide training, reporting assistance, application signature and configuration support requests.
Other capabilities are coming soon. Together, they can help you to control costs, be more agile and productive, and get more performance and value from your IP network.
Taken together, the three offerings of Application Assured Networking™ can deliver significant benefits to your business:
Make informed business decisions
Identify applications running on your network and analyse their bandwidth usage and performance. Easily make changes to usage policies or bandwidth allocation, measure the impact, and predict the cost of new growth opportunities.
Improve productivity and user experience
Configure policies to help ensure applications are delivered consistently - even during peaks in demand.
Enhance business continuity
If outages occur, bandwidth can be dynamically provisioned to reduce application downtime.
Increase business agility
Quickly adapt to business change by proactively altering network configuration.
Deploy new business models to drive growth and enhance customer service or use powerful capabilities such as video conferencing, IP telephony and digital media.
Optimise the use of purchased bandwidth. And instead of permanently upgrading bandwidth for applications like video conferencing, only pay for the extra bandwidth you use at the time. You can also allocate costs to cost centres, reduce the cost of internal IT staff and tools by using the Consultancy Service Desk, and reduce outlay by centralising infrastructure.
Application Performance Reporting
Using Telstra’s online portal, you can baseline, monitor and analyse application performance across your network, and view by virtual private network, site or user. You can also predict the cost of deploying new applications.
Consultancy Service Desk
Our highly trained professionals will provide training, reporting assistance and support for your application signature and configuration requests.
Manual Policy Control (coming soon)
The online portal helps you to ensure critical applications perform at peak. Simply use the preconfigured templates to apply bandwidth priority, Quality of Service and service levels to the selected applications. You can also enable blocking policies to restrict unwanted applications on a site-by-site basis.
Automated Policy Control (coming soon)
With this enhancement, Telstra’s network will identify applications and apply your specified policies to them. Real-time, application-specific bandwidth bursting and shaping switches the application load as needed. Network resources will be available to help ensure a consistent service and user experience while changes are occurring.
