ACFS Port Logistics – Customer Story

“When a customer can come to us and they need more room, they’ll ask for it as soon as possible. Utilising the Cisco Meraki device, along with an nbnTM access network, we’re able to set up a warehouse, wherever, whenever.  I’m not aware of anyone else in the industry that can set up a warehouse better than what we can. It’s a game changer.”

- Anthony Tzaneros, CIO 

Cisco SD-WAN over business nbnTM

"It’s about making things simple for customers. Increasing your confidence in the solution from day one!”

- Kevin Bloch, former Cisco CTO 

SD-WAN is a new approach to network connectivity, designed to lower operational costs and improve resource usage for multi-site deployments. But the challenge remains; a confusion-of-choice and the need for quality connectivity that supports evolving application needs and a future fit workplace. Which equipment, on which network and how to integrate them?

Working in nbn’s National Test Facility, and with the support of nbn’s engineers, Cisco have completed testing of Cisco’s Secure SD-WAN equipment over business nbn™. The result is a comprehensive series of reference designs for Australian businesses of any size – matching the right product to the right network connection, tested and ready-to-go.
