Singtel launches new SDN platform for cloud networking
Published 1 December 2020
Singtel launched Liquid-X, a software-defined, cloud-based networking platform integrating multicloud connectivity, analytics and security for network management.
The solution addresses the growing need for an all-in-one cloud-based solution for enterprises to gain centralised control, flexibility and scalability when managing different networks around the world
“The global pandemic has driven more enterprises to rely on the cloud to host their data and solutions. For enterprises with global operations, it is a challenge to manage multiple clouds hosting their workloads as each cloud requires a separate connectivity,” said Lim Seng Kong, the Managing Director for Singtel Enterprise Business at Group Enterprise.
Liquid-X will be supported by Singtel’s network infrastructure in 362 cities and partnerships with major public cloud and cloud-based software providers. The solution also leverages Singtel’s self-service portal, MyConnect, for its analytics function by selecting the most suitable cloud or internet service provider.
Cloud connectivity is achieved by integrating Liquid-X with Singtel’s Managed Software-Defined Wide Area Network, which covers 20 SD WAN gateways worldwide, for performance monitoring, secure traffic routing and access to public clouds.
Liquid-X represents Singtel’s vision of their digital transformation by combining leading-edge software-defined technologies, network analytics and security for global cloud connectivity.
