  • Applications are IT’s Fundamental DeliverablesCommunication: Email, Voice, Social, …Business Management: ERP, CRM, Billing, FinancialsCustomer Interface: the services or products your organization providesFocus on Locations: from one to 2+/DR to distributed across a country/region/globeSingle Party full control, to sourcing & assembling parts
  • Cloudified the network: get network on demand, by the hour, add/grow/reduce/delete to meet demandThe network that works like cloud servers, storage & services doHow is this done? Software Defined Networking (ties to next slide)
  • SUMMARY: Today’s telco networks are rigid and inflexiblePacnet brings cloud attributes to the networkDynamic network enables an elastic, scalable ecosystem for applicationsFlexibility and Cooperation: not Lock-in

    1. 1. 1 Pacnet Enabled Network (PEN) – The Gateway to the New Era of Network Management
    2. 2. Who we are 2 • Ownership of Asia-Pacific‟s most extensive privately-owned high-capacity submarine cable system(s) – 46,420 km of sub-sea fiber – Multiple cable landings in major markets – 100 Gbps-enabled • Extensive reach to major business centers throughout the region – Including: Australia, China, Hong Kong, India, Japan, Korea, the Philippines, Singapore, Taiwan, and the United States • Connectivity to data centers in markets throughout the region – Owned and managed facilities in China, Hong Kong, Singapore and Australia – Partner facilities throughout Asia and Australia • Complete set of services for managed data, hosting, co-location, private line and content delivery • Pacnet is headquartered in Hong Kong and Singapore, with offices in Asia-Pacific and North America • With relationships throughout the region – Pacnet understands Asia!
    3. 3.

    5. 5. Data Center Connectivity Options – Across Town or Across Asia-Pacific 5 Dedicated connectivity to local „gravity‟ centers or private line to reach DCs across Asia MPLS service connecting to local „gravity‟ centers or to reach DCs across Asia – cross connect in Pacnet facilities included MPLS between Pacnet Data Centers – cross connects included MPLS to reach customer premise – service and local loop provisioned and billed by Pacnet
    6. 6. Observations since last summit •As a industry we seem to like the concepts ecosystems but not sure this is resinating with enough value to buyers in the market. •Ecosystems Models still largely immature • We still talk and sell power and cooling •Competitive market and availability of space has driven down prices (good for buyers) •Growing trend of “Interconnect” offers on the market. •Emergence of growing understanding of the value private connectivity into SaaS and other platforms •A race is on to establish the power / value of your ecosystem as the primary means to sell DC space and services. •Who will be the winner is unclear – the telco, the DC specialist or the new breed of business creating the enablement for connectivity.
    7. 7. Application Delivery has Changed in 15 Years Year2000Today Hardware Software Data Center CloudHybrid Cloud Many LocationsAzure In-House 1-2 Locations Co-Lo Racks 2+ Locations
    8. 8. Telecom Networks have not Kept Pace Historically Strong Adherence to Status Quo Fixed Bandwidth Fixed Annual Contracts Immobile Configurations Rigid Cycle Times …Until Now Flexible On-Demand Bandwidth Service by Flexible Duration Service when & where you want it Service can be DELIVERED in minutes!
    9. 9. PEN – The Network of the Future  PEN, built on Software Defined Networking (SDN) technologies utilizes OpenFlow – an open-source protocol, which deliver SDN capabilities from the top of the rack to the international backbone. It also builds flexibility and intelligence into the network across Pacnet infrastructure.  PEN is a platform enabling Customers to build network services (domestically and internationally) based on their performance and quality of service requirements.  PEN enables customers to dynamically build a network with a high level of control and flexibility. The Power to Network the Way YOU WANT IT!
    10. 10. PEN Brings Cloud Provisioning to the Network  With PEN, Provisioning time is measured by in minutes rather than weeks  In PEN web-based GUI, Customers dynamically provision network services between two locations whenever they are needed  Customers can also make use of PEN platform to make changes such as bandwidth upgrade and extend contract term whenever they are required 1 minute 1 minute 5 minutes 2 minutes Select Location Select Switch Port Build Flow Provision Flow Provisioning can be done in Minutes instead of Days!
    11. 11. Agile Deployment • Customers cannot wait for 2- 16 weeks for network provisioning • Business need to define network characteristics the same way they do compute Scalable Network • Bandwidth Requirements are always changing Breaking The Walls • Data needs to be reachable everywhere • Allowing business to share data Use Case: Pacnet Enabled Network SDN Technology ERP Internet AWS Email/Colab Private Cloud AWS Partner
    12. 12. Use Case – Techno Techno Group The Techno Group, one of Australia‟s leading systems integrators, is using PEN for its disaster recovery operation. It offers private cloud services hosted out of data centers in Melbourne and Sydney for clients throughout Australia and the wider Asia-Pacific region. Prior to taking up PEN Techno Group used a permanent connection for its disaster replication requirements. It carried traffic only during disaster recovery, but incurred the same fixed bandwidth cost, 24 hours every day. With PEN, Techno Group is now able to provision network services between two locations in minutes via the PEN online portal. The Techno Group is also using PEN to support design and printing companies that need to send large files across continents. The Techno Group is only billed according to the amount, quality and duration of its network usage while at the same time benefitting from industry-leading SLAs and secure private network.
    13. 13. What PEN means to our Customers PEN offers customers the ability to build network interconnects with bandwidth and performance characteristics they require Leverage Pacnet’s global and domestic infrastructure Point-to-point international private connections to customers and extensive data center facilities across data centers in Asia Pacific Automated provisioning Within minutes provisioning through Online Portal or API No more paper forms and manual process Pay for what you use Flexible pricing model Billed to the amount, quality and duration of network usage No more long-term commitment Enable hybrid cloud deployment Extends enterprise data centers and private clouds to external public clouds
    14. 14. Roadmap  PEN is available in 10 data centers across 5 geographical locations:  Australia including  Hong Kong  Japan  Singapore  United States  Expanding to China, India, Korea, Taiwan and the United Kingdom in 2014 v.1.0 Release  Point-to-Point “EIPL”  Self-Provisioning via GUI and API  Bandwidth 1-1,000 Mbps  Latency Parameters v.3.0 – End of 2014  Layer 3 networks  Integration with Internet  Support Layer 1 technologies  Extend into IP VPN and Waves Continuous Software Development Cycle
