Private Networks

A powerful, resilient network your business can rely on


Telstra invests millions of dollars every year in continually improving its world class data network infrastructure. Telstra has been in the MPLS networking game for 20 years. The big investment in Next IP®, from around 2005, included their first purchase of Cisco’s largest carrier-grade routers (they also bought some for the TID network). That investment included buying the routers, having them installed and having them commissioned by Cisco. These days, many of Telstra’s larger customers are moving away from the traditional PSTN or ISDN technology and choosing IP telephony. The data network is still at the core of everything our customers do.

These days, all networks run over IP, but they vary in performance, reliability and security. For example, while you can use the Internet for business and enterprise networks, many organisations prefer to use Multi-Protocol Label Switching (MPLS) instead because it offers a private WAN environment with predictable performance, high reliability, and inherent security

Overview of Next IP®

Next IP® is the name we give the Telstra Private Core Network. It is a vast collection of routers that direct traffic across our network, Australia wide.

Why do customers choose Next IP®?

Telstra has a history of providing very large, high-quality engineered networks in both the private and the public domain. Telstra has decades of experience managing the network, its established loads, its traffic patterns and many other technical factors to achieve the “five nine five” reliability.
