Challenge

Expand digital services to meet growing customer need

A number of targeted acquisitions have created massive growth opportunities for 5G Networks. The 2021 majority acquisition of Webcentral Group, a web hosting and domain name registrar, has now added more than 300,000 customers. A few months later, the company acquired Intergrid, a leading provider of bare-metal cloud services.

To capitalise on digital opportunities, 5G Networks is expanding its nationwide fibre footprint to link Australia’s capital cities and directly connect 80 data centres. The company is also growing its cloud and managed IT business, anchored in five state-of-the-art data centres in Melbourne, Sydney, Brisbane and Adelaide. 

Solution

Scalable, efficient network as the foundation for rapid service growth

5G Networks relies on Juniper solutions for the foundation of its national network, data centre and cloud services, and managed IT services.

Juniper Networks® MX Series Universal Routing Platform underpins its 100-Gbps core network, easily transporting massive amounts of data at high speed and low latency. Juniper Networks QFX Series Switch and EX Series Switch serve as the spine and leaf nodes for the IP network fabric in its data centres. Juniper Networks SRX Series Services Gateway provides next-generation firewall services to protect its data centres and other points of presence.

“The Juniper team are always on hand, from sales and solution enablement through to providing solid commercial outcomes, allowing us to be competitive in the marketplace,” says Karla Chiappazzo, Partner Manager at 5G Networks.

5G Networks appreciates the operational efficiency of Juniper’s high-density routers and switches, enabling the provider to serve more customers at a lower the cost of operations. Less rack space and lower power consumption also mean that its data centres have a lower carbon footprint. 

Outcome

Serving the digital needs of a broader customer base

5G Networks forecasts strong growth for its newest managed IT service offering: software-defined local area network (SD-LAN). Customers can stay focused on their business priorities while 5G Networks handles network operators. Customers can count on fast, reliable, and secure wired and wireless connectivity to power their digital activities.

In addition, 5G Networks have recently expanded its wholesale business, selling data centre, cloud, and IP transit services to managed service providers across the country. This expansion delivers huge opportunities to expand its private and hybrid cloud services.

5G Networks continues to seek accretive acquisitions and investment opportunities that will fuel its growth trajectory. “With open, scalable Juniper solutions as our network foundation, the company is well positioned to accelerate digital transformation for customers” Marco Mattiuzzo, CTO, 5G Networks. 

"Juniper’s willingness to invest resources and time into our partnership is second to none. Juniper understands the components that make up a successful partnership and puts them into practice every day."
