Network as a Service includes a basic layer of security including controls you can manage to block unwanted inbound and outbound traffic from your network. Enhanced security options are available (see below).
Network as a Service codes traffic with AES 256 encryption for state-of-the-art security. Mesh and hub-and-spoke topologies are permitted, and you get full control of the VPN through the self-serve platform.
Flow-based Quality of Experience (QoE) using 5-tuple classification
Use five-level decision logic to apply QoE policies. After they are set, you can apply them across all your networks.
Service availability reporting & usage analytics
With the self-serve platform, you get a consolidated view of metrics for your services and locations, including detailed service uptime and analytics. Reporting is also available on usage and throughput per site as well as CPE and WAN port level performance (including loss, jitter, and latency).
Port Address Translation (PAT)
With PAT, the TELUS Network as a Service hardware automatically translates private IPs in a LAN to a TCP port. This will allow you to share one public IP amongst a number of LAN hosts.
Port forwarding allows you to configure rules for a site (mapping of LAN IPs to a WAN TCP port). This is useful for when you want to access privately addressed hosts from the Internet, and is often used in conjunction with DNS.
TELUS Network as a Service will transparently work with existing static IP addresses provided by your Internet connection.
Equipment & setup
Installation and configuration
TELUS provides installation, configuration, and setup assistance. Internet services should be purchased separately from TELUS or another provider.
Dual wireline uplinks (active/standby)
Dual wireline access in active/standby mode is available where LTE backup cannot be supported.
Dual wireline uplinks (active/active)
This feature allows you to use two wireline connections in an active/active mode. Both links can be used to carry traffic in normal operating conditions.
Dual hardware (requires dual wireline uplinks)
Dual-hardware resiliency is also available. Primary Internet access connects to one hardware device while secondary access connects to the other. The two devices can connect to each other and your network router or switch.
The TELUS Network as a Service hardware comes with six ports standard.
Wireless LTE resiliency with external modem (active/standby)
Wireless LTE backup is included and is activated when the primary wireline link fails.
