“We trialed the Oracle SD-WAN and were immediately impressed with the approach to real time WAN access across our fiber, MEO and GEO providers.”
Ok Tedi’s business challenges centered around improved network performance for safety and operational benefit. Both Cloud and on-premises applications use Oracle’s SD-WAN to provide high-precision mining services, upgraded process control, real-time fatigue management, and fleet tracking and monitoring systems. In addition, the company required cloud-based productivity applications to improve the quality and timeliness of information being provided to decision-makers.

Why Ok Tedi Mining Chose Oracle
Using Oracle SD-WAN, Ok Tedi improved “application fluency” to achieve 50% better application quality of experience. With the onset of the COVID-19 pandemic, Ok Tedi staff rapidly deployed reliable and less costly mining operations and WAN bandwidth connectivity to remote suppliers and a distributed workforce. Nearly 25% more additional remote team members operated seamlessly.
Oracle’s autonomous SD-WAN functionality ensured Ok Tedi’s always-on, reliable network connectivity to more than a dozen discrete locations. With the pandemic impacting global trade and the commodities market, it was critical to preserve auto-recovery/convergence resolution of network latency based on sub-second inspection of the network path by Oracle SD-WAN intelligence. In the end, Ok-Tedi achieved its highly sought 99.999% uptime for offshore data centers based in Australia.
Yell IT was selected by Ok Tedi after meeting with several of the IT services firm’s hundreds of customers who spoke to the firm’s reliable IT solutions. With mostly aging satellite and copper-based infrastructure in PNG, Ok Tedi needed Yell IT to move mountains to ensure network continuity.
Yell IT, based in Brisbane, Australia, offers application security, networking, and cloud and managed IT services. Yell IT helped Ok Tedi move its existing Office 365 suite applications to the cloud.
