New 10Gb/s Link Enhances REANNZ Network Resiliency
One of our key goals is to provide a network platform that supports production quality advanced services, networking research & development and experimental test beds. The impact of REANNZ delivering this, will mean that our users are able to conduct research, education and innovation that could not occur without the reach, reliability and speed of an advanced network.
We are constantly seeking ways to augment and enhance the REANNZ Network so that we are able to deliver this essential networking infrastructure for our community. From the outset of the network, we have been aware of the vulnerability of the single path between the North and South Island, and have now been able to secure a second, alternate path between them. Currently, we are commissioning a 10Gb/s circuit from Avalon (AVL) to Christchurch (CHC) that will improve the network resiliency by avoiding the bottle neck of the Cook Strait. The circuit will be provisioned on the TelstraClear AquaFOTs fibre as a 10Gb/s wavelength service.
The map below shows the enhanced REANNZ Network.
Our weathermap will be updated when the circuit goes live.
