New Levels Of Redundancy For Victorian Users

Post by ForumAdmin » Fri Mar 18, 2011 10:59 am

Coincident with commissioning its second PoP in Melbourne Exetel has added a fourth level of redundancy for Melbourne residential and corporate users.

Yesterday a new 500 mbps Sydney to Melbourne link supplied by AAPT was added to the network. This duplicates the Melbourne/Sydney link already in place supplied by NextGen. In addition to the two Sydney/Melbourne links Exetel provides connectivity to both Verizon and Optus IP routing as well as peering to Pipe from the two Melbourne PoPs.

This additional capacity and redundancy is part of the overall plan to provide at least three levels of redundancy in each mainland state of Australia before the end of the current financial year.
