South-Australia based ISP, Internode, has bolstered its IP network capacity through a network upgrade.
The ISP rolled out five 10 gigabit links between Adelaide, Sydney, Canberra and Melbourne, which Internode claims has pushed inter-city network capacity up by 150 per cent.
It has also boosted capacity between Tasmania and the mainland by 80 per cent to accommodate for a data traffic influx partially attributed to stage one of the National Broadband Network (NBN) trials occurring in the state.
Overall, Internode’s IP network has experienced a 130 per cent increase in capacity.
“As well as making our national network simpler to manage, getting rid of that plethora of smaller links allows us to use our network much more effectively,” Internode network architect, Daryl Collins, said in a statement.
“While this improved design is invisible to customers, they benefit from Internode’s network continuing to evolve to meet their needs, whether that’s delivering highly responsive performance for online services and gaming or large data quotas for accessing IPTV and other data-rich content.”
