Establishing an end-to-end SDN BGP, multi-AS network is an important milestone in the development of next-generation IP networks and peering fabrics' said Steve Cotter, CEO of REANNZ.
REANNZ is New Zealand's national research and education network.
Our M-series platforms enable REANNZ
to build an agile and open network that will reliably serve New Zealand's research community for many years to come.
Charles Jarvie, head of development for REANNZ, said the network adds important capabilities.
The Building Research Capability in the Social Sciences (BRCSS), which aims to network researchers in the social sciences field and mentor and develop the next generation of researchers, is one area of established collaboration that will benefit from the network being built by REANNZ.
We're delighted to be able to support REANNZ as it enhances New Zealand's ability to participate with the international research community.
REANNZ chief executive, Steve Cotter said that the network is designed to capture and share huge international datasets, enabling data intensive, complex research experiments.
REANNZ in addition deployed the EndaceProbe INR to observe its Los Angeles and Sydney international circuits.
Emulex Endace division senior vice president, Mike Riley, said a bullet-proof, reliable network is critically important to a research and education network such as REANNZ, as downtime or security breaches could lead to declines in membership or loss of government funding.
The REANNZ network is designed to capture and share huge international datasets, enabling data intensive, complex research experiments.
The REANNZ network was designed to provide minimal latency and jitter, so data can travel quickly between points without delay and without compromising users productivity.
REANNZ deployed the EndaceProbe INR to monitor its Los Angeles and Sydney international circuits to deliver continuous packet capture and network recording, while providing nanosecond accurate timestamps for every packet.
