As a high profile, flagship network, REANNZ demands the same performance and reliability TelstraClear requires of our own network, so it was an easy decision for us to work with our trusted partner Juniper Networks to deliver the routing component of the REANNZ project.
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.
REANNZ s high-speed network connects close to 170 institutions, counting universities, Crown Research Institutes, Institutes of Technology and Polytechnics, schools and businesses.
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.
Emulex solutions allow REANNZ to maintain tight network performance monitoring, while reducing packet loss and the time it takes to pinpoint and diagnose bottlenecks or security events on their network, helping ensure member satisfaction and the ability to continue to grow the organisation.
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.
