12 reappointments, including several promotions, have been made to the boards of AgResearch, the Institute of Geological & Nuclear Sciences (GNS Science), Landcare Research, the National Institute of Water and Atmospheric Research Ltd (NIWA), New Zealand Forest Research Institute Ltd (Scion), New Zealand Institute for Plant & Food Research and Research and REANNZ.
REANNZ contributes to the success of New Zealands research and education sector, providing the infrastructure that enables growth in data-intensive research.
Andrew von Dadelszen, Colleen Neville and Professor SteveWeaver have been reappointed to New Zealand Institute for Plant & Food Research, Scion and REANNZ boards respectively.
According to REANNZ
, the network capacity offered is over 4000 times faster than basic residential broadband and 1000 times faster than ultra-fast broadband at present accessible in New Zealand.
The security firm has presented its EndaceProbe intelligent network recorder (INR) and the EndaceVision network visibility software to REANNZ.
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.
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.
