Nextgen Networks had connected its fibre network to the AXONVX virtual exchange in NEXTDC’s P1 datacentre in Perth.
Western Australian customers will have access to on-demand private connectivity to public clouds and other services from NEXTDC’s east coast data centres, such as AWS Direct Connect, IBM SoftLayer Direct Link, as well as Microsoft ExpressRoute for Office 365 and Azure, with speeds up to 10Gb/s
AXONVX nodes in NEXTDC’s P1 Perth, M1 Melbourne and S1 Sydney data centres have been connected to Nextgen Network’s fibre network with its new Fusion API.
“Nextgen Networks’ commitment to supporting the delivery of our AXONVX virtual exchange demonstrates the power of neutral connectivity-as-a-service and how it can rapidly deliver new value to existing infrastructure investments,” NEXTDC CEO, Craig Scroggie, said.
Nextgen Networks owns and operates one of Australia’s largest fibre optic networks and interconnects more than 90 data centres across Australia, including 13 in Western Australia, connecting mainland capital cities to regional and remote areas.
A year ago, Nextgen Networks introduced east-west 100Gb/s wavelength capacity, offering support for sub-rated 10Gb/s and 100Gb/s Ethernet services with a full suite of connectivity options.
“As the need for big data increases, the demand for bandwidth grows and our 100Gb/s service capability, coupled with our new switched Ethernet platform and Nextgen Fusion API, means we are well positioned to provide for our customers’ future requirements,” Nextgen CEO, David Yuile, said.
