An international focus for the network provider
By Patrick Gallagher
VostroNet has expanded its lightning fast network recently by installing a new Juniper MX480 router in the Hurricane Electric Data Centre in San Francisco. The team’s visit to the United States was focused on implementing the infrastructure required to support our growing service internationally.
The expansion saw VostroNet purchase capacity on the Southern Cross Cable (a network cable spanning almost 35,500 km in length); expanding its international network to the United States. Once connected, there was an observable decline in international transit using local providers, as traffic favoured the pathway efficiency of the new connection.
The expansion of the VostroNet network to the United States has also been accompanied by an upgrade to our high-speed network by replacing our core router in Sydney recently; catering for the rapid growth of the VostroNet Network.
Taking time out from the installation, the VostroNet team visited the Aruba head office to meet with the head of design for internal/external access points; discussing the next generation of wi-fi access points (WAPS) including the Aruba 802.11ac ‘Wave 2’ range.
VostroNet was briefed on upcoming improvements for current and new generation Aruba wall-mounted access points, the new WAPS designed to dramatically increase the quality of connections and are able to transmit big packet rates. A two-year roadmap of Aruba’s projects and feature sets was also discussed.
The team spoke with the Aruba designer regarding the potential new features in WAPs to test and notify if cabling pairs are incorrect or damaged, therefore saving hours of time on deployment.
The VostroNet team had the pleasure of attending the Consumer Technology Association’s showpiece consumer technology event, held between the 8th and 11th of January this year in Las Vegas, NV; identified as the biggest consumer tech show on earth.
CES 2018 was an opportunity for the VostroNet team to explore the latest consumer technology on the market, and discover which products will shape the future of household technology.
