We first rolled out a high-speed networking to service, among others, what was known as the Government Shared Network project, an anchor-tenant for whom FX Networks provided Dual 1Gbps circuits. Working out of our headquarters in Wellington, FX Networks moved swiftly to establish a viable telcommunications alternative for ISP's, businesses and other large institutions, offering POPs in 54 locations with unrivalled connections to other networks.
Cisco has been a sole equipment supplier to our optical network, with the latest Cisco architecture capable of 40Gbps per channel, and 100Gbps per channel a likely prospect over the next couple of years. (Currently, we have 60GB of a 160GB network lit, comprising 16 channels of 10Gbps.) Traffic over the network appears to be doubling every 15 months.
We're also multihomed upstream, with redundant international transit providers, and unlike other national transit providers, we practice an open peering policy and exchange traffic with peers on a least-cost, highest speed basis.
Our watchwords: vibrancy, diversity and reliability.
