Plans are now underway to increase the bandwidth and diversity of the New Zealand Internet Exchange’s inter datacentre links in Auckland. 

The new AKL-Ring will see a 200G diverse link between each datacentre, ensuring healthy available capacity and reducing unpredictable spikes, so things like NZ digital sports delivery won’t go beyond our utilization tolerances.

Unfortunately, the AKL-Ring project has suffered delays due to COVID restrictions however is now over 50% completed.

Engineers have sourced diverse fibres to our existing infrastructure through Vodafone and are underway in delivering these fibres to each Auckland datacentre.
