Internode ramps up network capacity by 130 per cent

SA-based ISP upgrades network including rolling out 10 gigabit links between capital cities

South-Australia based ISP, Internode, has bolstered its IP network capacity through a network upgrade.

The ISP rolled out five 10 gigabit links between Adelaide, Sydney, Canberra and Melbourne, which Internode claims has pushed inter-city network capacity up by 150 per cent.

It has also boosted capacity between Tasmania and the mainland by 80 per cent to accommodate for a data traffic influx partially attributed to stage one of the National Broadband Network (NBN) trials occurring in the state.

Overall, Internode’s IP network has experienced a 130 per cent increase in capacity.

“As well as making our national network simpler to manage, getting rid of that plethora of smaller links allows us to use our network much more effectively,” Internode network architect, Daryl Collins, said in a statement.

“While this improved design is invisible to customers, they benefit from Internode’s network continuing to evolve to meet their needs, whether that’s delivering highly responsive performance for online services and gaming or large data quotas for accessing IPTV and other data-rich content.”

For work use, Microsoft Word and Excel programs pre-installed on the device are adequate for preparing short documents.

LIFEBOOK UH574

The Fujitsu LifeBook UH574 allowed for great mobility without being obnoxiously heavy or clunky. Its twelve hours of battery life did not disappoint.

STYLISTIC Q702

The screen was particularly good. It is bright and visible from most angles, however heat is an issue, particularly around the Windows button on the front, and on the back where the battery housing is located.

STYLISTIC Q702

My first impression after unboxing the Q702 is that it is a nice looking unit. Styling is somewhat minimalist but very effective. The tablet part, once detached, has a nice weight, and no buttons or switches are located in awkward or intrusive positions.
