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.”

It’s perfect for mobile workers. Just take it out — it’s small enough to sit anywhere — turn it on, load a sheet of paper, and start printing.

Wireless printing from my iPhone was also a handy feature, the whole experience was quick and seamless with no setup requirements - accessed through the default iOS printing menu options.

A smarter way to print for busy small business owners, combining speedy printing with scanning and copying, making it easier to produce high quality documents and images at a touch of a button.

I've had a multifunction printer in the office going on 10 years now. It was a neat bit of kit back in the day -- print, copy, scan, fax -- when printing over WiFi felt a bit like magic. It’s seen better days though and an upgrade’s well overdue. This HP OfficeJet Pro 8730 looks like it ticks all the same boxes: print, copy, scan, and fax. (Really? Does anyone fax anything any more? I guess it's good to know the facility’s there, just in case.) Printing over WiFi is more-or- less standard these days.
