Australia's iiNet boosts network capacity
13.10.09

Australian ISP iiNet has boosted its metro network capacity with new routers installed across the country, as the company moves forwards with its plans to start offering IPTV services from the first quarter of next year.

The operator has installed the new Juniper Networks' MX series routers in its metro network exchanges across the country's largest cities, with capacity rising in some areas from 1 Gbps to 10 Gbps. The Sydney and Brisbane metro rings are reportedly already live, while Melbourne is due to be completed in the next few weeks.

"This project was borne through a desire to increase our network capacity, support a strategy of delivering value-added services and boost efficiencies on the iiNetwork," said Greg Bader, CTO of iiNet. "It's really the first step in creating a network that is built around the delivery of IPTV content.". Mr. Bader added that the ISP hopes to be offering trial IPTV services by this Christmas, and launch commercially in the first quarter of next year.

"This [Juniper] solution is primarily to support customers on our own DSLAMs, and it is a more robust efficient and flexible way of getting content closer to those DSLAMs," he said. "With Telstra Wholesale we just have to hand traffic off to Telstra and they handle it, so offering IPTV with any sort of QoS is a real challenge [...] To get linear content economically distributed, multicasting is the only way to go and unfortunately that restricts us to our own network rather than the Telstra Wholesale network."
