A partnership with Australian national network provider Nextgen means Intellipath has expanded its reach creating what may be the region’s largest bandwidth-on-demand service.
Intellipath previously only offered its services in New Zealand, the west coast of the USA, Sydney and Melbourne. The deal with Nextgen means it now covers the rest of Australia including Perth, Brisbane, Canberra and Adelaide.
It now reaches 45 Australian data centres and a total of 63 worldwide. The network has connections to the main Australian data centres including Metronode, Equinix and NextDC. It reaches all the main cloud services including AWS and Microsoft Azure.
IntelliPath is a subsidiary of Vibe Communications. In effect, it offers a wide-area-network as a service.
This works in much the same way as companies already buy cloud computing services on demand. IntelliPath allows them to create a contract-free communications link in a matter of seconds.
In practice it means an organisation can respond immediately to a business need or an emerging opportunity, only paying for the communications services they consume at the time.
