The Internode national network extends across Australia to Sydney, Melbourne, Brisbane, Adelaide, Hobart, Darwin, Canberra, and Perth.
About the Internode National Network
Our national network extends to all major capital cities within Australia. Controlling our own private IP network means we can provide our customers with high quality, high performance connectivity to the Internet within Australia.
National network highlights
- Points of presence (POP's) are located in Adelaide, Sydney, Melbourne, Brisbane, Canberra, Perth, Hobart and Darwin.
- Cross-connected, geographically independent POP's in most capital cities provide redundancy. Each major PoP is capable of sustaining the load of our customer base in that region. Which means that in the event of a failure at one POP, connectivity is still available through the second PoP, keeping downtime to a minimum.
- We connect to Internet 'peering' exchanges across the country including: PIPE Networks in Adelaide, Brisbane, Hobart, Melbourne and Sydney; Equinix in Sydney; and WAIX in Perth.
- We peer directly with the Australian Academic and Research Network (AARNet) in many places across the country. This gives our customers the best possible connectivity to AARNet customers, which include: many of Australia's Universities, the CSIRO and other research networks.
- Our national network is based on a two-level hierarchy, starting with an optical SDH layer using Cisco ONS carrier switching equipment, offering carrier grade protected switching circuits across the country. The optical switching layer powers an MPLS IP backbone network, based on carrier-grade routers, located across Australia and in our international POP's in the United States.
- Connectivity to our Global network is from three POP's in Sydney and one in Perth, providing geographical redundancy for Global connectivity.
