As you may have noticed – the layout of the network as presented on the front page of our live Weathermap has recently changed quite dramatically. This change is a result of the multiple improvements made to the network over the past year or so. These improvements have often been hidden from view through the Weathermap, so we are pleased that this now represents the network as it stands.

One of the key features represented by the new layout is the completion of the deployment of additional resiliency into each of the 6 major centres – Auckland, Hamilton, Palmerston North, Wellington, Christchurch and Dunedin. In each of these areas we now have either two or three PoP’s in central locations, offering the highest level of diversity to members’ connections in these areas. If your organisation would like to discuss additional connections to our new locations please email us.

Also represented are the improvements we’ve recently completed in our regional networks. We now have dual, resilient links into New Plymouth, Whanganui, Rotorua, Napier, Nelson, Blehneim, Lincoln and Invercargil, improving both the number of locations available to the membership and the resiliency of connectivity into these areas. Watch out for another article going into these improvements in more depth soon. We are also kicking off investigations for improvements around Tauranga, central North Island and the East Cape, so there may be more things to come for our regional centres.
