New Zealand research & education network REANNZ deploys world’s first 100Gbps research network across the Pacific. Distance is being eliminated with a demonstration of the world’s longest distance 100Gbps research network connection, showcasing New Zealand’s future capacity on the Southern Cross cable, at the REANNZ-hosted GLIF 2014 conference in Queenstown.

The 100Gbps network across the Pacific Ocean via the Southern Cross cable, is being deployed by REANNZ, provider of high-performance network services for New Zealand’s research and education communities, in collaboration with Chorus, Ciena, Juniper Networks, Level 3 Communications, Pacific Wave, Rydges Hotel, Southern Cross, and Vodafone. “This is the longest 100Gbps research network yet, spanning some 20,500km between Queenstown and California,” says Steve Cotter, CEO of REANNZ.
