Vivid commits to east coast rollout

Vocus to manage backbone

High performance access to file storage

4G network operator vividwireless remains committed to extending its network coverage across the Eastern states over the next year, and has signed data centre and dark fibre provider Vocus Communications for a multi-year IP transit deal.

Vocus will provide international internet access and domestic communication services via fully redundant 10Gb interfaces at its Perth IX Data Centre, where vividwireless already hosts its equipment.

While the initial requirement is for Perth capacity, Vocus confirmed that it will be partnering with vividwireless as it extends the 4G network through the Eastern seaboard later in 2011/2012.

“Mobile data is the fastest growing market segment, so it was important that we work with them to make sure that we could still deliver the high quality service but at a speed that supported vividwireless business vision," said James Spenceley, CEO of Vocus.

The Seven Group Holdings owned vividwireless, deployed Australias first 4G WIMAX wireless broadband network in Perth last year, and has continued with smaller deployments in Adelaide, Brisbane, Sydney, Melbourne and Canberra this year.

vividwireless CEO Martin Mercer said they chose Vocus due to their operations and flexibility. “The clincher was the willingness of the Vocus team to work with us to deliver a unique solution that would fit with our growing business," he said. He added that Vocus crafted a fully flexible commercial offering that allows vividwireless to turn up additional capacity at a moments notice. ®
