Dear AusNOG

With Sea-Me-We 3 down again, I have been approached by a number of people looking for smaller amounts of capacity from Australia to Singapore, so I reached out to David Hughes for his blessing to post this on AusNOG.

I am looking to see if other AusNOG Network Operators are interested in combining capacity requirements to achieve better overall pricing for capacity between Australia and Singapore.

With enough interest our target price will be $1.50 USD per mbit with a minimum purchase of 1G plus a port fee to cover the switching equipment.

If we can get enough AusNOG operators on board this will help significant reduce collectively everyone’s international bandwidth costs to Singapore.

The idea at this stage is to delivery capacity from Equinix SG1 in Singapore, to Melbourne NextDC M1 / Equinix ME1 along with Equinix SY1 in Sydney via a physical cross connections. If we get enough interest for a drop in Perth we will also look at this and could even hand off capacity over MegaPort or any virtual IX services anywhere in Australia.

We plan to use two Cisco Nexus 93180YC switches in each location allowing network operators to arrange multiply cross connections in each location and also providing equipment redundancy for the service. Cross connection speeds can be either 1G, 10G, 25G along with a few 100G ports also available.

Each network operator part of the group buy would be provided a number of switch ports in Singapore where external services can be ordered and patched into a full dot1q isolated network for each participate.

We also have access to Equinix Singapore IX Peering routes so happy to provide these to interested parties, also available if needed is the ability to co locate networking equipment by the RU within Equinix SG1.

If you are interested in joining forces please email or call me so I can start to collating everyone’s interest and bring all parties together.

Looking forward to hearing from you

Kindest Regards

James Braunegg
