PIPE Networks forms the backbone of our Australian east coast network.
VentraIP Australia has been utilising PIPE Networks services since our small beginnings in 2008, and our relationship continues to grow. We now hold PIPE peering services in our three Australian PoP‘s (Brisbane, Melbourne and Sydney), transit services in Sydney and we are housed in the Melbourne PIPE DC2, Sydney’s PIPE Landing Station and Brisbane’s PIPE DC3. Each of our Australian data centre PoP’s is then conencted via PIPE intercapital connections to provide additional speed and redundancy.
