TelstraClear Arms New Zealand Defence Force With Technology Step Change

5 December 2008 - The power and capability of TelstraClear's Next IP Network will provide the backbone of a technology step change for the New Zealand Defence Force over the next decade.

The 10 year partnership with TelstraClear will see the NZ Defence Force armed with a dedicated 10 gigabit advanced IP network called ENIGMA that will provide high capacity, ultra high-speed connectivity throughout New Zealand and beyond.

TelstraClear's Chief Executive Officer Dr Allan Freeth says ENIGMA future proofs the NZ Defence Force. Military organisations are extremely large and complex and bring with them an ever evolving set of requirements.

"ENIGMA provides for the needs of three services as one force, covering the whole gambit of security, performance, flexibility, scalability, agility and cost effectiveness," Dr Freeth said.

"ENIGMA is a purpose built solution, modelled on our well tested and successful KAREN network that provides Next Generation telecommunications links for New Zealand researchers, educators and innovators. ENIGMA provides the NZDF with a solution that bridges the gap between the rigour and uncompromising nature of the military and the people and community elements of the Service," he said

Dr Freeth said TelstraClear welcomes the opportunity to be part of a 'ground breaking' arrangement as noted by the NZDF in their media statement.

"We are committed to providing leading edge solutions and innovations through-out the 10 year partnership," Dr Freeth said.
