CLEAR Service To Revolutionise Business Networking

New CLEAR Service To Revolutionise Business Networking

CLEAR Communications has announced that it is developing an IP-based wide area network (WAN) service that will be the first of its type in New Zealand, and among the first in the world.

The new service, which will be launched within the next three months, uses leading edge technology to provide broadband access that enables businesses to easily migrate to high-speed networking. This will deliver New Zealand businesses considerable advantages both in terms of cost-savings, and increased flexibility to meet future communication needs.

Jane Hindle, Senior Manager Data Transport Services, says the new service represents a fundamental shift in the way that telecommunications companies service customers' communications needs.

"Once again CLEAR has proven itself to be an innovator by breaking ranks and offering a network solution that is market driven - rather than a so called 'solution' that in reality requires customers to tailor their communications needs to fit what is offered by telecommunications companies," says Ms Hindle.

Until now, businesses have had to undertake major software and hardware upgrades when migrating their networks to run TCP/IP, or take advantage of ATM. Even once this has been done, future upgrades have often proven to be costly.

"There's been a lot of talk in the media about the need for New Zealand to develop a knowledge-based economy. Ultimately the success of this will depend upon the quality of the communication systems available to New Zealand businesses.

"CLEAR is serious in our vision of becoming New Zealand's number one on-line service provider to businesses and this new offering is a prime example of how our on-line services are designed to help businesses succeed."

CLEAR is developing its new solution in response to business customers who said they wanted access to cost-effective and flexible broadband bandwidth.

"This innovative service will be a world-class development that provides a competitive advantage to New Zealand businesses.

"At the risk of sounding cliched, it is the network solution for the new millennium," says Ms Hindle.
