Service providers

EdgeCentres for service providers

With around 100 ISPs in New Zealand, homes and businesses have enormous choice when it comes to picking a broadband provider.

A strong brand with smart marketing will gain cut-through, however, it’s customer experience which is key to underpinning long-term success.

By using EdgeCentres to position your assets at the heart of Chorus’s fibre network, you can deliver the high-speed low-latency performance your customers and brand deserve.

Deliver the ultimate customer experience

For broadband consumers, performance is everything. A service provider’s reputation and ability to grow user numbers is greatly affected by how well its core service functions.

Using a single data centre or overseas data centre can create the kind of latency and speed issues which can frustrate users and potentially loses customers.

Chorus EdgeCentres will help you overcome these problems by taking you closer to your domestic and business consumers.

EdgeCentres offer the perfect solution, enabling businesses to enjoy cost and performance efficiencies by keeping their hardware at nearby state-of-art data facilities.

Being so close to the Chorus fibre network delivers fast internal systems as well as direct access to the cloud applications and content you require.

Private network with public cloud perfection

Your private network is the foundation of your business. The faster and more reliable it is, the better your business operations will perform.

With technology continually evolving and data use growing exponentially, your business needs a network solution that can move with the times.
