Chorus Relay Connect is an optical transport network product that provides a high-bandwidth, reliable and cost-effective data transport solution connecting New Zealand’s major urban centres. It’s an essential building block in supporting you to construct national transport networks to meet the rapidly growing demand for capacity.

Chorus Relay Connect transports traffic between two UFB Candidate Areas by collecting traffic from aggregation nodes at Points of Interconnection and First Data Switches (for carrying copper traffic only). It is provided from exchange to exchange in specified locations and traffic can be handed back to RSP’s nominated footprints or Central Office by combining with other backhaul products.

With our extensive network coverage, you can connect and backhaul your customers around the country from Kerikeri to Invercargill in a cost-effective way.

We carefully plan our diverse routes at the eastern and western sides to maximise network protection. We constantly review capacity and reserve it for our customers’ future needs. We regularly upgrade our networks to meet the demands of exponential traffic growth. 

The Chorus Relay Connect is available in 10G and 100G with the open term, 12-month, 24-month, 36-month, 48-month and 60-month term discount options.

The exchange list and indictive maps are published in the Resources section.
