Managed Access and Edge (MAE)

Connecting member’s local network with the REANNZ network.

Managed Access and Edge (MAE) devices connect a member’s local network with the REANNZ network, enabling data transfers both nationally and internationally. 

REANNZ managed edge devices are engineered and configured for high performance to meet the specialist needs of the research community when transferring large volumes of data. It also supports Science DMZ infrastructure to enable unhindered data transferring capability.

REANNZ offers a variation to MAE through the MAE Lite service, that is designed for smaller or more remote locations where a direct fibre connection is not available. Find more information about MAE Lite here.

The University of Auckland increased its data transfer speeds tenfold by going live with 100 Gbps MAE connection to REANNZ, read more about how they have been utilising their connectivity and data transfer node here in this case study.
