Fastcom is a New Zealand-based managed services provider that specializes in networking, telecommunications, cloud, security, business community, and IT services. Central to Fastcom’s services and solutions is its own MPLS network that operates in both Australia and NZ, interconnecting with a number of primary carriers in both countries.To ensure it could onboard new customers and provision/support networking services both efficiently and cost-effectively as growth accelerated, Fastcom realized that it needed to upgrade its network.


  • Network automation around a highly complex, reliable, flexible, secure, and scalable IP network
  • Ability to embed and automate business rules with zero-touch provisioning
  • Efficient and rapid onboarding of new capacity and capability to support customer demands
"We are currently only using a fraction of the capabilities of our Extreme Fabric switches, and are now starting to explore the use of Fabric Attach technology to extend the automation, configuration, and management benefits of fabric networking into more devices across the network. This will deliver additional capability and benefits to our customers."
