SUNA stretches across the Tasman


Intelematics Australia, operator of the SUNA Traffic Channel real-time traffic information service, is now operating an equivalent in New Zealand - SUNA Live Traffic Updates.

Drivers in and around Auckland, Wellington and Christchurch can now receive live traffic information on Garmin nüvi GPS units and (with an in-app purchase) on the Magellan RoadMate AU and NZ App for iPhone.

The information is transmitted by the SUNA Live Traffic Updates service operated by Intelematics Australia. New Zealand data is collected from 'probe' vehicles that report their location and speed, augmented with information from The Radio Network's Time Saver Traffic service, the New Zealand Transport Agency, emergency services, and local governments.

"SUNA Traffic Channel will help motorists better navigate New Zealand's busiest roads by providing real-time traffic updates so drivers are aware of incidents that are causing traffic delays," said Intelematics Australia CEO Adam Game. "This information will allow drivers to better plan their journey, avoid areas of congestion and reach their destination on time. Even if a faster alternative isn't available, accurate information on time of arrival can reduce stress and contribute to a safer driving environment."

Other Intelematics Australia partners are expected to start offering the service to their New Zealand customers starting later this year.

Active Vs. Passive DWDM Solutions

An active approach to your growing optical transport network & connectivity needs.

Building dark fibre network infrastructure using WDM technology used to be considered a complex challenge that only carriers have the means to implement.

This has led many enterprises to build passive networks, which are inferior in quality and ultimately limit their future growth.

Why are passive solutions considered inferior? And what makes active solutions great?

Read more about these two solutions, and how PacketLight fits into all this.
