The evolution of UFB – 2, 4, and 8Gbps Hyperfibre
“Hyperfibre” is the next generation of fibre services built on the development of the UFB network. The technical name for Hyperfibre is “XGS-PON” and it can reach symmetrical speeds of up to 10Gbps.
Hyperfibre services launched to date support best effort symmetric speeds up to 8Gbps.
Who's Hyperfibre for?
Hyperfibre is ideal for companies that require a huge amount of bandwidth to shift large quantities of data, fast. Hyperfibre is ideal for businesses that:
- Need robust, symmetric bandwidth
- Support remote branches over MPLS and VPN
- Have a large quantity of users running HD voice and video applications (4K/8K) and pretty much all other cloud apps simultaneously
- Require rapid prototyping and deployment at scale
- Depend on offsite or Cloud server/application hosting and backup
- Upload and share huge files

Bridge mode means business
Bridge mode is how we describe an ONT’s setting where the Residential Gateway (RGW) features such as Wi-Fi and Ethernet ports are disabled. Bridge mode allows you to connect your router to the 1x 10GE (LAN 10G) 10GBase-T 10Gbps ethernet port on the back.
If you’re looking to supply a Business grade service, then you want to avoid RGW mode as it is akin to a residential service, limiting your ability to ensure your customers network is secure and designed properly.
To support our wholesale partners, all Lightwire Hyperfibre connections are deployed in Bridge (Standard) mode only.
Hyperfibre + Managed Routers
If you don’t have a Hypefibre capable router, that being a router with a 10GE port and sufficient processing capability to handle the speeds, or if you want Lightwire to manage one on your behalf, our recommendation is the FortiGate 100F.
Looking for something a little less grunty? A popular BYOD choice amongst the SMB market is the UniFi Dream Machine, although that won’t be a suitable choice over the Enable network.
So thanks from all the team at Unit Networks, your team makes light work of what can sometimes be very challenging situations.
4Gbps Hyperfibre services are available in Auckland, Hamilton, Wellington and Christchurch. The 2Gbps option is available in all other enabled locations.
Please note that Hyperfibre is not available everywhere and is subject to availability.
Got clients in Wellington and need a diverse fibre service to use in conjunction with a Chorus service that doesn’t sacrifice your clients’ speed?
Through our partnership with Vital Fibre, you can offer clients diversity and resilience in the Wellington region with symatrical speeds of up to 10Gbps.
