Billing Method

Safeguard your end user experience and ensure seamless performance even during unexpected surges in traffic by opting for our 95th percentile burstable billing model.

With this method, we continuously monitor bandwidth usage and eliminate the top 5% of recorded peaks over the billing cycle.

By basing your bill on the remaining highest bandwidth utilisation, you can effectively manage costs without compromising on available capacity  for your clients.

1 :1

Burstable Ratio

With a generous 3 to 1 burstable bandwidth ratio, you can enjoy the flexibility and scalability of utilising up to 3x your committed bandwidth.

Handle temporary increases in demand without needing to immediately upgrade bandwidth commitments. The result? Cost savings, efficient resource allocation, and peace of mind.

“DXC was looking for an agile partner to meet the needs of Queensland Rail during a period of rapid COVID-19 related change.

The solution had to be implemented within a remarkably short window, so we needed to partner with organisations that were agile and capable of delivering Enterprise grade solutions at short notice.”

IP Transit upgrade in 5 days.

DXC Technology was looking to ramp up IP Transit capacity for their client Queensland Rail during the height of COVID, but hit a wall with the incumbent IP transit provider to ramp up capacity. Sixty days was their stated lead time, and that wasn’t going to fly. 

Lightwire helped DXC deliver a significant IP transit capacity upgrade completed, tested, and put into production within 5 days.
