Predictable routing
The IZO network platform is designed to uniquely engineer the public internet for predictable routing, together with enterprise cloud connectivity and interconnected data centres.

The newly released platform comprises of IZO Internet WAN, IZO Private and IZO Public. Each of these is designed to address a significant issue faced by enterprises managing cloud solutions.

IZO Internet WAN brings the security, flexibility and predictability of a private network to the public internet. IZO Public tags and prioritises content and IZO Private connects businesses to cloud service providers via private network connectivity.
