The nbn network is a government infrastructure project that will provide broadband internet and fixed phone line access to all Australians through a combination of optic fibre, and fixed wireless and satellite technology in the harder to reach areas.
Fibre improves the speed and quality of voice and data delivery, which will better serve Australian businesses in an increasingly connected global marketplace. The infrastructure is being rolled out by the government owned NBN.
The different types of NBN
The NBN uses a combination of different technologies to deliver high speeds and a stable network across, depending on where your business is located. Although the four listed below are not a complete list, just the more common technologies.
Fibre to the Premises (FTTP)
NBN supplied through the fttp is regarded as the superior method of supplying the network as is it works with an optic fibre cable running directly from NBNCo to your business. This means no traffic congestion and the highest available speeds. Unfortunately this is the most costly method for the government as it requires running brand new optic cables to every business in australia.
Fibre to the Node (FTTN)
The FTTN network works by taking advantage of the already rolled out copper network that has supplied Australia with the now inferior ADSL network. This works by rolling out brand new optic cables to centralised hubs (Nodes) then transferring the network across to the copper cables.
Fixed Wireless connection utilises data transmitted over radio signals to connect a premises to the NBNnetwork. This connection is typically used in circumstances where the distance between premises can be many kilometres. Data travels from a transmission tower located as far as 14 kilometres to an antenna that has been fitted to the premises by an approved nbn installer.
Hybrid Fibre Coaxial (HFC)
An nbn HFC connection is used in circumstances where the existing ‘pay TV’ or cable network can be used to make the final connect to the nbn network. In this circumstance a HFC line will be run from the nearest available fibre node, to your premises.
