Broadband network at home in Docklands

Broadband network at home in Docklands Image

NBN Co has started operating from its new national headquarter in Digital Harbour, Docklands.

Last month about 200 staff moved into the Innovation Building where NBN Co will occupy some 4000 sq m across four floors.

When fully operational mid-next year, the company responsible for the national broadband rollout will employ 425 people at Docklands.

Docklands is the site of its national operations centre including its service activation centre, network and services operations centre (NSOC) and national test facility.

Modifications are still being made to the building but NBN Co says these should be completed this month.

CEO Mike Quigley said the company was happy to be in Docklands.

“We are very pleased with how the new facility has taken shape so quickly, and the benefits it has delivered to our business. We look forward to building our presence in the Docklands area,” he told Docklands News.

“This facility will be the centrepiece of our network and the key interface with our customers, the retail service providers, who will be using our network to provide high-speed services to their business and residential customers across Australia.”

From Docklands, NBN Co will monitor and manage the National Broadband Network and facilities, order service connections and fault repairs, and allow telecommunications companies using the network to test their services before rollout.

The NSOC is now operational, managing the National Broadband Network 24 hours-a-day, seven-days-a-week.

The test facility is also fully operational and has been since the end of June. It has been used to successfully evaluate technology used in greenfields or new estate developments, as well as to ensure the interoperability of networks and technical systems of the various service providers who will offer services to consumers over the network.
