NBN Co launched

NBN Co’s $32.5 million national operations centre in Digital Harbour was officially launched last month.

The facility is the National Broadband Network’s central hub, housing the facilities that will manage the day-to-day operations of the Australia-wide broadband service and enable telcos and ISPs to test the products and equipment they will make available as the NBN rolls out.

The company also unveiled two hands-on interactive resources – an experience centre at Docklands and a mobile demonstration vehicle – that will enable Australians to see for themselves how the NBN will work, what it involves and how communities stand to benefit as high speed broadband is delivered to every home and business.

The new facilities launched were:

  • Network Service and Operations Centre;
  • National Test Facility;
  • Discovery Centre, a hands-on interactive educational experience at Docklands; and
  • NBN Co Demonstration Truck, a 23-tonne mobile interactive discovery centre.

NBN Co CEO Mike Quigley said: “The facilities at Docklands are the nerve centre of the National Broadband Network and a hub for future innovation as we bring broadband to life across Australia.”

The facilities are the result of more than a year’s work and NBN Co will have created more than 900 jobs in Victoria by 2013.

It is estimated that up to 100,000 people a year will pass through the NBN Co truck and the Docklands Discovery Centre.

Individuals and groups interested in visiting these facilities can book online at http://www.nbnco.com.au
