The wired home is no longer the realm of dreams. But neither is it totally real. It has simply taken too long to come, and has still come to too few homes, seemingly beyond the reach of most. All that may be about to quickly change, according to CSIRO’s Australian Centre for Broadband Innovation. In fact, the future looks ‘appy’ for Aussie broadband-connected homes, according to the nation’s premier research group.
The National Broadband Network Company (NBN Co) has completed the first in a series of enhancements to the fibre optic network to help enable Australian businesses to make the most of high speed broadband. NBN for Business will allow service providers to offer businesses the ability to run up to 50 voice services over the fibre network. The service also offers extended levels of support for internet service providers, such as seven-day-a-week service and a one-hour response time to incidents. Jim Hassell, Head of Product Development and Sales for NBN Co, said: “NBN for Business offers service providers the tools to tailor packages for businesses, allowing them to make use of a host of new digital tools to increase productivity and maintain their competitive edge.” “By embracing new technologies, Australian businesses can become more agile and responsive to their customers’ needs, potentially lower their operating costs and open up new markets.”
