On the 8th April, NetComm Wireless Limited was proud to announce it would be supplying supply- ing the network access devices needed to connect homes and businesses to nbn™ Fibre-to- the-Curb (nbn™ FTTC), official- ly launched by NBN Co Limited (nbn). nbn™ FTTC is set to bring fi- bre-like speeds to a million Aus- tralian premises using world first reverse powered Distribution Point Unit (DPU) and Network Connection Device (NCD) tech- nology developed by NetComm Wireless. This innovative solution has been developed by teams of highly skilled Australian engi- neers working from NetComm Wireless’ Sydney and Melbourne based Centres of Excellence. The Company’s end-to-end product design, development and test- ing processes are conducted in- house to ensure the highest qual- ity standards and fastest time to deployment. Ken Sheridan, CEO and Manag- ing Director, NetComm Wireless said: “We are honoured to be nbn’s supplier on this important world first project. It is the product of Australian innovation and ingenu- ity and the benefits to Australian households and businesses will be profound. Having met nbn’s exacting technical and quality standards, our solution is receiv- ing significant interest from lead- ing telcos in global markets and leading to export sales.” Brad Whitcomb, NBN Co’s Chief Customer Officer - Residential said: “Today’s announcement demonstrates that NBN Co is an adopter of new and innovative technologies to provide Austral- ians with access to fast broad- band. “Over the past few months, we have been working closely with service providers to test our sys- tems and processes, the perfor- mance of the nbn™ FTTC access technology, as well as the new self-installation experience. “As with the introduction of any new technology, we will continue to gain insights as we navigate the complexity of the build as well as potential issues which can arise when people connect to the network.” NetComm Wireless is an Austral- ian based company passionate about bringing faster broadband to more homes sooner. Working closely with nbn to understand the challenges and opportuni- ties the Australian environment has, lead to the development of the world’s first reverse powered DPU and NCD allowing for fibre like speeds over copper. The NetComm Wireless’ DPU allows nbn to bypass costly and disruptive civil works on pri- vate property required for Fib- er-to-the-Premises (FTTP) to bring faster broadband to more homes sooner. The DPU is in- stalled in the telecommunications pit at the outside boundary, where it connects up to four premises to fibre using existing copper lines. The DPU is used in conjunction with NetComm Wireless’ NCD to provide a real alternative to FTTP. The NCD is self-installed by the customer and combines a Gfast and VDSL modem as well as a reverse power feed to power the DPU from inside the premises and save on the cost of running a powerline to individual units. NetComm Wireless’ VDSL and Gfast DPUs are designed to de- liver assured broadband perfor- mance through the extension of managed connectivity and the integration of network grade diag- nostics, performance monitoring and remote management func- tions. Engineered to support the up- grade path to Gigabit speeds, NetComm Wireless’ Gfast DPU uses the 212 MHz profile to max- imise speed, performance and capacity when required.
