What Is Ten Gigabit Adelaide?
Ten Gigabit Adelaide is a revolutionary high-speed, high-performance fibre optic data network that is being rolled out to commercial buildings across the City of Adelaide. The network will enable businesses and organisations to access a range of cloud-based services and phenomenal 10Gbps data speeds.
This critical infrastructure will unleash a wide range of new possibilities for businesses and organisations, without being inhibited by the restrictions and congestion often experienced with traditional internet services. Each service in the Ten Gigabit Adelaide suite has its own, dedicated and uncontested connection, meaning businesses can access the same upload and download speeds via a clean, super-fast, low-latency connection.
Who is it for?
Ten Gigabit Adelaide is specifically designed for businesses and organisations located in the City of Adelaide, giving City-based businesses a distinct competitive advantage. It is currently being rolled out to 1,000 buildings throughout the CBD and along the main commercial strips in North Adelaide.
This in turn will help to retain and attract new businesses to the City of Adelaide, create jobs, drive innovation and investment, and generate significant economic, social and financial benefits for the City and the local community.
How does it work?
TPG is installing the fibre optic network via ducts and pits in the ground and then connecting fibre optic cables direct to individual buildings. A connection point is being installed in each of the 1,000 selected buildings.
Unique fibre extensions are being made for each business customer within the connected buildings, providing a direct access point to a symmetrical 10Gbps transmission link. Businesses can purchase a service, or several services, via the Ten Gigabit Adelaide network access point. Large businesses can choose to have multiple access points, with the comfort of knowing each one is independent and will provide secure, reliable and symmetrical 10Gbps performance.
What Services Will Be Available?
Businesses that are in one of the Ten Gigabit Adelaide connected buildings will be able to choose from the latest and proven business data capabilities, applications, services and tools.
The first wave of services that will be offered through Ten Gigabit Adelaide by TPG include:
