As a business nbn™ accredited adviser, it is Qbit’s goal to give you the facts about the nbn™ broadband access network so that you can make an informed decision on which business nbn™ wholesale solution to implement for your specific needs.
The nbn™ access network requires a unique mix of technologies they call the Multi Technology Mix (MTM) comprising of;
- nbn™ Fibre to the Premise (FTTP),
- nbn™ Fibre to the Node (FTTN),
- nbn™ Fibre to the Basement (FTTB),
- nbn™ Fibre to the Curb (FTTC),
- nbn™ Hybrid Coaxial Cable (HFC),
- nbn™ Fixed Wireless and Sky Muster™ satellite are used mostly in regional and remote areas.
The difference between each type of connection comes down to how nbn™ utilise existing network technology in connecting the nearest available fibre node to a specific premise, except for wireless and satellite solutions where connections are spread out geographically over many square kilometres.
Some technologies have different maximum speeds, and the quality of the connection can also vary. Every business site location has an assigned technology, with the option of upgrading to business nbn™ Enterprise Ethernet for customers who need high levels of speed, performance and reliability. Currently, nbn™ has a generous allowance to cover the install cost for business nbn™ Enterprise Ethernet to each location, so it is well worth considering.
