YourDC and Aussie Broadband deliver dark fibre build
Aussie Broadband has partnered with South Australian data centre provider YourDC to roll out 112 km of 360-core dark fibre throughout the greater Adelaide metropolitan area, giving hundreds of businesses up to 10 Gbps access and up to 100 Gbps for specialist applications.
The Aussie Broadband fibre build will connect YourDC’s Edinburgh Parks facility in the north and Hawthorn in the south, with six Points of Interconnect (known as POIs in the industry), located at St Marys, Edwardstown, Prospect, Greenfields, Elizabeth and Modbury.
Aussie Broadband CTO John Reisinger said YourDC was selected over other data centres primarily because of its ability to offer unique north-south corridor access and redundancy.
“With YourDC’s twin data centre format, we can offer our managed service provider (MSP) customers unparalleled redundancy,” Reisinger said.
“MSPs use our Carbon platform to connect their customers to the NBN, so providing stable, high-speed services for bandwidth-hungry applications basically helps them grow their business.
“Each of the POIs will have a link back to each of the two YourDC data centres. If there was a natural disaster in one region, like a flood or blackout, we have automatic failover and backup power to rely on in both locations.”
The work is now largely complete, and final completion of the project would be achieved in early 2022.
