Telecommunications Infrastructure

Building a fast, dependable and dynamic future.

Parkes has an extensive fibre optic telecommunications infrastructure. Twin fibre optic cables pass through Parkes joining Brisbane and Melbourne and a third fibre optic cable connects Parkes with Sydney. This provides Parkes with an instant alternative to replace a failed cable so that no communication linkage is lost. This infrastructure provides a high level of communications security

The rollout of the National Broadband Network (NBN) will further strengthen telecommunications and increase the opportunity for virtual communication, vastly reducing the tyranny of distance, dramatically increasing opportunities, and decreasing cost for organisations to relocate to this regional centre.

An opportunity exists to develop a platform for a “Communications Hub” and would be of interest to a number of IT and communications businesses which rely on constant data flow and access.
