ARRIS to build next-gen broadband network in Oz

Australian government broadband taskforce NBN Co has chosen ARRIS to build its next-generation Hybrid Fiber-Coaxial (HFC) broadband network.

The project is set to revolutionize Australia’s broadband network by providing access to high-speed, reliable broadband services to homes and businesses across Australia.

Using HFC technology will allow NBN Co to build upon existing cable infrastructure which will mean significant cost savings for Australian tax-payers over alternative technologies. It also will allow advanced broadband speeds to be delivered to subscribers across Australia.

“NBN Co is committed to ensuring that everyone in Australia will have access to high-speed broadband services,” says NBN Co CTO, Dennis Steiger. “An HFC network represents the fastest and most cost-effective way to deliver it to consumers and businesses in the existing HFC network areas. Our goal is to achieve high-speed broadband as quickly possible, with an eye on future technologies that will secure our place as a global technology leader.”
