Network Transformation - Revolutionizing Broadband in the Land Down Under

Case Study

Revolutionizing broadband in the land down under

Delivering an open access broadband network to the entire Australian continent presents a significant challenge. Based on our track record around the globe for designing, deploying and operating HFC networks, nbn turned to ARRIS to help them deploy, integrate and bring their world-class broadband network to life.

Meeting the demands of an aggressive schedule and overcoming numerous obstacles along the way the team continues to work alongside nbn to bring the high speed broadband network to millions of Australian homes and businesses.
