Cisco and NBN Co sign $9.5 million datacentre deal

Three-year contract to supply NBN Co with a datacentre computing platform

The company responsible for building the National Broadband Network, NBN Co, has picked global tech vendor, Cisco, to provide its datacentre equipment.

The deal is worth $9.5 million over three years and will involve providing a datacentre computing platform that includes computing, network, storage access and virtualisation.

According to a statement released by NBN Co, the deal was signed after a competitive tender process. Its head of corporate services, Kevin Brown, described Cisco as a leader in global networking equipment.

The announcement comes one day after NBN Co picked Global Switch to host its primary datacentre in a $3 million contract. The facility will be located in Ultimo, Sydney, and a second location, most probably in Melbourne, is expected to be announced in the near future by NBN Co.
