Fibre providers get behind NextDC's Queensland facility

Fibre carriers such as AAPT, Nextgen Networks, Optus/UeComm, Pipe Networks, Primus Telecom, Telstra and Vocus will have diverse fibre hauled into the B1 facility

Datacentre builder, NextDC, is anticipating its Brisbane datacentre ‘B1’ will be the most widely and diversely connected co-location facility in the state.

It expects fibre carriers such as AAPT, Nextgen Networks, Optus/UeComm, Pipe Networks, Primus Telecom, Telstra and Vocus will have diverse fibre hauled into B1 soon or after its planned opening.

According to a NextDC statement, almost all of the carriers have committed or advised they’re looking to establish points-of-presence (PoPs) in the facility.

Having these PoPs in place enables carriers to supply B1 customers with internet transit, interstate capacity, national MPLS and L2 wholesale transmission services.

Network service providers, Internode and Platform Networks intend to provide mega PoPs and supply their entire suite of network services.

Brisbane City Council, Energex and Citec will also maintain their own dedicated fibre optic cables within the facility.

“Having access to as many diverse fibre providers at B1 is important for us and our customers,” NextDC founder and managing director, Bevan Slattery, said.

B1 will also be the first facility in Queensland to host both Pipe Networks and Waix peering internet exchanges, which allow network providers, content delivery networks and cloud providers to exchange data locally.
