Moving to the NBN the Right WayPosted: Wednesday September 27, 2017
Moving to the NBN can be tricky, with many things to consider. For example:
- Do you have facilities which rely on fixed landlines for service, such as EFTPOS, back-to-base alarm systems, emergency lift phones, etc?
- Which NBN technology are you connecting with? In general, you will lose a phone line to establish a Fibre to the Node (FTTN) connection, but not with other NBN technologies.
- Are your internal telecoms systems compatible with NBN, such as phone systems and internet routers/firewalls? (If you have installed a phone system and network equipment from Southern Computer Co the answer is YES!)
To ensure a seamless transition to the NBN we suggest taking the following steps:
- Engage an experienced and independent consultant (like Southern Computer Co) to ensure your requirements will be met in the most cost-effective manner.
- Bring your internal business technology up to date well in advance of ordering NBN services. All phone systems installed by Southern Computer Co are 100% NBN compatible.
- Make alternate arrangements for services which rely on fixed landlines, such as Fax, EFTPOS and alarm systems. Southern Computer Co can assist with these changes.
- Check for contracts and terms with your existing provider for ADSL internet and phone line services.
- Remember that fixed landline services will be shut down 18 months after the NBN becomes available in your area, so don’t leave the switch to the last minute!
