Optus strengthens NSW Telco Authority’s reach


Telecommunications company Optus has expanded its partnership with NSW Telco Authority by increasing its reach to current regional network to provide life-saving communication solution for emergency services.

Optus has supplied the NSW Telco Authority with an additional eight ruggedised Kymeta U8 flat panel antenna.

The U8 is a portable ‘Comms on the Move’ antenna, provided in a ruggedised case which allows for easy transport and setup, Optus says.

NSW Telco Authority will leverage Optus’ satellite footprint to establish a virtual point-of-presence, supporting critical communications even when existing infrastructure has been compromised.

Optus claims the antenna is easy to deploy and will support data connectivity for deployable Cell on Wheels infrastructure.

“Optus is proud to play such a big part in supporting the New South Wales Telco Authority by providing critical communications infrastructure through Optus’ satellite technology. This infrastructure keeps New South Wales’ emergency services connected so they can continue to carry out the essential work that they do in our regional communities,” said Optus managing director enterprise and business Gladys Berejiklian.

Optus provides a managed satellite network to the NSW Telco Authority, supporting the agency in carrying its radio-over-IP traffic, as well as its 4G traffic, for fixed, redeployable and temporary locations.
