Publicly-listed data infrastructure and network services provider 5G Networks is offering Australian businesses deals on dark fibre, enabled by its ongoing metro fibre build for the enterprise.

In a statement, the company said companies would have full control over their network gear and connection settings. Dark fibre allows firms to use their own equipment at both ends.

Access is being offered to any inter-connected data centre in each Australian metro region for $750 a month on a five-year contract. Users will have to commit to a minimum of five links and sign up before the build is completed.

All managed service providers, application service providers, network and cloud providers are eligible to apply.

5G Networks managing director Joe Demase said the company was aggressively building fibre access to more than 80 market leading data centres across Brisbane, Sydney, Melbourne, Adelaide and, in future, Perth as part of their digital growth strategy.

“Metro Fibre networks are one of the key enablers for the Australian digital economy and 5GN wants to unlock this technology for our wholesale channel partners and enterprise customers,” he said.

“We are actively developing our wholesale channel and this offer is critical in supporting this growth objective. At $750/month, dark fibre access is now attainable for many of our partners looking to build high-speed connectivity to their customers and their digital infrastructure in the data centre.”

“National and global access to lower latency, secure and dedicated networking are just some of the requirements Australian business are demanding; as a result 5G Networks are investing heavily in metro-fibre access in Australia and we intend to enable this for our partners to sell."

Active Vs. Passive DWDM Solutions

An active approach to your growing optical transport network & connectivity needs.

Building dark fibre network infrastructure using WDM technology used to be considered a complex challenge that only carriers have the means to implement.

This has led many enterprises to build passive networks, which are inferior in quality and ultimately limit their future growth.

Why are passive solutions considered inferior? And what makes active solutions great?

Read more about these two solutions, and how PacketLight fits into all this.
