RSP Aussie Broadband has contracted Telstra Wholesale to provide it with backhaul capacity between 42 NBN POIs and data centres in the remaining areas not covered by Aussie's own network.

When the rollout is complete, Aussie Broadband will have a minimum of 100Gbps capacity at each of the 121 NBN POIs – a significant upgrade on the current 10G or 20Gbps.

It also provides additional diversity: each POI will be connected to two separate capital city data centres, with equipment diversity at both ends.

In addition, Aussie will have more inter-capital capacity, with 400Gbps links on major routes and multiple 100Gbps connections to the remaining capitals.

Telstra Wholesale will use a combination of dark fibre and wavelengths to provide capacity to Aussie.

The increased capacity will support Aussie's plans to target the business and enterprise market with NBN Enterprise Ethernet and Telstra Ethernet services, as well as allowing expansion of the company's residential business.

A key part of Aussie's strategy for addressing the business market is its Carbon self-service portal.

"Carbon has been a game-changer for many of our larger corporate customers; helping them to fully customise, design and order telecommunication services rather than prescribing strict, pre-determined service packages," said Aussie Broadband managing director Phil Britt.

"Carbon is an industry-leading, one-stop shop for everything business and enterprise customers need. It is a key feature in our product suite, and it allows our customers a level of control over their services that they've never had access to before, positioning the company as a leader in the business and enterprise space."

New products aimed at larger businesses will be added to Carbon during the next six months, Britt said.
