Aussie Broadband speeds NBN business connections with Carbon

RSP Aussie Broadband has revealed a new, homegrown system that will allow the activation of NBN business connections within minutes.

Aussie Broadband's Carbon platform is aimed at businesses, enterprise, and managed service providers.

As long as the premises are already served by the NBN, it will allow them to turn on business connections almost immediately.

"This is a masterpiece of innovation and software that makes it easy for anyone to sign up for business telco services," said managing director Phillip Britt.

"Ultimately, Carbon will enable someone to turn on a service at any location where NBN has been before – and it will happen within minutes, whereas previously it would typically take months to order a service.

"Carbon will change how MSPs and IT managers manage their business NBN services. It will allow businesses to order, configure and activate their enterprise services all in one place within a self-serve online portal.

"We believe we are the first telecommunications company in Australia ever to do this to this level."

The company already provides online sign-up for enterprise NBN customers, but Britt explained that Carbon goes much further as it allows businesses to purchase and customise their products and services online, including internet services, data centre connections, phone systems, MPLS networks, and SD-WAN networks.

That applies to enterprise clients assembling their own networks, and to managed service providers building tailored solutions for their customers.

"They’ll also be able to apply customer configurations to their services within seconds, as well as take advantage of single-click tests and diagnostics, real-time monitoring of bandwidth and data use, and centralised notifications, billing and support," said Britt.

"And yet another benefit is transparency – business customers will be able to see the plans and prices of all products on the portal."

Carbon was built in-house by Aussie Broadband’s development team, and is based on Cisco's Meraki platform.

"We are very excited to partner with Aussie Broadband for the launch of the Carbon Business Platform,” said Cisco Meraki global SP and channel SE director Dimitri Polydorou. “This is based on a Cisco validated design for Meraki Platform on the NBN."

He added "We are always looking to help our partners solve real customer problems with the Meraki platform, leveraging industry leading automation. Aussie Broadband’s new online business platform will completely streamline your entire ICT operation to better support your business. We truly believe that this new product will revolutionise how business connectivity is managed."

Aussie Broadband recently announced that 1Gbps plans will be available soon to customers on NBN FTTP and those parts of the HFC network that have been upgraded to DOCSIS 3.1.
