Get prepared now!
All types of nbn™ network connections that utilise a physical line running to the premises are considered fixed line connections. A nbn™ Fibre to the Node (FTTN) connection is utilised in circumstances where the existing copper network will be used to make the final part of the nbn™ network connection, from a nearby FTTN cabinet or micro-node to your premises. The fibre node is likely to take the form of a street cabinet. Each street cabinet will allow the nbn™ network signal to travel over optic fibre from the exchange to the cabinet, and connect with the existing copper network to reach your premises.
Equipment connected over the nbn™ network will not work during a power blackout. Speak to us about alternative forms of power available like a small UPS (Uninterruptible Power Supply) to suit your needs.
Depending on your needs, your standard setup will include some or all of the equipment shown below.
