The nbnTM is already rolling out across Australia. Once your building or site has an active nbnTM connection, there may be a vital service your business provides that no longer operates.
First some background: In the good old days power could be run over the copper wire your emergency telephone(s) operated on. Whether it was a standard phone line or Power Over Ethernet (POE) device, you could push power down the line to power a phone.
Replacing existing copper lines with the nbnTM (for both residential & commercial properties), fibre optic network causes a power issue because power cannot be used on this technology in the way we have come to expect. As a result a lift phone (emergency phone) or any line powered device will no longer operate.
Another issue is guaranteed service uptime. Without this guarantee your building will no longer meet the Australian Standards for emergency telephones and you maybe in breach of Workplace Health & Safety legislation, placing people at serious risk. Therefore, it is imperative any service has a battery backup.
To resolve the issue there is a cellular (GSM Network) alternative with battery backup that maximises uptime and allows for 24/7 monitoring and mandatory upgrades so you are always compliant with Building Code of Australia (BCA) rules and regulations.
