NetComm bags NBN device deal

Ericsson shares the A$1.1bn love

Security for virtualized datacentres

Australian datacomms vendor NetComm has secured an NBN Co device supply contract via core NBN wireless vendor Ericsson.

Under the deal with Ericsson, NetComm will provide fixed-wireless LTE devices to connect premises to the NBN Co's LTE broadband network with a three year window to complete. The supply period starts in mid 2012.

NBN Co awarded Ericsson the $AU1.1bn contract to build and operate its fixed-wireless broadband network, which will connect rural and regional Australian households and businesses to a 2.3GHz LTE network.

NetComm MD David Stewart said: "We are pleased to be working with Ericsson on this landmark project. This collaboration reflects NetComm's firm commitment to working with world class network providers. The deal is expected to have a significant impact on NetComm's revenue from 2013 to 2015 financial years."

NetComm launched one of the world's first wireless LTE Routers at the Mobile World Congress in Barcelona this year and has attracted international and local interest in its growing portfolio.

“Thanks to this local collaboration, we are able to facilitate the efficient delivery of LTE-based broadband services to homes and businesses that are usually disadvantaged because of their remote location," said Sam Saba, head of Ericsson in Australia. ®
