Australia's telecoms infrastructure databased

Telecoms market research company, Market Clarity, has launched a database service for carriers, service providers and government agencies seeking information on the location, ownership and components of Australia's telecoms infrastructure.

Market Clarity says the database includes the infrastructure holdings deployed and in service of 104 different infrastructure owners. Entries have been correlated and indexed into key categories covering location, technology and ABS population, household and business demographics.

According to MD, Shara Evans: "The database allows you to identify telecoms infrastructure by ownership and location captured to state, statistical division, statistical-sub division and postcode levels. Infrastructure identification can also be correlated to the presence of competing infrastructure. The database also includes the technology and location of backhaul services, access services, and information about residential, business and population demographics."

The database is claimed to hold details on 4,000 DSLAM locations, 600 access fibre service areas, HFC network coverage and more than 1,000 fixed wireless broadband base stations. Also included are location details of 2G and 3G mobile network base stations and long-haul networks covering 200+ towns served by fibre and microwave.

Evans said the database had been developed over the past 10 months drawing on primary research, carrier and service provider resources and ACMA radiocommunications license applications. Also used were diverse secondary research sources such as news articles, press releases, service maps and published industry studies by the federal government, industry groups, and state and local governments.

There is no direct online access to the database: Market Clarity will use it to respond to specific requests from customers and will charge according to the time taken to fulfil the request, plus a charge for use of the intellectual property it contains, Evans said.
